Why and when did Thomas G. Martin come west from Maryland and with who?

 

If Thomas came to California because of the California Gold Rush, trying to establish when and why...and since Thomas was a miner per the 1870 census, the "The California Gold Rush" takes place on January 24, 1848, lasted until 1855, when gold was discovered at Sutter's Mill in Coloma CA.  Which is 340 miles from Scott River CA, which Scott River is the first known place Thomas per the 1870 census lived.  Unknown about the 1850 & 1860 census.

Note: The following may not be accurate as of this writing 20 Feb 08

 

1. Florance MATHUS/DIGGLE is a relative of Thomas Martin, she is an Indian medicine woman, Indian name of "Dr. 2 Feathers , m. Albert "Slim" Diggle. The SHS just says she is related to Martin's. I found she is George Martin's sister. She and hubby are not buried in Hamburg, so I believe may be in Evergreen, Yreka.
