Story*Winfield Scott Dunshee's biography as found in the History of Ventura County, California , p. 459-460:
"Since he located in Ventura county, forty years ago, Winfield Scott Dunshee has been an eye witness of and an active participant in the wonderful transformation which has taken place here, his efforts and influence having greatly contributed to the development and prosperity of this locality. His career has been characterized by persistent and indefatigable industry along well directed lines and the splendid measure of prosperity which has crowned his efforts has been well merited, so that today no man holds a higher place in public esteem than he.
"Mr. Dunshee was born in the state of Wisconsin in 1862 and is a son of John and Rosina (Parmelee) Dunshee, both of whom were natives of Vermont....
"Winfield Scott Dunshee was reared in Santa Barbara county, securing his education in the public schools, and on April 1, 1886, he located in the Santa Ana valley, of which he was one of the earliest settlers, and here he has lived continuously since. On coming here he bought three hundred and sixty-seven acres of land, to the improvement and cultivation of which he devoted himself with such vigor and judgment that prosperity rewarded him and he added to his holdings from time to time until he is now the owner of three thousand and seventy acres of land. He named his first ranch 'Chis-ma-hoo,' the Indian name for the mountain close by. In the early days Mr. Dunshee gave his attention largely to the raising of wheat, hay and hogs, but now he runs a large herd of cattle, in the handling of which he is meeting with splendid success. He also has a fine, productive orchard, comprising walnuts, apricots, Muir peaches and French prunes. his ranch is a part of the old Santa Ana Spanish grant and is considered one of the best and most valuable tracts in the valley. He was a resident for five years of the town of Moorpark, Ventura county, and while living there he helped to establish and organize the Commercial Bank of that place, being elected vice president of that institution. He was also a director of the Calfornia Walnut Growers Association.
"Mr. Dunshee retains vivid recollections of the early days in this locality and tells many interesting reminiscences of pioneer life. He recalls that wild game was abundant and that frequently deer would come into the yard of the ranch for water and feed. He has always cooperated heartily with his fellow citizens in the advancement of all measures calculated to stimulate the progress of the county or better local conditions in any way, and in his own life he has exemplified the highest standards of living. Because of these commendable qualities he has long held an enviable place in the confidence and esteem of the entire community, of which he is regarded as a representative citizen.2
