I have a book called "Rocket of The Comstock" by Ethel Manter, 1950.This book has been around since before I was born.Several years ago I was going to get rid of it until I realized that it was signed to my father (an author). Thinking it might have some value, I kept it.
Just today, I started really looking through it and found that it contained, what I consider, valuable photos of some people...I should say, valuable to family historians, which I am.
There is a photo of John W. Mackay, the statue of John W. Mackay on the campus of the University of Nevada at Reno, a wedding photo of Mrs. John Mackay 1867, their homes, Marie-Louise Hungerford Mackay (her friends called her Louise or Louisa), and more.
What is contained in the text of the book, I do not know. There is no index.The book is mostly about John William Macay.
The reason I am writing to this forum is because I would like to help possible descendants of John William Mackay get these photos.I will scan them and email them to anyone who wants them.
When you contact me, please put JOHN MACKAY in subject line or I may delete the message.I get hundreds of messages a day.
