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.
