Biography of C. A. Piner
Lake County, CA Biographies





PINER, C. A. Was born in Callaway County, Missouri, December 6, 1827. When about ten years of age his parents moved to Dade County, that State, where they resided until 1849, when they concluded to visit the land of gold, and accordingly set sail in a "prairie schooner," and after a tedious journey across the plains arrived at Lassen Ranch October 6th of the above year. The subject of this sketch engaged at once in mining, which he followed for one year; then went to Sonoma County and engaged in dairying near Santa Rosa until 1858, when, on account of failing health, he moved to Mendocino County and settled about three miles south from Ukiah. Here he followed farming and stock raising until 1861, when he came to Lake County and prosecuted his former occupation for about eight years, just west from Kelseyville. He then settled on his present place, consisting of two hundred and forty acres, located about one mile from Kelseyville, at the foot of Uncle Sam Mountain, where he is engaged in dairying and wool growing. Mr. Piner married, March 2, 1848, Miss Sarah A. Hand, a native of Tennessee. By this union they have nine living children: George W., Eliza J., Sarah C. Mary E., Charles S., John S., Matilda L., William H. and Rosie M. They have lost one, Anna V.
