In 1871, Gordon and Rosa Ison came west with their former master, John Glenn, from Knoxville, Tennessee and settled in Watsonville. Gordon, a native of Virginia, found work with the Watsonville Water and Light Company, where he remained for over 30 years.
Rosa Ison, born in Tennessee, was a servant in the household of General "Stonewall" Jackson during the Civil War.
