THIS IS NOT MY RELATIVE...found in "Miss Jessie May's Antique Shop" in Santa Cruz, CA. The check was made to the order of F.P. Hauck (treasurer of The New Almaden Company, Inc. from 1915-1930) on a Garden City Bank and Trust Co. check, and was signed by George Sexton, President of the company. Per an article in the the Weekly Almaden Times, published May 19, 2005: "When George Sexton purchased assets in New Almaden Quicksilver Mine in 1915, he hired Fred Hauck, Sr. as the company accountant and financial manager. Hauck and John Drew were instrumental in finding and selling quicksilver from the Senador Mine."
