You are now at the source of thousands of names of pioneers and settlers, who found their way to the mining communities of southwestern Montana Territory. Some while it was still part of Washington Territory, and then Idaho Territory, eventually Montana Territory in 1864. The individuals and families presented here, will help to perpetuate the memories of all of those hearty souls who dared to challenge adversity and hardship, known to be certain when settling in the mining camps of the far west. History has taught us that it was in part, through their commitment and determination, that Montana Territory acheived Statehood in 1889. These are folks that produced one of the richest silver mining booms in Montana history.
