FRANK A. SANDERS
A native of California, his birth having occurred in Los Angeles (now Orange) county, August 29, 1873, Mr. Sanders is one of the most up to date and successful farmers of Riverside county, his thirty five acre alfalfa and potato ranch being among the most productive and highly improved in the San Jacinto section. The parents of Mr. Sanders, A. J. and Elizabeth (McPherson) Sanders, are now residents of Orange, Orange county.

Upon completion of his education in the public schools Mr. Sanders engaged in teaming, and at the age of twenty four removed to Riverside county, where he remained three years engaged in dry farming with his brother. From there he went to Orange county, where he followed teaming and farming. In 1906, after having surveyed many choice sections in the state, he purchased a place in San Jacinto, Riverside county, and in 1909 bought the thirty five acre tract upon which he now resides and upon which he has made all improvements, putting down a well of one hundred and sixteen inch capacity.

February 10, 1896, Mr. Sanders married in Orange Miss Louie F. Brown, who accompanied her parents from her native state, Iowa, to Orange county, Cal., in 1892. Her father, W. L. Brown, a native of Indiana, is a Civil war veteran, and he and his wife, formerly Miss Carrie Willis, are residents of Hemet, Cal. Mr. and Mrs. Sanders have two children, both of whom attend public school: Ada C., born in December, 1899, and Donald M., whose birth occurred in June, 1902.

A member of no fraternal organization, Mr. Sanders is nevertheless deeply interested in the welfare of his fellowmen, and is always prompt to lend his assistance in all movements pertaining to the advancement of the municipality in which he lives, his progressive spirit and kindly consideration for others having won the high regard of his associates. Thoroughly modern in his methods. he has achieved gratifying success in his present industri, which includes the raising of alfalfa and potatoes. A Republican, intelligently interested in both civic and national political developments, Mr. Sanders has never sought office, though ever prompt in his support of worthy candidates.
