In 1850, Marysville was a well laid out town at the confluence of the Yuba and Feather rivers. The houses were tents, the hotels, canvas walled and the saloons, a board suspended between two barrels. The freight off the boats from San Francisco was loaded directly onto mule trains or large freight wagons, which would pull out to the high country to supply the miners along the upper streams.

The men listed on the jury lists may not be named in any other place. Others will have bought farms or build stores. Many returned to the East with gold, but more without. All these jury lists prove is that they were in Yuba County for awhile.
