Amberson Brandon, formerly one of the large ranchers of the Le Grand vicinity, more recently a resident of Stockton, died yesterday afternoon at 5 o'clock.

Mr. Brandon was a native of Jefferson County, Wisconsin, where he was born August 31, 1845. His earliest years, however, were spent on an Ohio farm. In 1851, at the age of six years, he crossed the plains for California when the family moved to El Dorado county, this state, to launch into the gold mining industry which was then at a feverish height.

When 18 years of age Mr. Brandon left the home in El Dorado to enlist with Company M, First California Regulars, and served three years in Arizona and New Mexico fighting the Indians. He was appointed sergeant and honorably discharged from service at Fort Seldom, N.M. in 1866. At the close of his military career he returned to California and turned his attention to teaming and conducting a sawmill in Amador county, and later in Merced and Stanislaus counties where he later began farming. He moved to Merced in 1884 first renting the land of the 3,900 acre ranch near Le Grand which he later purchased.

Mr. Brandon was married in 1868 to Julia Misenheimer, and of the union eleven children were born as follows: Susan wife of J. T. Flanagan; Bernice, wife of E. T. Cunningham; Howard; Myron (deceased); Frances, wife of J. R. Baxter; Lloyd; Roger; Audley; Gladys, wife of Leslie Kahl; Roscoe and Horace.
