Once in California, he briefly tried his hand at mining but within a year returned to San Francisco and opened a wine and spirit business, owned in partnership. By 1866 his business had much expanded and he was sole owner and operator. He began a shipping venture, trading with both the South Sea islands, and the settlements on the Pacific coast of Russia. Later he expanded his trade to Australia. He bought a considerable amount of real estate throughout the states of California, Oregon, and Washington, and also invested in iron and mercury mining. He married Lavinia J. Linen on Nov. 3, 1863. Two of Hotaling's four sons predeceased him. Richard M. Hotaling served on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors from 1900. (en)
