I am currently trying to unravel what the heck Horace Knight (or Knights), Marshall Short and Ferdinand Grisez were doing in Siskiyou County between, 1850 and 1852. And more specifically whether any of it involved building. Somewhere during that time period these three guys showed up, like so many others, looking for gold. Short, born in Ohio, came over the Isthmus of Panama. I don’t now what brought Mr. Knight here from his ancestral home in Vermont and know even less about Grisez.
