April 9, 2012 14 Downtown News Druggist, Banker, Governor and Downtown Pioneer Recalling the Life of John G. Downey by GreG Fischer J ohn G. Downey was an Irish immigrant. His family crossed the ocean to Maryland in 1842 while the future governor of California was 14. In an effort to make his own way, as the family was not well-to-do, Downey became an assistant to an apothecary ( or druggist). He moved to Cincinnati to practice his trade and was later lured to California by the siren song of gold. He tried his hand at working the gold claims but soon left, finding it an unrewarding and difficult life. Downey turned back to his drug store roots and moved to Los Angeles in 1850. He started a store with J. P. McFarland at Commercial and Los Angeles streets and married a local teenager, Maria de Jesus Guirado. Her father was Don Rafael Guirado of what is today Whittier and Guirado Park in Whittier. The couple had no children. Irish immigrant John G. Downey lived for a time near Fifth an...
