Another Story Discovered by David Lewis When researching Julian's history, I often find stories I was not looking for. On this night I was investigating stories of Volcan Mountain. had been at it for hours. Tired and somewhat disappointed at my progress, I decided to try just a couple more inquiries. What I found Was so interesting to me that I paused my research to write this little story. People are always asking me if anyone famous lived here, visited here, or are buried in the Julian Cemetery. What I found is not uncommon to Julian history. The answer is yes to all of. those questions I have written articles regarding movies and movie stars that have visited Julian. Two people of note are buried in the Julian Cemetery. The first is Siegfried Ruman. Sig Ruman immigrated to the United States and became a Hollywood adtor. He starred in numerous films including the 1953 movie, Stalag 17. He played Sergeant Schultz. Sig lived in Pine Hills until his death in 1967. Next is Robert (Bob) Allen. Bob and partner, Mel Shaw, took on the task of creating a new face for a puppet named Howdy Doody. The rest as they say, is history. Bob lived in Pine Hills and passed in 2008. There are other stories, but this next story possibly influenced the history of our nation. I found it in the March 27, 1938 edition of the San Diego Union newspaper. All Your Tree Service Needs Commercial I thought, "IT'S UNREAL!

HOME REPAIRS SIGNS - ARTWORK ROBERT GEORGE 765.1445 It tells of the passing of a local Santa Ysabel Indian who has since been lost to our collective minds for over seventy-six years. It is time we revisited this man's contribution to a major American literary work. According to the Union, a Santa Ysabel Reservation Indian, Jose Pablo, "was the first Indian policeman in the district." He died in 1938 around the age of ninety. The article tells of his passing and the influence Jose had over his community. A teacher at the Volcan ndian School who was Jose's neighbor, relates that Jose was, "a sexton, caretaker, and a faithful member of the Santa Ysabel Catholic Mission." The teacher, Lewis Martin, goes on to tell of how Jose was one 1 of the few Indians of this section who was able to speak English at an early age, and often acted as interpreter for the Indians. Here is the paragraph that got my attention and here we go with famous names connected with the Julian area. According to Martin, "When Helen Hunt Jackson came to the area m the 80's [1880's] seeking data for the book 'Ramona' she wanted someone who could talk her language and was familiar with the conditions on the reservation. Pablo was the man recommended, and he had many lengthy visits and .also trips in the old buckboard with Mrs. Jackson." What I would give for Jackson's notes while spea ng with Jose. I would have to live another lifetime, funded by some other means than I have at my disposal, so that I could follow these leads. All this, of course, is the Union's perspective on the life of Jose Pablo. I don't know how his neighbors on the Reservation regarded him, and I don't know how much influence his visits with Jackson had on her book. Ramona was a huge success, cementing Jackson's place in history. Jose Pablo may never be recognized as influencing Jackson's work. He may never be recognized again for his work on the Reservation, but he certainly deserves a nod from us. Team Off To Fast Start With another victory over Mt. Empire last night the Julian Boys Basketball team improved their record to 6 wins and 2 losses, This is the best start for the Eagles in nearly a decade! The team will be enjoying a Christmas Break but will be back on the .court as they face nearby San Pasqual Academy on 1/6.
