1902-05-18: Juan Indart (Yndart) died at 76

ANOTHER PIONEER GONE — Last Sunday evening, May 18, 1902, news was received from San Jose conveying the sad intelligence of the death of Juan INDART. Deceased had been in ill health for some months past and as his condition did not seem to improve at his home in Santa Anita, it was decided to remove him to San Jose, where the advantage of the best medical aid could be obtained. He was taken to the home of his daughter, Mrs. J.B. GARAT, where he received all the attention that loving hands could give, but which proved of no avail.

At the time of his death, Mr. INDART had reached the ripe old age of 76 years. He was a native of France and had come to California via South America in 1851. On his arrival here he engaged in mining in Calaveras county with varied success. He subsequently turned his attention to the live stock business, and with 2 partners, John ETCHEVERRY, now deceased, and J. YREBERRY, they did a profitable business in the several mining camps of the State. The firm purchased cattle in the southern part of the State and drove them to the mines where they were sold for beef at a large profit. For several years the firm conducted a large ranch in the Kings River valley, and in 1873 transferred their business to Tres Pinos. The firm continued in existence till 1882 when by mutual consent it dissolved and the property interests were equally divided. Mr. INDART’s portion being 3600 acres of the Santa Anita rancho, choice farming and grazing land. Mr. INDART was married in 1863 in San Francisco to Miss Mary ERRICA, also a native of France, and to them were born 6 children, who, with their mother, are left to mourn the loss of a dear and faithful husband and father. The children are Mrs. J.B. GARAT, of San Jose; Miss Domie and John INDART, of Santa Anita, and Peter and John Peter INDART, of Reno, Nevada. The funeral will take place today from the Catholic Church, where services will be held at 11 o’clock.


In the May 30 issue:

The petition of Maria YNDART for the probate of the will of Juan YNDART [aka INDART], deceased, has been filed in the Clerk’s office. The real property consists of 1761 acres of the Santa Ana rancho adjoining the BOLADO estate, valued at $16,000; also 1769 acres of same rancho adjoining the town of Tres Pinos valued at $20,000… , all in San Benito county.

Description: General Transcription – Weekly Publication

“Sheep — From J. BOLADO, Esq., we learned some additional facts about sheep, which we herewith append as a kind of continuation of the stock article on the outside of this paper. Mr. BOLADO lives about 11 miles NE [actually SE] of Hollister, and near the Quien Sabe valley. He has a large ranch, well improved and stocked. His business is not so much raising stock as it is buying and selling sheep. He and his partner, Paul HUSSON, do a large butcher business in San Francisco. Mr. BOLADO attends to the buying department and ships from Tres Pinos from 500 to 600 sheep every week. He keeps on his ranch, however, from 2000 to 5000 head of sheep. Most of these are kept for their fleece, the fat wethers being sold after shearing time for mutton. Mr. B. thinks French merinos are the best sheep for this country. Their fleece is heavy and they have the size and requirements to be profitable… ”

1875-05-22: Newspaper story of a Visit to the New Hernandez Residence at Rancho Quien Sabe

San Benito Advance
22 May 1875

From Tres Pinos to the Quien Sabe Rancho

By invitation of a friend, we are induced to visit the residence of Señor HERNANDEZ, which is situated about 10 miles from Tres Pinos, in a southeasterly direction. Passing through the lands of Juan INDARTE on what is now declared a county road, we enter upon the domain lately owned by Señor BOLADO. On each side of our way we pass an extensive hill range over which the cattle roam in quiet retirement. After passing through several gates we catch a view of attractive fields of grain swayed into wavy motion by the zephyrs of the hills. Stately and brave old oaks stand like the sentinels of time forming groves of shade and furnishing a harbor for the little birds that whistle out their notes of melody and make “music in the air.” A farmhouse, outhouses, stables, barns, corrals, water tanks, and other improvements here represent the late home of Senor BOLADO. The house is well surrounded with shade trees and shrubbery and a well-cultivated garden is in the rear, where the vine, fig, cherry, peach, orange, cypress and blue gums grow and flourish. Water for irrigation and farm wants is conveyed from a mountain spring and the supply is about to be augmented by connection with a spring more distant. Springs about in every part of this extensive ranch. The wisdom of Señor BOLADO is exhibited in dividing the ranch into enclosed fields. All are fenced and all embrace a spring of water. The arrangement is an excellent one for the accommodation of stock. From our elevated point of observation, the eye ranges over a large part of the land recently purchased by Señor HERNANDEZ for $140,000. We learn that this gentleman contemplates moving his residence from Buena Vista ranch to this beautiful locality. He should also transfer the name of Buena Vista. We proceed on our way with our influential friend, whom we were fortunate in having with us, as he is one of the most expert gate openers and linguists in the country. We arrived before noon at HERNANDEZ’ ranch and were introduced to Jesus HERNANDEZ and Mr. MARSDEN, who treated us with gentlemanly consideration and courtesy. We had arrived at a busy time. 35 shearers were at work stripping the sheep of their fleeces and we looked upon the operation of shearing with some interest. Señor HERNANDEZ has but 1 shearing annually, so that his wool is always long and heavy–we were astonished to find some fleeces weigh 13 and 14 pounds each. Señor HERNANDEZ has directed his intelligent attention to the improvement of breeds and has among his immense flocks, through his experiments, a very superior stock. The general arrangement and management of the business is as perfect as possible and reflect credit upon Mr. HERNANDEZ and his assistants.

That as the land granted to Juan Miguel Anzar and Manuel Salvador Larios had not been segregated from the public domain and the external boundaries had not been fixed by the government of Mexico, the said Anzar & Larios could not make a partition of same as attempted by them in 1848 and that all of their proceedings for a partition before the land granted was finally located by the Mexican Government or its successor, the United States, were null and void and not binding either at law or in equity;

Plaintiffs (Bolado & Arques) and defendants (Anzar et. al., & MacDougall) are jointly seized in fee simple of said whole of said premesis described in said letters patent and hold possessions and enjoy the same as tenants in common;

That the plaintiffs as among themselves are seized in fee of said one undivided 1/2 part of all of said premises and hold the same according to their respective rights and interests therein but which rights and interests as between them are not now determined.

1869-07-26: MacDougall (Anzar et. al) Answer Bolado/Arques’ Suit Re: Partition

Monday, July 26, 1869 – Suit: Frederick A. MacDougall's (Anzar et. al.) answer and cross complaint:

That so much of plaintiff's (Joaquin Bolado & José G. Arques) prayer seeks to obtain decree of this court declaring the pretended partition a good and valid partition; or declaring plaintiffs to be exclusive owners of that part of the lands called Santa Ana; or as seems to establish the pretended dividing line set up in plaintiff's complaints, or compelling these defendants to make conveyances and assurances of title to plaintiffs to be denied.

MacDougall requests court to decree that MacDougall has an undivided 12th of lands granted by letters patent, and the said defendants Juan Francisco Anzar, Anatolio Anzar & Policronio Anzar each own 5 undivided 36ths; and said plaintiffs as among themselves to be the owners of one undivided half part thereof, and that the land be divided in an equitable and just manner.
