San Diego County
MRS. LULA (YANCEY) JUCH
Mrs. Lula (Yancey) Juch, the widow
of Arthur E. Juch, resides on the famous Anna Lou apple ranch in Julian, San
Diego County, together with her son, Louis Juch, who manages the property. She was born in Arizona, being a daughter of
Joseph Yancey, deceased, one of the earliest pioneers of California, who was
agent for the old-time Butterfield Stage between Texas and Oregon. Lula Yancey was the eldest in a family of
nine children, six of whom survive, and all of her sisters and brothers were
born in Julian, California, where the family home was established more than six
decades ago. The five sisters of Mrs.
Lula Juch are as follows: Mrs. Della
Blake, a separate biography of whom may be found in another part of this
publication; Mrs. M. De Arnaz, who resides in Los Angeles and has two children;
Miss Anita Yancey, who also makes her home in Los Angeles; Mrs. Edna Otero, who
lives in Los Angeles and is the mother of six children; and Mrs. Belle Houle, of Tucson, Arizona, who has four children.
Lula Yancey became the wife of
Arthur E. Juch, June 27, 1886, and five children were born to them. A review of the career of Mr. Juch, who
passed away in August, 1930, together with the record of the children of the
family, appears on another page of this work.
The Anna Lou ranch in Julian has been the home of Mrs. Juch since her
marriage forty-seven years ago and is now being managed by her son Louis. It comprises about one hundred and twenty
acres of land and is known far and wide for its fine apple orchard. Mrs. Juch is the capable secretary of the
Woman’s Club of Julian and has an extensive circle of warm friends here.
