California 49er and Nevada Mountainman
John Brackin Mankins

He owned "Eagle Station, a trading post on a large ranch, including all of what is now called Eagle Valley, including Carson City, Nevada. Finally in 1858 he sold it for only $300 and a few mustangs to Abraham Curry, John J. Musser, Franklin Proctor, and Benjamin F. Green who purchased from him 865 acres. After he left, the four buyers soon begin laying out a community, which Proctor named Carson City, the capital of Nevada. Over the mountain the following year the Comstock Lode was discovered - a vein of silver seven miles long and half a mile wide, the largest silverstrike in the world!
