I'm looking for any information on H.H. McColley b. May 1833 Ohio. Died Nov 13, 1918 winnemucca, Humbolt Co. NV. Marrried in 1869 to Lucy (Leinert)in Winnemucca Creek NV. Lucy had one son from a previous marriage. William Coulter/ McColley b. 1863 d.approx 1905-1908. He had one son Herald Nixon Coulter b. approx 1900-1905.
Does any one have pictures or information on this family. They lived in several places through the years, all in Humbolt co. In Dun Glen he rented a hotel in 1862-3, built a trading post 1 mile above Winnemucca and a trading post near Camp McDermit. Lived near Alex Middleton at Willow Point at the lower end of Paradise Valley. Quin or Queens River Valley and lastly Willow Creek where he was the oldest resident when he passed away in 1918.
1866 he hearded Cattle in Winnemucca when there was only 1 house belonging to Billy Lay. He later built a ranch in Quinn River Valley and raised cattle and horses.
He spent time with a captain Payne buring the Indian troubles in 1864.
Hiram's brother William came to the area in he owned two ranches near McDermit when he died in 1905 at age 65.
He helped open a new route to Idaho and to Camp McDermit which shortened the routes by several miles to each one.
1870 the land that he bought from A.B. Cutler in 1866 is taken from him by the government and made into an indian Reservation.
1882 He sold his ranch of 1000 acres, 2000 cattle and 125 horses to Jerry Hearn for $42,000 and keeps his Willow Creek Home. On the Census he is listed as a miner/prospector.
1906 His hotel in Willow Creek burns to the ground.
I would appreciate any information on any of the people listed as part on this family. I would love to know if the Coulter family stayed in the area or what happened to Herald Nixon Coulter or an Uncle John Coulter who lived with the family in the 1880's.
