an old gold mine in california is said to have belonged to the hancocks of missouri and virginia and possibly tennessee. ancestors of edwin and nancy hancock, james anderson hancock and wife sarah mahulda decker went to placerville california along the American River. It is said that they bought mining land from disillusioned miners and ended up with a lot of land. He and his son jasper worked in hydraulic mining at union ridge. does anybody know where exactly, when, who owns the land now, or how well the family did from the mines?? any info at all would be great. i can share what family info i have. thanks
Laurie
