Description
Title abstract for lot on north side of Vallejo Street between Gough and Franklin Streets, San Francisco
Background
Amariah Wilson was born in Ohio, came west with his family to Oregon in 1844, and was living in San Francisco by the end of 1847. He was granted several lots in 1848, but he and his family moved to Texas early in 1850, and he had sold the properties by 1853. Col. Jonathan D. Stevenson was recruited from New York by Secretary of War Marcy to lead a military force to California for service in the Mexican War, but arrived by ship too late for service (April 1847); he settled in San Francisco and was active in politics. John Evans was proprietor of Spring Valley Bath House in San Francisco, on the Presidio road. Lyman I. Mowry was a San Francisco attorney who organized a San Francisco steamship company.
