Brother of Conservationist John Muir. John Muir invited his brother and sisters to move from Wisconsin to California to help manage his farm. In 1892, David Muir accepted his brother's invitation. David had been a partner in a successful business in Wisconsin. Unfortunately, his partner embezzled funds over a period of 20 years which caused the enterprise to fail. David ran the valley ranch properties when John Muir and wife, Louise Strentzel Muir, became responsible for the estate of her father, Dr. John T. Strentzel. David lived in the old Strentzel home in Alhambra Valley.His second wife was Juliuette (Treadway) Muir.
