On May 26, 1863, Barney Hughes, Thomas Cover, Henry Rodgers, William Fairweather, Henry Edgar and Bill Sweeney camped along a small stream fringed with alder trees. Fairweather and Edgar went to prospect a place of rimrock. Fairweather dug the dirt, filled a pan and told Edgar to wash the pan in the hope of getting enough gold to buy tobacco. When the first pan turned up $2.40, they knew the gulch had great potential.

 

Word spread like wildfire. Miners covered the hillsides with tents, brush shelters and crude log cabins. On June 16, the Varina Town Company platted the town. Some, supporters of Jefferson Davis and the Confederacy, intended to name the new town after Jefferson Davis' wife, Varina. But the newly elected miners' court judge, Dr. G. G. Bissell, was an equally stubborn Unionist. When it came time to file the official documents, he submitted the name Virginia instead.

CARL MAGNUS BORGSTROM was the oldest son of Carl Magnusson Borgstrom and Christina Marie and was born October 27, 1872, in Copenhagen Denmark.  He came to America at the age of 3 with his parents and brother, Alexander, who settled in Brigham City, Utah.

 

He worked around Brigham City for a time and a the age of 18 cam to Dillon, Montana.  In the early 1880s, he came to Virginia City, Mont. and worked as foreman in many of the mines around there.  He worked at the Easton mine for many years.

 

He married Anna May Harriman on July 6, 1904, and at the time of their marriage, they gave a big dance at a hall at Granite Creek.  At that time there were many people living there and it was quite an affair. 

 

He was a member of the Alder Gulch Aerie No. 664 F.O.E. and just missed being a charter member by six months.  He was working at a mine and couldn't get down to the meeting, but was a steady member from the time he joined until the time of his death.

 

On June 1, 1942, he was appointed City Marshall of the town of Virginia City and retired in February 1948 because of poor health.

 

His wife, Anna May, passed away June 7, 1947 and he lived alone in the family home until about 1958, when he moved to the home of a daughter, Dorothy Stephens, and was living there when he passed away after a short illness a the Barrett Hospital in Dillon, January 3, 1961.

EASTON-PACIFIC Mine:

County: Madison

Area: Cirque Lake

Henry Ellings' Easton and Pacific mines were developed in the 1880s and 1890s. A 10-stamp mill was built on the Easton group in the mid-1890s and in 1902 a cyanide plant was added. The Easton-Pacific ceased operations in 1915 but reopened in the 1930s.

The Easton mine in located in Browns Gulch (Barton Gulch about 8 miles southwest of Virginia City and about the same distance from Alder Gulch, at an elevation of about 7,000 feet above sea level.  The vein is in a large somewhat irregularly lenticular mass of quartz monzonite aplite, rich in feldspar, which cuts the gneiss and schists of the region.  On the Easton claim the mine is opened to a maximum depth of about 725 feet by long tunnels and a 400-foot vertical shaft.  In this part of the ground there are two veins, uniting to the east.  The Easton vein strikes N. 48° W and dips about 68° NE. on the 100-foot level.  The ore minerals include argentite, auriferous pyrite, native silver, tetrahedrite, native gold, sphalerite, and stibnite.  The gangue materials are chiefly quartz with orthoclase, hematite, and limonite.  The ore shoot on the Easton vein decreases in width from 600 feet on the highest level to 150 feet on the lowest level now open.  The vein varies in thickness from about 18 inches to 6 or 8 feet.  The footwall is clearly defined by a strong fault; the hanging wall in indistinct, ore grading into "feldspar" in may places.  The mine has a 10-stamp mill, with amalgamating plates, a concentrator, and a 25-ton cyanide plant.  Only about one-thirs of the values are recovered on the plates.

In 1873 the Easton mine was reported to contain silver ore with about 1 ounce of gold to 30 or 40 ounces of silver.

Anna May Herriman was the daughter of Henry and Elizabeth Harriman and was born May 30, 1881, on Decoration Day (the former name of the Memorial Day holiday).  She could tell many exciting stories about going to the dances with a horse and buggy and how sometime they would get home just in time to go to work the next morning.  She lived on a farm at Granite Creek, just four mile from Virginia City.
