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
