Glencoe, CA, Located 10 miles northeast of Mokelumne Hill along present Highway 26, the vicinity of Glencoe was known as Mosquito Gulch in the early years. The post office identified the location as Mosquito Gulch from 1873-1878, when it received the name of the historic town in Scotland. Both names were subsequently used to decribe the community.

Valentine Granados, John Doble’s muleskinner, had a productive mine in the area which he sold to Mumford Eldred in 1858. In 1873 the Good Hope Mine, formerly worked by Mexicans with arrastres, had an 18-stamp mill and was doing custom work for Glencoe district mines. Other mines in the Glencoe group included the Sierra King, Sierra Queen, Oriental, Monte Cristo, Blue Jay, Mexican, San Bruno, Aetna, Banner, San Pedro, Spring Day, Blue Bell, Bismarck, Norwich, Alabama , Rindge No. 3, Fidelity, Stone Wall, and Garibaldi (personal communication, Lloyd Donald Ames 2010). In 1899 Glencoe was still the trading center and post office for quartz and drift mines in the area.

By the late 1800s, ranchers and farmers had settled into the landscape, providing stability and family life to the community. WWII added lumbering to the vocations of many area families while today most residents comute to jobs in nearby towns.

Bore Diameter: The bore diameter is the tightest tolerance spanning the distance between opposite sides of the bore. In a rifled barrel, this dimension is measured from the highest point on each side to the other.

Glencoe, CA, Glencoe, a small town of around 100 voters with a school, a post office, and store is situated about nine miles east of Mokelumne Hill.

In the early days it was known as Mosquito Gulch. The early settlers mined the gulch and on account of the marsh-land and so many water holes the mosquitoes flourished and there seemed to be more mosquitoes here than anywhere around. There were steep hills all around running down to the gulch. The first locations were taken up and the houses built right along the creek.

George W. Berry operated a store on the south side of Mosquito Gulch in 1879.

Jerome Burt and son, Bill, operated a store on the north side of the Mosquito Gulch about the same time and on, until after the turn of the century. Burt’s General Store was a two-story wood structure with a post office and store room on the ground floor and a dance hall upstairs. The stairs leading up to the dance hall were on the outside of the building.

At one time the Mosquito Gulch School in the 7th District took in all the land to the east, including Rail Road Flat and Independence. This District No. 7 was divided on November 7, 1866, under Dr. F. D. Borston, and the eastern half was called Eureka School District, which later became Rail Road Flat School District.

The gravel was very rich along Mosquito Gulch and many thousands of dollars were taken out with the crude hand mining of that day.

After the placer mining, came the hard rock mines– Norwich, Valentine, Banner, San Pedro, Mexican, Poor Man, Wolverine, Mondani, Fannie Marie, Stonewall Jackson were developed.

Frank Matson worked a mine with an arrastra in Wet Gulch at the junction of Pennsylvania Gulch, about three miles from Glencoe on the Independence Road. An old Mexican by the name of Breeto had a mill and mined near the Alfred Porteous home of today. Mr. Gillespi was an early day superintendent of the Valentine Mine.

On Three-Cent Flat, about two miles from the main town, there were coal pits where coal was made by burning oak wood under the ground for several weeks. The coal was used by blacksmiths for sharpening mining tools.
