Milo Hoadley, civil engineer, was born in Connecticut on July 25, 1809. In 1849 he came to San Francisco, where he found considerable
opportunity to practice his profession, serving first as assistant, then as deputy, to County Surveyor William M. Eddy. After
Eddy's election to the State Surveyor General-ship in 1851, Hoadley turned his full attention to former part time activities--making
private surveys and working on the 160 acre tract near Lone Mountain to which he had squatter's rights. There, on the land
later to be known officially as Hoadley's Addition, he began cutting wood for sale. During 1852 he and a C. McCartney were
partners in a down-town wood yard.
