Great-great grandmother Louise Howe b. 1840
Grandmother Louise Perkins b. 1890 (in Tombstone, AZ!)
Great grandmother Gertrude Perkins b. 1869
My great grandfather, mining engineer, built the stamp mill at the Jamison Mine in Johnsville. Below is a picture of an actual receipt for delivery of a gold bar from the mine, my great grandfather acting as agent.
Grandma and her twin delivered the gold bars, covered with a blanket, in a horse and buggy to the shipper. The gold was then shipped to Wells Fargo in SF. Their father rationalized that robbers would not suspect girls of 12 were secreting gold in a buggy.
