A.J. Ware

”Swan River district, in the neighborhood of the basin just mentioned, contains many extensive tracts of rich placer ground, that were operated to some extent by the miners of 1860, who named them, respectively, Delaware, Galena, Summit and Buffalo Flats. Farncomb Hill (named for Harry Farncomb) stands five miles from Breckenridge, just above Georgia and American gulches, overlooking the old settlement of Lincoln. A considerable part was patented with the gulches by the Fuller company, but subsequently passed to the ownership of Col. M. B. Carpenter and A. J. Ware, under the name of the Victoria Mining company.”
