Click for larger image 1863 Knights Ferry Yolo California 10c Washington Used As Revenue Promissory Note 5 7/8 X 8 inch manuscript promisorry note, stamp tied by signed Charles St. Louis. Some info mention about Charles St. Louis was a owner at one point of Woodlands first newspaper. The first newspaper published in Woodland made its initial appearance on June 11, 1864, under the name of the Woodland News: This paper had previously been published in Knights Landing under the name of the Knights Landing News, and in Cacheville under the title of the Yolo Democrat, the first issue of which came off the press in the spring of 1857. At that time William L. Jernagan and Everts were the proprietors and publishers and for a while Samuel Ruland, of Woodland, was the editor. This paper was published about one year. It eventually became the property of M. P. Ferguson, who revived the publication in 1858 under the name of the Cacheville Spectator, but after a few months of such trials and tribulations as must have attended his efforts to maintain a small paper in a sparsely populated community, he relinquished the title and management of the sheet to T. J. Howard, who formed a company, moved the plant to Knights Landing and published just one issue of the Knights Landing News. About two months later S. W. Rarely acquired the property and revived the enterprise at the scene of its untimely demise, under its old name. The first issue of the revived publication appeared under date of November 5, 1859. He continued the publication of the paper at Knights Landing until June, 1864, when the plant was removed to Woodland, where the name was changed to the Woodland News, as has been previously mentioned. In August, 1865, H. C. Grover and Charles E. St. Louis purchased the paper and changed its political complexion. Up to that time the paper had always been Democratic in its party affiliation, but under the new proprietorship it became an advocate of the principles of Republicanism.
