W. C. JAMISON, a rancher of Santa Ynez, was born in Redwood, Santa Clara County, December 25, 1860. His father,
T. B. Jamison, is a native of Maryland, and came across the plains to California in 1854, and again in 1859, with
his family, settling in Santa Clara County. In 1865 he was a pioneer to Salinas City, Monterey County, and built
the first house. In 1872 he moved to Guadalupe, being among the first to enter that valley. W. C. Jamison lived
at home during the several changes of the family, and in 1882 they again broke up; at the opening of the Santa
Ynez went there and established themselves. He rents about 680 acres of land from the Santa Ynez Improvement Company,
which he cultivates to wheat and barley, principally grain. This year (1890), the hay crop being short, he is cutting
everything for hay; will cut about 275 tons and 150 acres for grain. He uses all heavy machinery, and presses hay
in the field.
Mr. Jamison was married at Santa Ynez, December 18, 1889, to Miss Alice B. Mills, a native of California.
