ARTHUR HUGILL, one of the pioneer miners and now a prosperous stockman, resides on his valuable ranch near Gold creek, Powell county. He was born in Toronto, Canada, July 22, 1834, a son of Thomas and Sarah (Brown) Hugill, natives of Yorkshire, England, where they were reared, educated and married. They came to Canada early in the year 1834, the father engaging in farming at Woodstock, near Toronto, for many years.

Arthur Hugill, one of a family of nine children, was reared on the Canadian homestead, but received limited educational advantages. Until he was twenty-seven years of age he worked on the farm and in 1863 went to California via New York and the Isthmus of Panama. The trip to San Francisco occupied nearly a month, and he remained a year in the vicinity of that city employed on ranches and such other work as he could find to do. During the spring of 1864 he went to Idaho, where he was engaged in mining in "Warren's Diggings," coming to Montana in the fall of 1865. At that period there was considerable mining excitement at Beartown, Deer Lodge county, now a part of Granite county, and for the following three years Mr. Hugill mined and prospected in that vicinity, but with indifferent success. In the spring of 1868 he removed to Pioneer, where he was employed as foreman of the Rock Creek Ditch Company for a number of years. Subsequently, while in the service of Messrs. Clark & Rogers, he went into the Butte district to prospect, and while there he took out the first ore that was assayed from the Original mine. During the fall of 1886 Mr. Hugill purchased 420 acres of land in "Hell Gate" valley, two miles below Gold creek station, Powell county, and in the spring of 1887 located on the same. Since that time, with the exception of two years when he was engaged in mining in Washington and American gulches, he has resided there. The ranch is the oldest property of this description in the valley, having been originally owned by Nicholas Connolly. Mr. Hugill is principally engaged in stockraising. paying particular attention to cattle.

On January 27, 1885, our subject was married to Mrs. Anna (Secrest) Brady, a native of Iowa City, Iowa, daughter of Robert M. and Rachel (Epperson) Secrest, the former a native of Tennessee and the latter of Kentucky, who were united in marriage at New Castle, Ind., where Mr. Secrest was engaged in the mercantile business. Later they removed to Iowa, where they died. Mr. Secrest organized the first Masonic lodge ever instituted in that state, and was a very enthusiastic worker in Masonic circles. He died two years after the close of the war. Mr. Hugill, while by no means an active partisan, is, politically, in sympathy with the Republican party.
