A recent auction on Ebay contained the following item:
Bill from: C.A. ADDINGTON
Ouray, Colorado Oct. 31st, 1917
Bill to: THE MOUNTAIN TOP MINING CO.
Size: bill is 3 7/8" x 5 3/8", voucher is 8 1/2" x 7". Included is the statement from C.A. Addington, a livery stable, for the rent of a team on Oct. 8 & 9, and horses on the 20, 23, 26, and 27. Rent for a team of horses for two days was $8, and for each horse individually, $2. The yellow copy is the check voucher from the Mountain Top Mining Co. The Mountain Top mine is in Governor Basin, just to the south and east of Yankee Boy Basin, to the southwest of Ouray, Colorado.
There are no Addingtons listed in Ouray Co., Colorado in the 1910 or 1920 census. The most likely person to be C. A. Addington appears to be Claud Addington who was closest in the 1910 census in Gunnison County which borders Ouray County to the northeast. However in the 1920 census he is shown to be in WY.
Claud Addington was born 1877,in Gardner, Huerfano Co., CO,
