Question: Minthorn M. Tompkins, 1869 passenger

Minthorn M Tompkins traveled from New York to San Francisco in 1869. Is his name on any of the passenger lists for that year?


"Jupiter" replaces damaged "Antelope" locomotive

I like your website!
I couldn't find this in the faqs. what was the name of the Central Pacific train that left Sacramento towards Promontory Summit? I visited Promontory Summit and was told the original train crashed. And a replacement train happened. Not the Jupiter?
Thanks for this info.
