According to "Ingersoll's Century Annals of San Bernardino County, 1769-1904," California State Library, Sacramento, pages 717 and 718, Clyde Herbert Darrow owned 15 acres one mile east of Bloomington, San Bernardino County, California, planted in peaches, apricots, and oranges. Clyde moved to Rialto in 1887. He and his brother-in-law, Ezra Graft, painted the first buildings in town.
The following is from "My Memories of World War One," by Violet Page World who was born 3 March 1907. The article was published on pages 33-35 in "The Sholin/ World Family History Book 1993, edited and compiled by Virginia Sholin Smallwood. The part dealing with her grandparents, Clyde and Cora Darrow, was tacked onto the end of Violet World's article. "Grandma and Grandpa Darrow owned a farm and orange grove in Bloomington, California.
They traded off for two homes in Redlands that were heavily mortgaged and a little cash. They then homesteaded in Columbus, New mexico, where he farmed and trapped for a living. They stayed until Granpa had to leave that high altitude. Grandma died sometime later in Columbus and was buried in New Mexico. Grandma was in her seventies."
After asking Violet to elaborate on her story, she wrote, "My grandfather, Clyde Herbert Darrow, owned three homes: two in Redlands and his adobe home in Columbus, New Mexico. The only live town left is Deming, New Mexico. Columbus now is a state park monument to the war with Mexico - in about 1914. When we went to Grandpa's house it was 246 Chestnut Avenue, Redlands, CA. Grandpa came back to Redlands to get a job to take back some money to New Mexico. There was not work there. Uncle Fred [Darrow] with his wife and nine children were starving. Uncle Fred never left his farm. They went into partnership with their homestead and farm."
