Louis Robidoux, (6D2a1g) born July 07, 1796, was one of seven French Canadian brothers who played a pivotal role in the history of the American West. Involved in the fur trade business with his brother Joseph, the founder of St Joseph, Missouri, Louis eventually based his operations out of New Mexico, but later moved to California, where he purchased a part of the original land grant of Juan Bandini, sold to him by James Johnson. Known as Jurupa, Louis lived and farmed here for a number of years. Currently the city of Rubidoux is built on what used to be part of the Rancho Jurupa.
