Angels Camp in Calaveras County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The Hogarth Family
Little is known of the early years of the mine, but Harry would eventually gain control of the entire claim and in April 1904 deeded it, "for love and affection," to his son Harry, Jr., along with all his property in Calaveras County. By that time young Harry, Jr., was an experienced miner, having taken his first job running an ore car, working a ten-hour-a-day shift seven days a week at a wage of $2.00 per day. Harry, Jr. originally worked the mine by hand, bringing ore home and crushing it in a simple bowl mortar
The claim continued to be worked through the years. Harry, Jr. died in 1952, and while his son Harry Lewis Hogarth continued working on the mine, by the late 1950s the mine and mill had been abandoned and left to deteriorate.
