San Diego Union 5/3/1920

A. K. Cravath of Santa Ana, employed in the distriot attorney's office, has been in the city on official business, and has been meeting many of his old friends. Mr. Cravath lived here from 1886 to 1894. He is the father of "Gavvy" Cravath (note: he is Clifford C.) of the Philadelphia baseball team, who attended Escondido schools and played ball on the local teams.

A. K. and his brothers started out in Poway/Rancho Bernardo. I see a newspaper article dated 1883 that says Mr. J. B. Cravath and family arrived from Iowa, and that he is he brother of A. K. Cravath of Poway. There was also a brother named Ernest that was in the Poway/RB area, too.

H. H. Clark and family have also recently come here from the East, and are residing on the place occupied by C. C. Watson before he removed to Del Mar. Mrs. Clark is a daughter to S. P. Cravath and a sister to Mrs. Watson.
