Henneken Ranch, 1922

A Henneken family member feeds a fawn on Henneken Ranch (Fort Ord) on June 22, 1922 with cavalry soldiers in the background breaking camp.  Kaspar Henneken, patriarch of the family, was a Civil War veteran who made a homestead claim around 1887 but was ultimately denied the claim after David Jacks proved ownership of the City Lands tracts in 1901.  David Jacks was a powerful attorney and landowner in the Monterey area who also operated various dairying operations - creating the popular variety Jack cheese.  (Monterey County Herald Archives)
