James Foran Sr. was born in Ireland in 1822. He settled in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania where he married Catherine. They came to Mariposa County in 1858 and engaged in mining on Sherlock Creek. Afterwards they established a home and way station about four miles from Mariposa, at a place which they named Pittsburg Landing. Freight teams were kept there over night and the meals they served were widely known. John passed away in 1896 from throat cancer at the age of 72, Catherine passed away at the age of 72 in 1902.
Catherine left three daughters and two sons.
