Monterey County: Biographies


F. H. LANG is a native of Lorraine County, Ohio, born November, 1849, and was educated in the public schools there. After leaving school he engaged in the cheese-factory business, and in 1877 he came to Marin County, California, where he continued in the same business.

At the expiration of five years he concluded to go to a better county, and selected Monterey as his destination. He engaged in the butcher business in Castroville, in which he continued a year and a half, and then entered into partnership with M. R. Merritt, in the real-estate agency.

Mr. Lang owns seventy acres of fine land adjoining the town of Castroville. He was married to Miss Julia Damon, of Ohio, and is the father of four children.
