Fannie and her brother B.B. equally owned the 450 acre Hinshaw sheep ranch at 2752 Gurneville Road, where they grew hops from the 1880s until 1960.  Two other families stopped at that same time; that was the end of the hops business in Sonoma County.  In 1926 B.B. was preparing for a major trip (possibly to Hawaii) so he deeded his half of the Hinshaw ranch to his sister Fannie.  She kept the deed in her desk, unrecorded, so as not to disrespect her older brother, who she idolized.  After B.B.'s death the ranch was inherited by Fannie's grandsons, Edward and Jerrold Peterson (who had the deed recorded).  In 1976 Edward and Jerrold sold the land to Ken Martin, who had been leasing the land from B.B. when B.B. was no longer able to work the ranch.13,20
