Candidate Biography:

1849: Postmaster, City of Vernon (not the one in Los Angeles Co.)


  • State Senator Gilbert A. Grant (described in his obituary as "a distinguished citizen of San Francisco") arrived in California in 1849, so he doesn't appear to have been the same person as Assemblyman G. A. Grant, who represented Sacramento in the first legislature.
