Roger, you guessed James Short and that was the answer!

Yes Mike, you connected the dots!

Gene, thanks for adding the great kindness "Uncle Jimmy" did for Lincoln. During the gold rush "Uncle Jimmy" took wagons out to the California gold fields and fell on hard times. President Lincoln helped his old friend by appointing him an Indian agent in Mendocino County but Short was suspended in 1863. pg. 46 New Salem-A History of Lincoln's Alma Mater, by Joseph M. Di Cola.
