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.
There are online pictures of the First Congregational Church, which is said to be the oldest Protestant church in Los Angeles. The pictures show both outside and inside.
