David Merlyn Hamblin Sept 25, 1908 to Jan 26, 1914 was the son of E.O. and Josephine Hamblin.

It was in the winter of 1863-64, when the indians were cold and hungry, that an indian went to Wm Hamblin, at Meadow Valley, and offered to show him mines for a consideration. In this way the famous Panaca Ledge was founded. Hamblin, although he had worked in placer mines years before, knew nothing of silver ore, so he went to Salt Lake City with his samples and showed them to Governor Reed. The samples were looked over and examined by General Connor and others, and then plans were made for expeditions to be sent out to Meadow Valley mines.
