FACT: He found the largest gold nugget in the United States in November, 1854. When weighed on Adams Express Company's gold scales in Stockton, it balanced the scales at 214 pounds and eight ounces, Troy.

A California Department of Forestry report lists his area in acres as 663,000, although the exact figure would be 663,477.949 acres (2,685.00000 km2). There are a number of caverns located in Calavera.

What do you think about the claims he once had his username and posts stolen in the great BlueGuerilla forum upgrade? Is there any truth to this?

You really did your research. I must admit this is all FACT! I do regret selling that nugget when gold was 10 cents an ounce. I should have held onto it a bit longer.
