Notes: Applegate School was built in 1879-80 on land donated by Rial Benedict, near the location of the present Applegate School. The Benson mine was to the north of the school. John Byrne was born on Humbug Creek in 1887 but his family had moved to Squaw Creek (Watkins) by this time; he boarded with the O'Brien family to attend this school.
