Zimiriah “Zimry” Haun

  • Birth 10 Apr 1822 Missouri, USA
  • Death 1889 Los Banos, Merced County, California, USA
  • Burial Non-Cemetery Burial
  • Memorial ID 78686352

Zimiriah lived in Gilroy, Ca prior to living in Los Banos, Ca. Zimiriah died most likely in either 1889 or 1890. It is uncertain as to where Zimiriah is buried as there is no cemetery record but there is evidence that he is buried somewhere in Los Banos, Ca. most likely on property that he at one time owned. The property is now owned by the IBM Corporation.

Zimry and Elizabeth had a total of eleven children. Their names were: William Andrew Haun, John Henry Haun, Henrietta Haun Angel, Alice Virginia Haun, Benjamin Franklin Haun, Harvey Zimri Haun, Mahala Haun Adams, Thomas J Haun, Elisa Haun, Laura Elizabeth Haun and Serelda Haun Edgar Fisher.

"There is an old story about a wagon train that came from the east sometime between 1855 and 1857. At the end of the train was the Haun family and another family that may have been the Mann's. This other family had a small dog that barked and made a rukes (sic: ruckus). So, the wagon master told the Mann family that they had three choices. Put the pup to sleep, leave the pup behind or stay behind with the pup. The reason for this was that they were in Indian territory and they could all be massacred if the Indians heard the dog, so they thought. The Mann's decided to stay behind so the Haun family decided that they would also stay behind with them. At first it was thought that these two families had become close friends and it was the friendship that made them stick together. However, it recently turned out that Mrs Mann's maiden name was Haun. The two families were related. So they all decided to stick it out together. The Mann's and the Haun's stayed behind for three days before they went ahead. Two days of traveling along the trail alone passed before they found their entire wagon train massacred by Indians. Thanks to that little dog and the closeness of the family, we are here today." I don't know if this story is true but it makes for a great story either way.

According to old Gilroy maps (see the attached map), a man named Z. Haun (who else could it be) owned 160 acres in Solis Rancho, Gilroy, California. The property was right next door to a man named J. Muir. This could possibly be the famous John Muir who was well known for living in this area. An A.J.M. Haun owned 30 acres in San Ysidro, California.
