BROWN - Irish/English Miner - Silver City 1870

Surnames: BROWN
I am trying to locate my GGrandfather, Charles (B.?) BROWN.
What I know is:

a. His wife, Mary E., was a dressmaker in Boise City, 1891
b. Son, James, was born abt. 1875 - Boise City
c. He was a miner
d. He was of Irish descent

Looking through the Silver City, Owyhee ID Census of 1870...I discovered two Charles BROWNs ...that were miners.

Charles #1 was 43 yrs - born in Ireland.
Charles #2 was 40 yrs - born in England (B.=middle initial)

Checking further...in "The Owyhee Co. Gleanings," I saw that a Charles BROWN had died in the Succor/Sucker Creek area
12 March 1885. Our Charles was alive until at least 1911.

I would appreciate ANY leads or suggestions someone would be willing to share. Does anyone happen know of a webpage or some other resource pertaining to gold/silver seekers of the early Idaho Territory?
