Realistic reserve set just to protect my investment, if there is a reserve at all. Good luck and thanks for looking!! The Pallett family migrated from Tennessee to California about the year 1857. After roaming about northern California for a period of several years, they settled on a 900-acre ranch in Los Angeles County in 1867, where they engaged in farming. Two of the daughters of George W. His sons and grandsons worked upon the ranch, or were employed by neighbors as farm hands. There is evidence of some trading in livestock. One of the sons acted as a deputy sheriff for a period of time. The nature of the avocations of the various members of the family indicates that their incomes did not greatly exceed their necessary expenditures. There is no evidence of opulence in their manner of living or in the property which they possessed. This ranch was held in the names of George W. Pallett and his wife. Several years spent in roaming about northern California does not indicate they had the opportunity of acquiring any great amount of wealth. The evidence of the existence of a community family fund is very unsatisfactory. Pallett testified that the family worked as above related with common interest and contributed their excess earnings to a community family fund in charge of George W. Pallett for a period of some twenty-five years. It is asserted that several of the members of this pioneer family, headed by the patriarchal ancestor, George W. There is no satisfactory evidence that this enterprise prospered. Pallett died in Argentina in 1901. His estate was never probated. There is some evidence of a partial distribution of the assets of his estate. Part of this ranch was subsequently exchanged for the Shoemaker ranch, consisting of 291 acres of land situated in Los Angeles County. One thousand dollars of this sum was paid with the check of T.
