Dear editor,

The public needs to know the facts about the Poste Homestead and that fact is there was no Poste Homestead.

Land was disposed of by the authority of many acts of Congress; sale, homesteads, military warrants for military service, timber culture, mining, etc. One of the primary purposes of these public land laws was to encourage people from the East to move West. Land patents document the transfer of land ownership from the federal government to individuals.

BLM/General Land Office land patent records include the information recorded when ownership was transferred. A search of the General Land Office records prove there was no homestead recorded for Dave or Anna Poste in California.

The Virginia Dale Mine dates to the early 1880s and while true Dave Poste did lease the mine in 1923 he only operated it for three days when he was forced to shut it down due to a lawsuit.

The old hog ranch is being used as the red herring to close down a legal off-highway vehicle use area and many of you have been duped, including the press and BLM.

  1. We better double check the facts here.

    Lets do a online search for the “homestead” of Dave or Anne Poste.

    So lets go here. http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/PatentSearch/ You will enter California as the state and fill in the last and first name.

    Example: California-Poste-Dave. So what did you find? Nothing, just an old Hog Ranch being used as the Red Herring to close down a legal Off-Highway vehicle use area. “
