CADWALADER, GEORGE, was born in Zanesville, Ohio, in the year 1830, and remained there until February, 1849, when he struck out for California, and reached it in July, 1849. After a year's rough experience as a miner at the headwaters of the American River, he settled in Sacramento City, where since 1855 he has been an assiduous and successful counsellor-at-law in the highest departments of that profession. This is attested by nearly fifty volumes of the Decisions of the Supreme Court of this State. He married Eliza B. Wells in 1873. They have three children-Bertram, Charles and Linda. Office-holding seems to have been eschewed by him, and his time devoted "Rather to excite your judgment briefly, than to inform it tediously." A view of Mr. Cadwalader's residence is given elsewhere.
