John Daggett came to California from New York in 1852 via the Isthmus of Panama. He settled at Black Bear on the Salmon River is Siskiyou county. He was part owner in the Black Bear Mine. In 1870 he married Alice Foree, who had come west with her pioneering parents at an early age. The couple had six children, three of whom survived childhood: Ben, Hallie and Leslie.
The success of the mine and Daggett's popularity led to his serving four years in the California Assembly. He was then elected lieutenant governor in 1886, and later served as superintendent of the US Mint in San Francisco. Daggett's Peak in Western Siskiyou County is named after him.
