Comments: We have enjoyed a computor study of your area, including Bannack where we will be visiting in September 2013. My wife Peggy's GG Grandfather James Young from Ontario had a sister named Catherine Orr Young who married John Innes who was a gold miner in Bannack and Argenta before settling on a farm north of Dillon.This couple are buried in the Mountain View Cemetery in Dillon. Studing their life in this wonderful area of the USA has been a joy. By the way, John Innes was one of the Vigilantes that were in Bannack and Virginia City and other places.
Admin reply: So glad to hear that you are coming to visit us in Sept. We will be happy to try to help in any way we can

We have some but very little personal information on your grand uncle and the email address from which you sent the query does not seem to work. If you would email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org I will send you what we have and also will check St. Rose of Lima church to see if they have something more. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you again.
