EUGENE L. DEARBORN.
E. L. Dearborn, secretary and manager of the Solano County Abstract Co. of Fairfield, secretary of the board of
trustees of the Armijo high school district and for years a factor in the general affairs of the county seat town,
one of Fairfield's dependable citizens, is a native son of California and his interests have ever centered here.
Mr. Dearborn was born in the city of San Francisco, November 20, 1881, and is a son of Henry and Lillie (Hobbs)
Dearborn, both natives of the state of Maine, the former born in the city of Bangor and the latter in Belfast.
They are now living in San Mateo county, where they have had their home for many years. Henry Dearborn has been
a resident of California since the year 1870 and thus properly may be accounted one of the "old settlers"
of the state.
Reared in San Mateo county, to which place his parents had moved when he was but a child, E. L. Dearborn received
his schooling in the schools of that county and remained there until in 1907, when he became employed in the operations
of the Solano County Abstract Co. at Fairfield, which town has since been his home. In October, 1916, he purchased
the interest of James N. Watson, founder of that company, and accepted the office of secretary and general manager
of the same and has since been serving in that capacity, one of the best known title men in this section of the
state and one of the first to introduce title insurance in the small counties. This company was established in
1900 by Mr. Watson, who opened the first set of abstract books opened in Solano county, and it thus is recognized
as the pioneer concern of its line in this county. In 1907 the present company was incorporated. Ever since he
became a citizen of Fairfield Mr. Dearborn has taken an earnest and intelligent interest in the general affairs
of that city and has been particularly active in his efforts along the lines of the promotion of the interests
of the local schools. For eight years he served as a member of the board of trustees of the grammar school.
In 1910 E. L. Dearborn was united in marriage to Miss Jean Ruth Fix, a native daughter of Solano county, born at
Birds Landing, daughter of Mrs. Bessie Fix, and they have one child, a son, Robert L. Dearborn, born in 1911. Mr.
Dearborn is a Scottish Rite Mason, affiliated with the consistory at Oakland, and is a past master of Suisun Lodge
No. 55, Free and Accepted Masons.
