In Reply to: Grass Valley- Cornish families by jeri mckee wenke of 190

My great grandfather SAMUEL HENRY CHENOWETH b1876 Hazleton,PA was taken to Grass Valley by his parents, SAUMUEL CHENOWETH and another between 1876 and 1889. SAMUEL was a miner from Cornwall. SH came back to England for good eventually after to-ing and fro-ing in 1905. Do you know anything about Cornish mining comunities in America, specifically in and around - Hazleton, PA; Ruby hill, Eureka Nevada; Bisbee, Arizona or Wardner, Idaho because SAMUEL and subsequently SH mined in all these areas. I have only the bones...can you flesh them out??
