"Josiah Hamilton Langdon Tuck
The subject of this brief mention was one of the first to reach the Pacific Coast, after the discovery of gold had been announced to the world. He crossed the Isthmus of Panama and arrived in San Francisco in January, 1849, and was at Auburn, in Placer County, in February of the same year. He was born in the State of New Hampshire in 1825. Was educated at Hanover and graduated as a geologist. Except one year engaged in the wool trade, he has been very actively engaged in developing and selling mines. Has made 49 trips across the continent in the interest of mining corporations and effected the sale of 39 different mines. He has erected 10 different quartz mills and is now, in company with his son Fred, operating Orofino gold quartz mine, on which he has the most complete mill in the county, fully equipped with the air cornpresser, power drills, eight batteries, seven concentrators, White's revolving furnace pans and settlers, together with a colllplete assaying and snlelting outfit, all located on a 40 foot ledge, on which there is a double compartment shaft and all run by water power, with 360 feet pressure.
Mr. Tuck was married in 1835 [sic probably 1853] to Lucy A. Cutler, a native of Vermont. To them have been born 8 children, 5 of whom are yet living. Frank H. is Supt. of mines.
