    Notes:

    There are three men most responsible for the development of the Crescenta-Canada Valley: Dr. Jacob Lanterman, Dr. Benjamin Briggs, and Senator Frank P. Flint.

    DR. BENJAMIN BRIGGS

    Benjamin Bennett Briggs was in terrible shape when he arrived here in 1881. Years earlier he?d been shot through the lung -- the bullet still lodged in his chest, leaving him in constant pain. He was among the very first to head west for the Gold Rush, leaving the East Coast in March of 1849.

    Near Salt Lake City, he and his brothers befriended some local Indians. While showing off their marksmanship, the 22-year-old accidentally stepped in front of his brother?s target.

    The bullet ripped through his right lung and imbedded in his spine, the tip just visible under the skin. His journal entry for the day reveals a stoic personality. After describing the terrain and location he merely adds, ?Got accidentally wounded.?

    In keeping with the medical practice of the time, he was bled. This complicated his condition, producing terrible sweats, fevers and chills. After a eight days the caravan moved on, leaving his brothers to tend to him.

    Fearing they wouldn?t make the Sierras by winter, the Briggs brothers had no choice but to continue west and if need be bury him along the way. When they arrived in California, to their utter amazement, young Benjamin stood up.

    His brothers worked the gold mines while he recuperated. With little to do but stare at the ground -- he became convinced that California?s soil would be perfect for growing citrus.

    After some serious cajoling, he persuaded his brothers to collect the proper cuttings. This required not only the arduous journey back to the east coast -- but ocean voyages to South America and Spain, the latter in which to learn the raisin business.

    Through painful trial and error -- and years of perseverance -- the Briggs brothers pioneered California?s fruit industry -- the first to plant citrus in the Sacramento Valley. George Briggs became one of the state?s first millionaires.

    The Mission Padres had experimented with fruit growing before, but never on a large scale. The Briggs ranch in Santa Paula was so vast that visitors were cautioned to carry guns as flares since many a worker got lost overnight in the endless maze of fruit trees.

    But a cloud followed young Benjamin. His wife Abby died of tuberculosis. Heart-broken and still suffering from his own lung injury, he abandoned the fruit industry for medicine.

    He became obsessed with finding a cure for tuberculosis and other lung diseases. Over the years he earned seven medical degrees including one from the Heidelberg Academy in Germany which at the time led the world in tuberculosis research.

    Despite a successful medical practice in Indiana, Brigg?s longed for a healthier climate. With his new bride (his wife?s sister) and his daughter Irene, he traveled extensively throughout Europe and America in search of the perfect climate. He found it in Rancho La Canada.

    Tall, angular and bearded, Briggs reminded locals of the late President Lincoln and they took to calling him Old Abe. After moving here, Brigg?s health immediately improved.

    Brigg?s purchased the entire western half of Rancho La Canada from Lanterman and Williams. He had the land surveyed and divided into ten-acre lots for sale as ranches. This included the future site of Montrose.

    From his perch atop Pickens canyon, the mountains made crescent shapes -- so he named the area La Crescenta. Before that it had been called simply ?The Big Rocks?.

    Brigg?s started the first school in the valley, the first town center, the first church, the first public park, and the first full-time medical practice. He also planted thousands and thousands of trees.

    Briggs? daughter Irene had married the Reverend Lawrence Ward. For over 20 years, they were missionaries in the Islamic country of Persia, part of modern-day Iran. While on furlough, Briggs asked them start the first church in the valley. They formed the First Presbyterian church in Dr. Brigg?s home.

    The church would later move to this cement structure on Foothill. A rare commodity in those days, Brigg?s bought the cement after it had been used as ballast on a ship from Germany. It was said to be the first cement structure in all of Southern California. The church would eventually move to its present location on Montrose Avenue.

    Briggs accomplished all this in less than 12 years. When he was 66 he decided to have the bullet removed from his chest. It had been lodged against his spine for 44 years. Shortly after doctors extracted the lead ball, Benjamin Briggs died.

    Col. Pickens and Dr. Briggs lived on the same piece of land for roughly the same amount of time -- during which the former chopped down an entire forest, damned up the canyon and forced others to pay him for the water -- while the latter planted thousands of trees, established a new town, and paved the way for future generations to move here.

    All that honors the memory of this extraordinary man is the name of the street which once led up to his home.

    Notes:

    JOSEPH W. BRIGGS, deceased. The subject of this sketch was born in New York in 1832. He was the son of Thomas Briggs, of New York. In his childhood his father removed to Medina County, Ohio, where our subject was reared and schooled, obtaining such education as the schools of that date afforded. He early learned the details of the work on his father's farm in assisting in its management.

    He made the overland journey to California, and upon his arrival joined his brother, who resided near Marysville, the two entering into extensive fruit-cultivation, thus becoming pioneers of that industry in this State. He continued in k until 1854, when he returned to Ohio, and there married, in that year, Miss Mary J. Oldes, the daughter of Albert and Mary (Bennett) Oldes, who resided in Medina County, Ohio. After a two years' stay in Ohio, he went to Franklin County, Kansas, where he purchased land and established himself as a farmer and stock-raiser. There he made his home for several years, in fact until, in 1862, he returned to this State, and, with his brother, John G., and his brother-in-law, Edward Haskell, entered largely into fruit-culture. His family joined him in his new home in 1863. Mr. Briggs eventually bought out the interests of his partners, and for a time managed these orchards, of hundreds of acres in extent, without other assistance than that of hired help. In 1873 he sold out these interests and came to Santa Clara County, where he bought a tract of 120 acres on the Trimble road, on Coyote Creek, in the Midway School District. He immediately began the work of planting extensive orchards and small-fruit vines, and succeeded before his death in producing a splendid farm, upon which his widow now resides. Fifty acres were devoted to the raising of plums and prunes, twenty acres to pears, ten acres to apples, twelve acres to cherries, and the remainder to pasturage. Six acres of raspberries, and five of strawberries, were cultivated among the fruit-trees. Plenty of water is supplied by five artesian wells, each of which furnishes an average flow of water. These lands, being in a high state of cultivation and very productive, testify to Mr. Briggs' skill in horticulture. In addition to the supervision of this large farm, Mr. Briggs engaged largely in fruit-raising near Visalia, purchasing in 1881, 200 acres of land. His son, Frank T., bought 160 acres near this property, and in 1885 Mr. Briggs also acquired that tract by purchase. His design was the conversion of the whole into orchards, but his plans were destroyed by the hand of death, which occurred April 19, 1887.

    He left three children: Frank T., married and living in San Francisco ; John G., who married Miss Lizzie Adams, of Alviso, now a resident of San Jose; and Albert L., residing on the old homestead. He also left, besides a devoted family, f friends, by whom his loss was deeply felt. He was a man of great strength of character, of untiring energy, as the magnitude of his enterprises proves. He was well versed in the business affairs of life, and was thus able to bring to a successful issue his many plans.

    His worth in social circles was thoroughly appreciated, and by his death many secret organizations mourned the loss of a most useful member. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity, being a Knight Templar, and was also connected with tcan Legion of Honor, Chosen Friends, Knights of Honor, and Ancient Order of United Workmen.

Generation: 4

  1. 33.  George Gregg Crane Descendancy chart to this point (23.Louisa3, 6.Thomas2, 1.Dyer1) was born on 7 Jul 1835 in Sharon, Medina Co., Ohio, USA.

    Notes:

    In pursuit of that occupation to which he became accustomed in
    earliest youth in Ohio, Mr. Crane, in 1883, settled in Ventura County,
    where he has realized many of his ambitious expectations. He was born
    in Sharon Township, Medina County, Ohio, July 7, 1835. His paternal
    ancestors were all born and reared in or near Deighton, Mass., where
    the original ancestor, from England, one Henry Crane, settled in 1654.
    On the maternal side, Louisa (Briggs) Crane was born in Ontario
    County, N. Y., in 1815, a daughter of Thomas Briggs, also a native of
    Massachusetts. Her brother, George G. Briggs, the pioneer fruit man of
    California, in 1861 became the owner of the Rancho Santa Paula y
    Saticoy, in Ventura County, and said rancho was subdivided and thrown
    open for settlement by him. In 1855 Mr. Crane came to California and
    assisted his uncle, George G. Briggs, in putting out two hundred acres
    of orchard, in addition to the already large orchard then just
    bearing, near Marysville. He also assisted him in putting out an
    orchard of one hundred acres near Oroville, and one of two hundred
    acres on the Sacramento river near Knights Landing. Remaining in
    California something over three years, he then returned to his native
    place in Ohio, married and purchased a farm upon which he resided for
    ten years, when, selling his farm, he removed to Cass county, Mo. Six
    years later he removed to Denver, Colo., where he engaged in the
    wholesale fruit business, shipping from forty to fifty carloads a year
    from Marysville and Sacramento.
    The drought in California of 1877 decided him to quit the fruit
    business and go to the Black Hills of Dakota, the then new mining
    region. There, in company with others, he was successful in locating
    and developing what is known as the Trojan group of mines, near
    Deadwood, which he and his partners sold in 1883 for $10o,000. In the
    same year he removed with his family to Saticoy, Ventura County,
    purchased and settled upon the ranch he now (1902) occupies. This land
    was at once utilized for the raising of lima beans and the setting out
    of walnut trees. Today there is a fine bearing orchard of Santa
    Barbara soft shell walnuts covering fifty acres. Some apricots also
    are raised on the ranch.
    No one has shown more enthusiasm than Mr. Crane in promoting the
    interests of his neighborhood. To further the cause of the walnut
    growers he assisted in the organization of the Saticoy Walnut Growers'
    Association. He was one of tile first stockholders in the People's
    Lumber Company, and has also been vitally interested in the subject of
    water supply. In addition to his home ranch he owns eighty acres of
    land west of Pasadena, which can be developed into grape land.
    Although a Democrat in politics and a stanch upholder of his party, he
    has never cared for office and has never been a candidate but once,
    when he was nominated for supervisor. His kindly and agreeable
    personality has won for him many friends throughout Ventura county. In
    1859 he married Adalina Huntley, who was born in Granger township,
    Medina County, Ohio, in 1836. They are the parents of two children,
    namely: Amy, who is the wife of E. E. Huntley, of Saticoy; and Abbie,
    wife of L. W. Andrews, an attorney of Los Angeles.

    Notes:

    JOHN G. BRIGGS, was born in Franklin County, Kansas, December 3, 1858. He is the son of Joseph W. Briggs (whose sketch appears in this connection) and Mary J. (Oldes) Briggs, a native of Ohio. When but five years of age he was brought by his parents to this State. During his youthful days, when not in school, he was employed in his father's large orchards, and thus at an early age he had become familiar with all the details of orchard culture. In his boyhood, his father had the care of
    extensive fruit interests near Marysville, but in 1873 he came to this county and purchased 120 acres of land near the Trimble road. He eventually improved 100 acres of this tract, setting that portion to fruit-trees. In this work he was most ably assisted by our subject, who, as young as he was, managed this extensive property, and in time came to have sole control of it, as for many years previous to his death, in 1887, his father was occupied in the care of his large interests near Visalia.

    This magnificent orchard contains about 10,000 trees, and is known far and wide as one of the finest and most productive in the county. This is due to Mr. Briggs' thorough, practical knowledge of the business to which he was trained, ande and attention which he has devoted to the production of these telling results. Mr. Briggs is now living at San Jose, where he is engaged in settling the affairs of his father's extensive estate.

    In 1882 he was united in marriage with Miss Lizzie Adams, the daughter of William Francis and Mary Ann Adams, who were natives and residents of England. Mr. and Mrs. Briggs have one daughter, Edith Violet.
