David H. Price, b. ca. 1828 - South Wales

The Beynon family gravestones are located adjacent to the Seerie family plot.  David Duff Seerie married in 1887, Margaret A. Price, b. 1866, the daughter of Welsh immigrant David H. Price, who came to the United States about the year 1865, and first settled in Iowa City, Iowa before migrating west to Colorado the late 1870s.

The Welsh family of David H. Price, a miner,  and wife Elizabeth, b. ca. 1831, Wales,  first lived at Caribou, a mining town, outside of the town of Boulder.  David and Eliza Price had five children born between 1855-1869: Eliza Price, John R. Price; Rufus Price;  Edwin Price, Margaret A. Price, and Rhoda Price.  Eliza, John, and Rufus were born in Wales while Edwin, Margaret and Rhoda were born in Iowa City, Iowa.

David Price, 57,  along with his children Edwin, 15, Margaret, 14,  and Rhoda, 11, purchased in 1880 the "Queen of the Valley Lode" near Magnolia, about ten miles outside of Boulder, from J. M. York. One year later in 1881 David Price filed a Quit Claim Deed transferring the Queen of the Valley Lode to sons John Price and Rufus Price. The two sons, John and Rufus, then sold the Queen of the Valley Lode in 1882 to Reeve Smith and William Hemenway. The Price family moved to Denver sometime between 1882 and 1885. 

Son Rufus Price remained in Boulder County where in the year 1883 Rufus and partners T. J. Lafferty, A. J. McCorkle, Ed A. Knapp, Wm W. Bentley, and L. Poquette filed a location certificate for the Jinks Lode.

David's daughter, Mrs. Margaret A. Price Seerie, died in 1906 from tuberculosis and was buried in Riverside Cemetery.  Her obituary stated that sister Eliza "Mrs. Thomas Davidson" lived in Salt Lake City, while Rhoda "Mrs. Harvey George Morgan" resided in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.   Her three brothers John Price, Edwin Price, and Rufus Price lived 'in the west.'
