My grandfather, George Gibbons Hayes, was the "Rockhound of the Rockies" and arrived in Colorado via an Orphan Train, where the Hayes family took him into their home. George wrote 5 books on mining/prospecting and includes some of his and Colorado history in the books. I'm searching for more info on him as I'm writing his biography. Any information would be greatly appreciated with a complimentarty book! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
