John Daggett was born in Newark, New York, May 9, 1833. He came to California ca. 1852, at age 19, with his brother David and was elected to the Assembly in 1858, and re-elected in 1859, and 1880. He bought into the Black Bear Mine in 1862, sold out in 1863, re-opened in 1866, and sold out again in 1872. He bought it again in 1884-85. Daggett was elected Lieutenant Governor in 1882. He was appointed Superintendent of the United States Mint in San Francisco in 1893, in which capacity he served for four years. He held interest in the Calico Mine in San Bernardino County. The city of Daggett, in this mining area, was named for him. He died August 30, 1919.
