    Notes 
    • The William Gordon I am related to is the son of John Gordon & Mary Elizabeth Art. He was born Sept 1801 in Adams County, Ohio. He married Juana Maria Lucero in New Mexico, Traveled to CA, obtained a Mexican Land Grant, and is known as the first white settler of Yolo County.
      He had a son Thomas, but I don't think the middle name was Lake. I have more info at home. I am at work right now. I will pull it together when I get home, and send you. I have to confess, that I haven't updated the GED file I created for several years. Anyway, the history of Wm Gordon is very interesting. He supplied the pack mules that rescued the Donner Party, had a neice marry Lindsay Carson, brother of the famous Kit Carson. One of his daughters was married by Capt. John Sutter of California Gold fame.
