JOHN EDWARD McCARTY
A prosperous and up to date rancher of Riverside county, Mr. McCarty's sterling qualities and progressive spirit have established him as a citizen of the highest worth, widely respected throughout the community with which, since 1877, he has been closely associated: His father, Cornelius McCarty, who was born in Clark county, Ohio, June 12, 1834, removed with his family to Texas in 1870, remaining there fiver years and journeying thence to Los Angeles, Cal. Later he bought near Compton a tract. of one hundred acres, seventy five acres of which forms a portion of his estate today and which he farmed for a year subsequent to his purchase of a grain farm of eighty acres near Corona, which at that period had not yet been selected as a townsite. He continued his farming activities until his death, December 11, 1878. His son, John, later became manager of the property, which he continued to improve and develop until selling it. Thereafter he continued to make his home with his mother, who prior to her marriage (which occurred in Mason county, Ill., April 2, 1857) was Miss Annie Elizabeth Suman, born February 21, 1839, in Carlton, Ohio.

Born in Mason county, Ill., April 16, 1870, during the year of his birth John E. McCarty was taken by his parents to Texas, and from there to Los Angeles. There and in Compton he acquired his preliminary education, completing his schooling at the University of Southern California. For four years he had charge of the ranch at Compton, and in 1896 assumed charge of his present place near Corona, which he has conducted most successfully. For four years he has served as road overseer and has sixteen miles of road under his supervision.

Mr. McCarty is the seventh in order of birth. of ten children, of whom eight are living. The children are as follows: Alva R.; Dr. Isaac A., of Los Angeles; Rosa, the wife of F. C. Carrell, of Gardena; William Ward, of Arlington; Lora, the widow of H. F. McConnell, of Imperial County; John E.; George A., of Riversrde, a druggist; and D. Frank, a Methodist preacher, of Los Angeles. The two children deceased are Emma, who married W. E. Bernard and died in Texas, and Lela, who died when about five years old. John E. has always been the chief comfort of his widowed mother, between whom and himself there exists a strong bond of sympathy and affection. He is a Republican, broad minded and generous, and despite his busy life has ever found time to lend practical aid to causes worthy of his support.
