I am looking for information about the history of this place. I have a copy of a marriage certificate dated 1877 with Oso Flaco as the place of marriage. A web search only turns up information about the park in San Luis Obispo. Does anyone know where the town used to be? My gr-grandfather lived near Santa Maria in the 1870s and the certificate is that of his step-daughter. Was Oso Flaco in Santa Barbara county then? Near Santa Maria?
