excited!!! While browsing through a website for El Dorado, CA, looking for any info on Josiah, I came across a "look up" address. I e-mailed them, expecting nothing, but instead someone got back to me to say they have over 50 pages of probate records from his estate when he died.
They said he only had $44.00 dollars to his name but had a gold mine claim just outside Fair Play, CA.
There may not be much info about his family in the records, but one never knows. I've sent for the records and will keep you updated.
Doesn't take much to make me excited does it..............lol!!!
