6th Generation Californian With Historical Roots


Being a 6th Generation Californian with roots deep in this area, my connections to people mean the most to me. I really enjoy this business because I get to meet some very interesting, intelligent, and accomplished people.

Beginning a new relationship with clients is the best part of my job, I get called in to fix, typically recurring problems that no one else has been able to fix. It is extremely rewarding to be able to take care of what my customers need and solve an issue that is disturbing their daily routine. 

Comment, complain, or chat with me, I want to talk to you.

Call me for a job and let's catch up in person.

 If you are not an existing client, I hope to meet you soon!

The Solinsky Family Historical Connections continue...
This building, erected in 1849 by the Walkerly brothers, was subsequently owned by the Morris brothers. It housed a general merchandise store in connection with the office of Adams Express Company, predecessor of Wells Fargo & Company. The original express agents were Sol Miller, C. W. H. Solinsky, and the Morris brothers.

C. W. H. SOLINSKY.
This estimable gentleman is a native of Poland, his birth occurring on August 14, 1814. Coming to the United States in 1840, he enlisted six years later in Quitman’s Division and fought through the war with Mexico, return­ing at its close to Pennsylvania. Still unsettled in mind, he embarked at the end of the same year---1848---on the ship 0sceola, and came in her to this State to enter upon mining, which he followed for three or four years in Calaveras and Mariposa Counties, and then in the vicinity of Sonora, until he found more acceptable occupation as a member at the firm of Miller & Co. Afterwards becoming agent for Adams & Co.’s  Express line, he held that office until the company’s dissolution.  In 1857, he received a similar appointment from Messrs. Wells, Fargo & Co., which he has retained until the present time. During these years Mr. Solinsky has also engaged in several mining operations; nor is this all that is within the scope of his business activity. One of the best appointed and well managed hotels in the foothills has been under his proprietorship for a number of years.The Solinsky family includes three children, Frank, now a promising young lawyer of San Andreas; Wm H. Solin­sky and Margaret F. Solinsky.“A History of Tuolumne County, California” Published by B.F. Alley, 1882.Submitted by: Nancy Pratt Melton   mmelton@rcsis.com
