Biography

Louis F. Stabell came to San Joaquin County (Calif.) from Germany (1890). He settled on Bouldin Island, where he leased farmland until he was able to afford land of his own. At Terminous, site of an important cannery across Potato Slough from Bouldin Island, Stabell met and married French immigrant, Marie Goumand (1894). To the couple were born two children, Viola Alice (b. 1896) and Paul Louis (1900-1990), both of whom were raised in the San Joaquin Delta region. In 1918 Louis Stabell bought land on the Mokelumne River near Clements that had once belonged to Judge David Terry. Here the family lived and farmed until 1957.

Scope and Content

The Stabell family papers consists of 20th c. personal and land documents and a collection of manuscript reminiscences by Paul L. Stabell about life in the Delta and at Clements during the early years of the present century.
