Interesting highlights from the history of the railroad in Mendocino County were revealed for members of, Cultus Club,last vveek by Bill Bittenbender, who said he was introduced into railroading in 1972 by Nelson'Bvans. The 250 sawmills ' in the early history of Mendocino County provided a need for the railroad. He compared this number with the six that exist today. The railroad started at Petaluma, he said, where boats then carried the lumber down the Petaluma River to San Francisco Bay. Funding was an important part of railroad installation and Bittenbender picked some choice tales to tell regarding this. One was about Asbury Harpending. He described this ' young man as a gold seeker who arrived in California very late — 1857. The young, man was then only 16 years of age, he explained. Bittenbender described Harpending, as a good-looking,, blackhaired, Kentucky lad, brimming with enthusiasm, daring and a latent touch of Midas. Peter Donahue, however, is credited with r~eally building the railroad, Bittenbender said. He used Irish labor, advancing two miles a day, • In 1887 Ukiah was in sad shape financially, and when Rebekah-IOOF Installation Preparation for the joint installation of new officers of Cornelia Rebekah Lodge 205 and lOOF Lodge 174 ,were made Monday evening of last week when Rebekahs met at the lOOF Hall in Ukiah.
