J. A. DURNAL. - No one is better known in the Tehachapi valley as a stock man than the subject of this brief sketch. He came to California in 1872, and to Tehachapi the following year. He is a native of Conway County, Arkansas, born May 2, 1850, and thus far his life has been devoted to raising cattle, in which business he has been most successful. He and his partner, H. Spencer, Esq., of Tehachapi, own a mountain range of about 12,000 acres, upon which they graze an average of 1,200 head of cattle.

In 1876 Mr. Durnal was married toe Miss Lucinda, daughter of the venerable W. C. Wiggins, of Old Tehachapi, and their union has been blessed with six children.
