Subject: [CA-GOLDRUSH-L] MOST WANTED: Andrew Jackson MARSHALL
Seeking information about Andrew Jackson MARSHALL. I have information from 1859+ in Oregon. There is a short biography for him in "An Illustrated History of The State of Oregon" by Rev. H. K. Hines, D. D. pgs 298-299. Chicago: The Lewis Publishing Company, 1893. Regarding his CA years, it says that in 1849 he sailed for China, but after learning about the gold in CA, he changed his mind and went there. He mined at Mokelumne Hill, Downieville, and the Feather & Yuba Rivers. Had a store at Pine Grove and another at St. Louis, but was burned out. Did some mining at Yreka and later worked for the Adams Express Company as a messenger. [There is a St Louis on French Prairie in Oregon, I don't know where Pine Grove was.] Any suggestions anyone?
