Arrangement and Description

Since there are so few items in this records group no series designation was made. However, the records are arranged in the same sequence as those in other mining groups.

Scope and Content

The records of the Tuscumbia Mining Company span the years 1911 to 1941. Included are a copy of the company's by-laws, correspondence with suppliers and stockholders, stock ledgers and journals, ore settlement sheets, assessment records, a financial ledger, a voucher register/cash book, and a cash book.


Administrative/Biographical History

The Tuscumbia Mining Company was incorporated August 14, 1911 by E.C. Meiklejohn, G.W. Dougherty, D.L. McGrath, and H.C. Osborn of Wallace, D.J. Whaley of Stevensville, Montana, and John Wolfe of Tekoa, Washington. The authorized capital was $750,000.00 divided into 1,500,000 shares with a par value of 50 cents each. The property consisted of 1 patented and 6 unpatented claims in the Beaver District of Wallace. Stock assessments were levied to pay for annual labor. The company failed to file annual reports with the Inspector of Mines after 1925. In 1931 the Consolidated Mining Company, D.A. Callas, president, was formed to take over the properties of the Tuscumbia and Dire Mines. In 1940 the Tuscumbia property was sold to Earl B. Bowen and became part of a larger mining company. In 1942 Tuscumbia became part of the Portland Mining Company, which merged with Monitor Mining Company in 1943.
