A Pioneer,there is no name better known in Napa County than William Gordon, a resident in Gordon Valley, named after the family.
He was born in Toas, New Mexico, Sept.27,1833, and when seven years of age was brought to California by his father William Gordon. The latter was a native of Ohio, of Scotch descent. After he was old enough to conduct independent farming operations, he settled on Cache creek, where he remained two years. In 1862, he settled in Gordon Valley, where he had twelve hundred acres, which he secured from his father.
In Napa, June 18,1861, he marries Juliette Chapman, a native of Connecticut and daughter of Levi Chapman. Of the children born of this marriage, George E. married Clara Leonard; Frank L. married Nettie Gosling and had two children; William H. married Rosa Chapman; Sphronia became wife of W.A.Clark; and Loleta married Thomas A. Loney.
