Isaac L. Thurber, a north coast landowner and bituminous rock mine operator. Neighboring property owners ran smaller mining operations, including A. Walrath, L. K. Baldwin, and Henry Cowell (see 1889 map at right). Thurber's land was part of the Rancho Refugio originally granted to three Castro sisters. The detail is part of the 1889 "Hatch Map" prepared for Santa Cruz County.

No burial record was found for Isaac Thurber, so he may or may not be related to the Lucretia Thurber family, for whom Thurber Lane in the Eastside neighborhood of Santa Cruz is named.
