James A. Usher (1850-1923), was a farmer who started Jill Mining Industries Incorporated after discovering gold on the Gold Shores River.

BiographyEdit

Born in Oxford, Eneritia, Usher moved to Jill at the age of 11 in 1861. He lived in Port Justin for the remainder of his life.

In 1901, Usher started a small farm on the Gold Shores River. The farm enjoyed mild success throughout the 1900s, until 1911.

In 1911, Usher was walking along the river when he saw a "shiny object of unknown presence" in the grass.[1] Curious, he picked it up and immediately discovered it was gold.

During the rush of 1911, Usher became extremely wealthy from his findings and founded Jill Mining Industries in 1913. Along with is, the new business bought 7.5 miles of the river for mining.

Usher died in 1923 due to lung cancer.
