    Need info on 9 miners, 1875 Snowshoe Cr. Mineral Co. Montana

    Hi, im seeking any information on 9 miners who worked Snowshoe gulch/creek in 1875. Snowshoe Gulch is a tributary of Cedar Creek
    (The Cedar Creek Gold Rush) which is just outside of Superior, Montana in Mineral County. I'm also looking for info on a man that goes by the name "Pirate Kelly" who lived in Snowshoe Gulch at the same time and had the reputation of stealing the paydirt from his neighboring miner's sluice boxes. (hints the name Pirate Kelly) any information or pics would be greatly appriciated. ~Kevin~

    I swear I've tried every published source of information out there! No luck. I did run across another last name. The Kenney brothers, worked Snowshoe Gulch in 1875. but that is the only info i can find on them also. no first names or anything. ~Kevin~

    Kevin, in your State Archives are the Census Records. Most Territories and states did them every 2 years. They will give you full names, births, deaths, marriages, profession, residence, and other goodies. Check it out Best Regards, Hardpan
