    Notes 

    • "Coming to America with his father and brother, they started from their home February 4, 1850, and he immediately began the battle of life in real earnest and under exceedingly adverse circumstances. In the course of eighteen months they had enough money between them to send for the rest of the family, who joined them at New Diggins, Wis. At a later date the father purchased thirty acres of land near White Oak Springs, Wis., and upon it sunk a shaft and for some time both father and son did a good business in lead mining."

      "About this time the coal fields of Central Illinois were attracting a great deal of attention, and the father of our subject was persuaded by a friend to come to Fulton County for the purpose of opening a coal bank. Being a practical man he was well pleased with the outlook and at once wrote to his son, who was engaged in the gold mines of California, to come to Illinois and enter the coal business. The father came to Fairview October 5, 1895, and the son arrived on the 23rd of the same month. They were successful and their mine became widely known as Traver's Coal Bank.", [1, 2]
