Excerpt from History of Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Ventura Counties, California, Vol. 2

John F. More. Distinguished not only as one of the early promoters of Santa Barbara County, and a prominent figure in its material develop ment, but for the remarkable sagacity and discernment he has displayed in all of his business transactions, John F. More holds an important position among the more extensive and progressive agriculturists of Southern California, his highly improved and finely equipped ranch, containing between and acres, being advantageously located on the sea coast, about five miles from Santa Barbara. A native of Ohio, he was born in Medina County, August 19, 1839, and was there brought up and educated.

Mr. More was one of a family of twelve children, six boys and six girls, all of whom eventually settled in California. His eldest brother. A. B. More, who served for a time in the Mexican war, came to this state in 1846, and three years later two other brothers, T. Wallace More and A. P. More, also located here, and in 1850 they were joined by another brother, Henry H. More. These enterprising brothers invested largely in land, at one time owning a strip extending from within a mile of the sea up the Santa Clara Valley for more than thirty-two miles, a valuable property, from which they subsequently sold acres to G. G. Briggs. On March 24, 1877, T. Wallace More was brutally assassinated by masked men who first set fire to his barn in order to get him out of his house, and when he appeared at his door shot him, even continuing to pierce his body with bullets while he was dying. A. P. More, whose death occurred in 1893, was at that time sole owner of Santa Rosa Island. Three of the brothers, A. P. More, Henry H. More and A. B. More, are buried in Oakland, California, while the bodies of two other brothers, T. W. More and F. W. More, were laid to rest in the Santa Barbara Cemetery.
