Henry F. "Harry" Cassidy was an auctioneer and traveling salesman based
in Stockton California during the first decade of the twentieth century. His
sales "territory" seems to have been the Mountain states: Colorado, Utah, Idaho
and Montana. While traveling in the region he wrote to family and friends about
life in the region (1902-1913). [Ms2.C345]
Little is known about writer Harry G. Clarke save that he lived in Twain
Hart (Calif.) and wrote a "cowboy novel" titled Buffalo Grass (1953).
J. J. Couturier was a placer miner in the Montana District near Empire,
Clear Creek County, Colo. (c1890-1910). He had a son, Nicholas, and a daughter,
Angelita Towlerton, to whom he tried to leave a claim, the Klondike Placer, in
which he owned a half-interest. Correspondence in the Couturier Papers indicate
that his ownership of this claim was disputed after his death by the Bellevue
Hudson Company, which apparently took over the diggings and denied Couturier
heirs access to the property. [Ms2.C871]
