    LAND SHE LOVED LOSES NOTED NATIVE DAUGHTER

    Senora Francisca Escandon de Sanchez, descendent of one of California's oldest and wealthiest families, is dead.

    With her demise from old age at the home of one of her daughters, Mrs. J. M. Barker, at No. 1616 Bridge street, yesterday California lost one of its historic feminine notables, a woman who in her 74 years of life witnessed the evolution of the State from the days before its organization and admission to the Union to the present time.

    Senora Escandon was the widow of the late ex-State Senator Angel G. Escandon, one of the first Senators from what was then Ventura county, elected in 1874, two years after the county was created, and who divided it into Santa Barbara and Ventura.  She survived her husband a full quarter of a century and since his death has lived in Los Angeles.

    The senora was born on the Rancho Santa Clara, her father's great property, in what is now Ventura county, in 1838, eleven years before the State Constitution was framed and adopted, twelve years before California was admitted to statehood and thirty-four years before Ventura became a county.  Don Juan Sanchez, once owner of vast tracts of California, was her father.

    Requiem high mass will be said over her remains at St. Mary's Church at 10:30 o'clock tomorrow morning.  Interment will be at Calvary cemetery.

    Surviving Senora Escandon are Senora Anita Moreno de Sanchez, a sister, Mrs. Barker and Mrs. J. B. Sanchez, daughters, Alix Escandon of Salt Lake, and John Escandon, now in the East, sons.

    While the Escandon fortune at one time was enormous, it has dwindled until comparatively little is left.
