2 Tuolumne County Water Co # 3163 273 shares and #3166 276 shares to John Sirre? 1857, both have center cuts. 2 Anglo Californian Gold Mining(According to Filer (Holabird), this was the largest foreign issue of a California Gold Rush venture that we know of. The company literally sold thousands of shares. The company began as the Anglo California Gold Mining & Dredging Co. in 1849., owned by Luke Williams. It was the last of Williams "gold bubble company promotions." Williams sent Henry Vere Huntley to Calaveras River in 1849. Huntely was unsuccessful, so he hired miners of the Quartz Rock Mariposa Gold Co. and arranged a deal with them. While he was in America, the name of the company had changed. The lack of progress and name changing made the directors of the company very suspicious, and they forced Williams out in April 1851. The new directors decided to crush and process ore mined by others, and sent two steam engines and crushing mills on the Augusta that year)" I/U #99679 and 99680 Frederick Ball 1 share each 1853.
