Biography of F. W. Staub
Fresno County, CA Biographies





F. W. STAUB, a vineyardist, residing in West Park colony, Fresno County, is a native of Missouri, born in Callaway County, in 1856. His father, J. Staab, emigrated to California in 1865 and settled in Santa Cruz County, where he bought 700 acres of land and carried on stock and dairy farming, keeping 100 head of horses and cattle.

The subject of our sketch was educated in the common schools at Santa Cruz, and lived at home until twenty two years of age. He then began teaming in and around Santa Cruz. He was married in that town in 1880, to Miss Edith L. Morton, a native of Minnesota. In 1885 they moved to Fresno and bought their present ranch of twenty acres, then wild land, never having been plowed. Mr. Staub at once began improving his property, built a house and barn, set out seventeen acres to Muscat vines and planted a small orchard. He keeps horses and cattle sufficient for ranch purposes, and the general appearance of this property indicates thrift and prosperity.

Mr. and Mrs. Staub have two children: Celess, born in 1881, and Mary Elizabeth, born in 1883.
