FRANK J. PEACOCK. - One of the most able, progressive and enterprising business men of Imperial County is Frank
J. Peacock, proprietor of the Arrowhead Creamery, which was originally established in 1905. He has been actively
and successfully identified with the business interests of the county for many years, and is recognized today as
the pioneer creamery man of the San Joaquin Valley, and one of the foremost creamery men of southern California.
Mr. Peacock erected the first creamery in the San Joaquin Valley in 1895. He also put up the first creamery in
Kings County. He markets his own products and does a wholesale business at 808 E. Fifth Street, Los Angeles, and
San Bernardino, California. Mr. Peacock was born in Napa County, March 20, 1872, a son of Joseph and Hannah Peacock.
He received his education in the public schools and one of the business colleges of California. At the age of twenty
one he was elected to the office of County Tax Collector of Kings County, which office he held for eight years,
during which time he became interested in the creamery business, and erected the creamery in Kings County in 1895.
In 1905 Mr. Peacock organized the first National Bank of Lemoore, Kings County, California, and served as president
of that institution until 1908, when he removed to San Bernardino and established the creamery in that city, and
also in El Centro, California. Fraternally, he is a member of the B. P. O. E. Mr. Peacock has large ranch holdings
and is an extensive grower of cotton, alfalfa and corn. In his political views he is a Republican but can always
be counted upon to cast his vote for the man, irrespective of party. He was married in San Bernardino, February
4th, 1909, to Miss Alberta Cannon, of Ohio. Mr. Peacock stands today a forceful factor in the improvement of business
conditions of El Centro and southern California. The Arrowhead creameries manufacture casein, which is utilized
