Jehu Mapson [1845-1932]

Jehu Mapson was born in Brinkworth, Wiltshire, England to Robert & Ann (Thrush) Mapson, the second of seven children. As a young boy he moved with his family to the United States, settling first in Cambria, WI and later Winnebago, MN.

After the death of his first wife, Henrietta, he remarried to Kate Sharp and they eventually settled in California where Jehu was a prolific farmer, known for his large citrus groves.

He remained in the San Diego area until his death at age 86.
