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.

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.

That the said Defendants as among themselves are seized in fee of the one undivided half &c &c.

That said Plaintiffs as among themselves are entitled to have a half part of said premises quantity and quality relatively considered, set apart to them in severalty and that said Defendant as among themselves are entitled to have a half &c;

That commissioners should be appointed to make partition; that such commissioners should, if the same can be equitably done, set apart to Plaintiffs' and Defendant's lands embracing their respective improvements; let an interlocutory decree be drawn accordingly.

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.
