Background
The Alexander and Brooklyn Mines, also known as the Silver Palace Mines, Old Grantsville Mine or the Webster Mines, are located in the Union Mining District of Nye County, Nevada, south of Ione. P. A. Haven discovered the Union District in 1863 and the city of Ione and camp of Grantsville were established that same year. The mines were owned by Harvey Seeley Mudd (1888-1955), his father Seeley Wintersmith Mudd (1861-1926), and their associates, including a William J. Webster of the Webster Mines Corporation. They did considerable work there, but the mines were eventually abandoned after unsuccessful attempts to make them profitable both through mining and leasing.
