Contributor Mabel Prager (donation first gifted in 1975) wrote a short biography about her family: Mrs. Prager identified her grandfather as Richard ""Dick"" R. Lee who migrated to the United States in 1885 or 86 from Cornwall, England; thus carried the identity as a ""Cousin Jack"" as many Cornishmen who migrated to the U. S. were called. Mr. Lee settled in Pinos Altos, N. M. and eventually moved his family from England around 1891 to Pinos Altos. The mine near Pinos Altos that Mr. Lee worked closed, and the Lee family then moved to Mogollon, N. M. Later, Mr. Lee was involved in a severe mining accident and the family moved back to Pinos Altos, opening a bar known as ""Dick's Cave"" and a feed and grain store. Mrs. Prager wrote that the building (the old bar) is still in existence. Memoirs paraphrased from Mrs. Prager's family biography.
