This is a wonderful article about the foundation of a community that grew into what became Orange County. My father worked on the Bastanchury Ranch, he was a brother in law to Cuca Morales. We always knew about the ranch from his stories and I am happy to see my sweet cousin featured in this article. She is our family historian since she knew and lived with my Aunt and Uncle on the ranch. @J1641 -You sadly do not have your own history of family to know how proud we are of our own who migrated here to work and build a future. These were not people who took advantage, they had pride in what they did, they never used government aid of any kind. My parents owned their own property, paid taxes and voted, just like any other citizen who deserves what hard work and taught their children the very same.
