Yes `oldstuff` thats the one, been trying to hunt down info like that the last couple of years!! In fact i found online a 1860 census from Pine Grove Township No?, Sierra county, where Hugh is 23 and listed as a `Miner`. Wiki describes Pine Grove then as a `gold Camp`. I`m guessing at this time he may have struck it rich there?? The only thing i`m really missing is a photograph of the old guy. He`s mentioned quite regularly in those old digitized newspapers of the time that are online particularly the Arizona and California ones, and you`d think with the mining and liquor circles he walked in there`d be a photo about somewhere.
By the way he married Helen in the First Congregational Church, Los Angeles in 1895.
