Henry Tompkins Comstock
Birth: 1820
Death: Sep. 27, 1870

Prospector. His name is connected to one of the world’s richest mining discoveries. A native of Trenton, Ontario, Canada he traveled the United States and Mexico working as a gold prospector, trapper and shepherd. In 1857, Ethan and Hosea Grosh laid claim to a gold mine they discovered in western Nevada. Mysteriously, both brothers died shortly after their find. He took possession of the brothers' cabin and began searching for their old sites. In 1859, he and his partners sold their interests in the claim for a small sum. Later silver was discovered making it the largest and richest mining strike in America’s history. The discovery became known as “The Comstock Lode.” (bio by: Bigwoo)
