Gold and Silver: Comprising an Economic History of Mining in the United ... - Page 51
by Walter Richard Crane

This pack-road commonly known as " Stoneman's Grade " was, in the 80's, the main traveled route to the Globe and Pioneer districts. A soldier, named Sullivan, while engaged in this road-buiding accidentally picked up a fragment of rock and noticing that it was malleable carried some pieces along with him, but made no mention of his find on returning to camp. Later he left the service and went to the ranch of a Mr. Mason, on Salt River, near the present site of Phoenix. From time to time Mason heard Sullivan speak of his find and show the specimens. Sullivan suddenly disappeared one day and was supposed to have been killed by the Indians. Mason with others then sought the location of the vein from which Sullivan had got his specimens. In March, 1875, they were attacked by Apaches, and it was while being pursued by the Indians, who had killed one of their number, that the ledge was accidentally rediscovered. The sequel is not without interest as showing by what narrow margin fortunes are often won and lost: one day, in 1879, an aged man came to the mill of the Silver King mine and seemed to be very much interested in what he saw. Later, he told that he was Sullivan, the original discoverer of the mine. The story he told showed that it was not lack of faith, but lack of funds that had prevented him locating the mine for himself.
