ARTHUR C. BLAYNEY. Although a young man, Mr. Blayney has already become well established in Fresno county as one of the representative agriculturists and vineyardists. A native of Kansas he was born in Douglas county, July 5, 1869. His father, Charles O. Blayney, was born in Pennsylvania, and shortly before the breaking out of the Civil war located in Kansas where he engaged in general farming. Remaining there until 1875, he then sold out and came to California. The first two years of his residence in this state were spent near Visalia, where he followed farming. At the expiration of that period he moved to San Luis Obispo county, where he also carried on agricultural pursuits. Subsequently he went to Napa county and in 1882 located in Fresno county, near Fowler, where he was living at the time of his death in 1902, at the age of fifty-eight years. His wife bore the maiden name of Alice Stone and
was a native of Wisconsin. She died in 1892.

In their family were eight children, three sons
and five daughters.

Arthur C. Blayney was the eldest child, and after completing his education he engaged in farming near Fowler. In 1891 he located on the ranch which he occupies at present, and which he leases, consisting of three hundred and twenty acres. Here he is now carrying on an extensive horticultural and grain business, meeting with success in his ventures. He also raises considerable stock and conducts a small dairy.

In 1891, in the city of Stockton, Mr. Blayney was united in marriage with Miss Mary Cower, who is a native daughter of California, her birth having occurred in San Joaquin coun-
ty. This union has resulted in the birth of two children : Lillian Alice and Charles Oberlin, both of whom are living at home. Both Mr. and Mrs. Blayney are members of the Presbyterian Church of Fowler and take an active interest in church work, and both are members of the Fraternal Brotherhood. In political views Mr. Blayney is a Socialist, believing the principles underlying the organization are correct and that sooner or later the country will be governed by this party.
