1891 Patrons of Historical Atlas


 

Patron’s List extracted from the “Historical Atlas Map of Fresno County,” (Tulare, CA: Thompson, 1891). This listing includes only those with a future Madera County post office.

 

Under Residence some locations are given as Section, Township, and Range from the Mount Diablo Baseline. The first column of dates is the year the person reported arriving in California and the second when they settled in Fresno County (portion that became Madera County in 1893).
