: I checked through claim records for San Diego County and found nothing on Lilac, or anything near the name of Lilac. There is however a small town named Lilac between the I-15 and Pauma Valley. I think most will know Lilac because of the road named after it which crosses over the I-15. Lilac Rd over crossing is that famous curved bridge that crosses over the I-15. Through GNIS data I also found a Lilac Tunnel in SD county, but Topos show nothing at all...

: Thanks! Dezdan for the reply, back in the 1970s when we tried to locate the town of Lilac we were told that the orig town of Lilac was on private property and was not excessable so we stop looking at that point, and just visited some other sites in the aera and then came back home, I had forgotten all that ghost town of Lilac till my friend called me, and don`t remember where found the Information on this mystry town,I guess it was in some old ghost town guide book I have been looking for that (G T) guide book ever since.
: anyway thanks for the Info. I will pass It on.
