Here lies Captain Harry Love, who with a troop of twenty others, on July 25, 1853 allegedly killed bandits Joaquin Murrieta and Three Fingered Jack near Arroyo de Cantua, Fresno County, California.

Born in Vermont, Love first visited Alta California as a seaman in 1839. He served in the Mexican War of 1846 and later as an Army Express rider, and explorer of the Rio Grande. Love arrived in San Francisco in December of 1850 and took residence in Mariposa County. He was commissioned as Captain of the California Rangers on May 28, 1853 and in the following year married Mary McSwain Bennett of Santa Clara. Captain Harry Love died in the Mission City on June 29, 1868 from a wound he received in a gunfight with an employee of his then estranged wife.
