LARGE LAND OWNERS OF 1876

        A business directory of Alameda County for this day would require a book of considerable size. Not so, however, for 1876, fifty-two years ago. The author has been fortunate to discover an old business directory of 1876, arranged by townships. It contains the names of many prominent pioneers of the county whose names are closely connected with the earlier modern history of the county, and many of whom have descendants still residing here. This directory shows when these early pioneers came to the state and to the county, and also gives the number of acres owned by those engaged in farming. Some of the largest land owners in Oakland township were Francisco Galindo, with 3,400 acres; Sheriff H. N. Morse, 1,011 acres; J. H. McCourtney, 300 acres; S. E.
