Ventura County was formed in 1872 from Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Los Angeles counties. In 1782 the Mission San Buenaventura was founded as San Buenaventura (now known as Ventura). Buenaventura is composed of two Spanish words, buena meaning "good" and ventura meaning "fortune."

I found two individuals (Taylor surname) born in KY who died in CA here:
