In 1848 John Doak establishes the first ferry service on the river, and the first freight vessel, the sloop "Maria," visits Stockton. In '49, Doak brought lumber from San Francisco to Stockton and begins a lumber business. By the 1850's, the Port has become a center of commodity shipping and the supply center for the goldfields.
