Jepson Field Book volume 66 page 160
Civil War Days -cf. ballads and war verses of Francis Orray Ticknor, Dict. Am. Biog. 18:525. -During Civil War days Vaca Valley was overwhelmingly Southern in its population make up. The Democratic party always won at the local election. Then the political complexion changed about 1892 and the Republicans were in a slight majority. At the national election, Nov. 5, 1940, Roosevelt polled 578, Wilkie 505.  -Cont. from p. 143 at bottom: This great blow with clear skies was followed by another North Wind with cloudy skies, spitting intermittent rain and continued cold. This phase, too, is also reminding remembrance of childhood.  -Foliage for the oxen. Cato, De Agricultura, p. 19. ::::::::: Country School Drove to Vaca Valley about Apr. 7 ? _36 on a botanizing trip, incidentally called on the Harbisons. Mrs. Harbison remembers vaguely about the school at Jewett Bridge in early days. She thinks there was a school and a church, and that they, or one of them, stood on the corner opposite the old Oiler house. She spoke of our Anderson as being a famous mare in the school in that early day. In discussing the neighborhood, Mrs. Harbison made one curious answer to a query of mine, and yet quite fitting for that early day. She said of a certain family: _Oh, they were too far over!_ meaning that they lived beyond reach of neighborhood knowledge, that is a mile or so south of grandpapa Hawkin_s place, which is within an air mile or mile and a half
