1857 · 7.9 Earthquake In Fort Tejon
Age 3
The Fort Tejon earthquake, on January 9, 1857, registered at 7.9, making it one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded in the United States. Only two people were killed, largely due to the sparse population in the area where the earthquake occurred. As a result of the large scale shaking, the Kern River was turned upstream and fish were stranded miles from Tulare Lake as the waters were rocked so far from its banks.
Age 9

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of numerous places so called. The vast majority, including those in Cambridgeshire, Cumbria, Dumfries, Durham, Kent, Lancashire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Northumberland, Oxfordshire, Sussex, and Yorkshire are named from Old English denu ‘valley’ (see Dean 1) + tūn ‘enclosure, settlement’. An isolated example in Northamptonshire appears in the Domesday Book as Dodintone meaning ‘enclosure, settlement associated with Dodda or Dudda’.
