What we know

18? - ?
Went to California to seek his fortune and married Enid (1863-?). Followed the silver rush out to Colorado. Met up with old friends in Cripple Creek, but pressed on for Marble Springs. After three fruitless years, Enid abandoned him. Found his strike1 in 1893, three months before the Silver Panic. Left his defective daughter, Sarah (1882-1894), and went off to recruit his friends to work his claim. The Panic struck while he was away, and he failed to return for his daughter.
