About Cyrus Baldwin Rawson

Photo ref.: 1858 Record of purchase, by Cyrus B. Rawson, of 160 acres of land at the peak [Meridian] of Mt. Diablo, in Contra Costa County of the eastern San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California. (famous geological site in northern California, the Meridian now used as a major survey point for lands in California and Nevada.).

Cyrus B. Rawson and his brother Hiram became large scale California real estate investors .

Rancho Niguel, was owned by Cyrus B. Rawson, and Lewis Moulton leased 19,000 acres from Mr. Rawson in 1884. He later formed a partnership with Jean Pierre Daguerre, and began raising sheep, cattle and dry-farming. The successful partnership made it possible for Moulton and Daguerre to purchase the land in 1895. < >

"The Rawson brothers, Cyrus and Hiram, were the original owners of all the land that became the [Lewis Fenno] Moulton ranch." REF.: < >, LAGUNA BEACH HISTORY.
