"Know all men by these presents, that we, Buckskin Joe & Co., claim 1,800
feet on the Phillips lead, and I, Buckskin Joe, claim the right of discovery."
Recorder Stansell was presented with claim No. 6 because he recorded the
certificates without fees, and this proved the richest section of the lode. In October,
1861, a town company was formed, composed of I. W. Hibbard, J. B. Stansell,
Miles B. Dodge and J. D. Stewart.
