On Saturday, September 26, 2009, I had the opportunity to participate in the 2009 Livin Hisory Tour at Angelus-Rosedale Cemetery. I portrayed Remi Nadeau, a prominant figure in Los Angeles history.

Here's a transcript of my porrtrayal. . .

Good Morning Everyone! My name is Remi Nadeau. Uncle Rem if you like.

If my name sounds familiar to you, it’s probably my grandfather you’re thinking of. That Remi Nadeau made is fame and fortune here in Los Angeles hauling borax from the Cerro Gordo Mine in Death Valley to Los Angeles. Do any of you remember the old boxes of Borax Soap? What was the logo? That’s righ! The 20 Mule Team. That was grandpa’s idea. Each team was comprised of 18 mules, 2 horses, and 4 wagons. Each train could haul 20 to 30 tons on borax.

My grandfather wisely reinvested his money in land. Lots of it. Three-thousand, two hundred, and fifty acres! Some say that he was the holder of the largest contiguous tract of land in Southern California held by any private individual. On some of his land he planted grapes. And at one time he had the largest winery in Southern California, producing 200,000 gallons of wine a day.

His name might also be familiar from the famous Nadeau hotel downtown. You’d recognize it better today as the site of the Los Angeles Times Mirror Square building. My grandfather met a lot of opposition when building his hotel, because he wanted to build a four-story building, rather than the customary two. He did build his hotel, and installed California’s first elevator.

But all that is his story.

There’s another famous Remi Nadeau. This one is an author. You might have read the book “The Water Seekers,” about the early water wars here in Los Angeles. One of his other books is still in print today. It’s called “Ghost Towns and Mining Camps of California.”

I’m not him either. That’s my nephew.

My Grandfather is buried here at Rosedale, up on the hill behind me. My nephew you won’t find here because, like all of you, he’s still amongst the living.

Growing up in the shadow of someone famous like my grandfather, whom I was named after, gave me the impetus, the drive, to make a name for myself in my own right. And, that’s what I did. For the last 40 years of my life I was a rancher in Soledad Canyon, which at the time was considered part of Saugus.

Now I was born I 1867 in Montana. At the age of just one year old I was brought around the Horn to Los Angeles. Here I grew up on my grandfather’s rancho. During that time I developed my love of animals and life on a ranch.

I remember my first job. I was a freighter, just like my grandfather. I hauled wood from the eucalyptus groves here in the basin to the brick kilns in Los Angeles. The eucalyptus groves were an enterprise started by my father Joseph and Mr. Phineas Banning. You may have heard of him as well. At other times in my life I was co-owner of a furniture store, and a builder and a contractor. I really earned my real estate in real estate. Sometimes we Nadeau’s could be cash poor, but we were always land rich. I helped subdivide and sell my grandfather’s vast land holdings. Some would say that by age of 40 I had already earned my prominence in society.

After my father died in 1908, I earned my inheritance and I was finally able to do what I had always wanted – build my own ranch. And, so I bought the land and moved up to Soledad Canyon.

My ranch adjoined the ranch of Mr. Jon Mitchell. We quickly struck up a friendship and formed a partnership in the cattle raising industry. It was a partnership that would last until the day I died. Together we purchased the old Cuneo farm in the canyon and expanded our lands. The yearly cattle round-ups at the Nadeau-Mitchell ranch were an event not to be missed. It seemed the whole Santa Clarita Valley turned out for it.

Now, I was a bit of an experimenter on the ranch. When Luther Burbank came out with his Spineless Cactus for stock feed, I decided to give it a try and plated over 100 acres of it. Have you ever heard of cactus fed beef? I didn’t think so. Obviously, it didn’t work out so well. Another time I bought Arabian horses and tried horse breeding.

As I mentioned, I also loved animals. I always had a few ranch dogs around; mostly Shepherd mixes. But I had one very special dog. His name was Goofus. Good name for a dog, don’t you think? He was my best friend right up until the end. I had a special horse, named Chappo, that all the Nadeau children used to ride. He outlived me be 37 years!

Then in 1927 I finally had the opportunity to do what I always wanted to do. I built a deer farm and preserve. Now, that sounds exactly what it is – part farm and part preserve. Some of the deer we raised for venison, but a certain percentage I allowed to roam free. It was my hope that these deer would repopulate the grasslands and forests of California.

I spent $40,000 setting up the deer farm in Canyon Country. I imported deer from Central Europe and Central America. I brought in mule deer

Francis Marion Conley

Francis Marion Conley

Co. E, 12th KS. Infantry
The La Cygne Weekly Journal, Friday, June 28, 1907, Pg 5

In Memoriam.

Francis Marion Conley was born in Indiana March 28, 1840 and departed this life at his home in La Cygne, Kansas June 25, 1907, aged 67 years, 2 months and 27 days. On the 15th day of May 1862 in the bonds of Holy Matrimony to Miss Vienna Mason. To this union was born ten children, three of whom with the wife survive him and mourn his departure to the Spirit World.

On August 18, 1862, just sixty three days after their wedding day, Mr. Conley in response to his country’s call for brave men offered himself as a volunteer and was accepted and enlisted in Company E of the 12 Kansas Infantry, and served his country almost three years, receiving a honorable discharge at Little Rock June 13, 1865.

After the close of the war he returned to his Kansas home where by honesty, industry and good management he has acquired some very desirable property. For the last fifteen years he has been identified with the business interests of La Cygne, conducting very successfully a furniture store. He also held many city and county offices proving himself worthy of the confidence placed in him by his fellowmen. But it was in his judicial administration that he out-shown all his other gifts. He seemed especially qualified for that special work, hence he was commonly spoke of as “Judge”. His apprehensions were very rapid; his development of truth was luminous as its path; his knowledge appeared intuitive, and he, by a single glance, and with as much facility as the eye of the eagle passing over the landscape, surveyed the whole field on controversy—saw in what way the truth might be most successfully defended and how error must be approached. In coming into his presence where he sat as the Judge, oppressed humanity felt a secret rapture, and the heart of the innocent leaped for joy.

Wherever he was—it mattered not in that sphere he moved—the friendless had a friend, the fatherless had a father, the poor man though unable to reward his kindness, found an advocate. It was when the rich oppressed the poor—when the powerful menaced the defenseless, when truth was disregarded or the eternal principles of Justice violated it was on these occasions that he exercised all his strength, and gave him the force and authority of a prophet.

As a patriot, his integrity blessed the scrutiny of inquisition; whose manly virtue never shaped itself to circumstances; who stood amid the varying tides of party, firm like the rock which far from land lifts its majestic top above the waves and remains unshaken by the storms which agitate the ocean.

As a friend, he was true to his promise, his bosom was transparent and deep in the bottom of his heart was rooted every tender and sympathetic virtue. He made it a rule of his life to be upright, clean and pure in all his transactions with his fellowmen.

He has spent more than thirty years in the Church of God. And few men have exercised greater faith in God than did Mr. Conley. He took God at his word and expected the fulfillment of that word. He was not disappointed. Now his illuminated spirit still whispers from heaven with well known eloquence the solemn admonition, “Mortals hastening to the tomb and once the companions of my pilgrimage, take warning, and avoid my errors. Cultivate the virtues I have recommended. Follow the God I have followed. Live for immortality; and would you recite anything from the final dissolution lay it up with God. Thus speaks, me thinks our deceased benefactor. For thus he acted during life. And this more than any other sheds glory on his character. Everything else death effaces. Religion alone abided with him in his
