Frank R. Brown Photo 1868 Grass Valley
Posted by: Betty Tartas Date: December 30, 2000 at 11:07:47

Trying to solve a photo mystery. My great grandfather Frank Ricard Brown was born 1858 Sacramento CA. His father was Henry N.H. Brown and mother Cordelia (Myers?). Henry was a gold rush pioneer in Bodie and later settled in Sacramento. At any rate I have a photo of Frank Brown taken 1868 at a studio in Grass Valley, Nevada Co. He would have been ten years old. I am wondering if the family moved to Grass Valley for a time or if Cordelia Myers' family was from the area. Frank Brown eventually moved to Bodie CA where he worked for the Standard Mining Co in the late 1870s. Any help solving the photo mystery would be greatly appreciated
