Pre-1905 Calif Death Index
Yuba County is one
of the original 27 counties and created in 1850. It was named after the
Yuba River by Captain John A. Sutter for the Indian village Yubu, Yupu or
Juba near the confluence of the Yuba and Feather rivers. Vallejo stated
that the river was named Uba by an exploring expedition in 1824 because of
the quantities of wild grapes (uvas silvestres in Spanish) which they
found growing on its banks. Territory which at one time was in Yuba County
is now in Nevada, Placer, Plumas, and Sierra Counties.
