*Established in Calaveras County.  The change to San Joaquin is not explained.

See note under Stanislaus County. [Loving’s Ferry was  established in 1855 in San Joaquin County, on the north bank of the Stanislaus River, then the San Joaquin-Stanislaus County boundary.  On 3 June 1858, Pleasant R. Feagins was displaced as Postmaster and L. J. Morrow was appointed, the name changed to Holden’s Ferry, and about the same date the site was changed into Stanislaus County on the south bank of the river.  On 18 December 1858 Feagins was re-appointed, the name changed back to Loving’s Ferry, and the site moved to the north bank in San Joaquin County.  On 30 March 1860, David B. Gardner was appointed, but on or about that date the Legislature made a change in the County boundary, giving both banks of the river to Stanislaus County.  This automatically placed Loving’s Ferry in Stanislaus County but the record is silent as to any change of site that might be implied in the appointment of the new Postmaster.] page 201…npm.
