(4) "There are no further records of this independent company. However, there is no doubt but that Captain Minor intended to have a well drilled military unit representing his district, but for lack of enough support from other sources he was unable to continue his activities in making the Humboldt Guard a permanent unit of the Sixth Brigade, National Guard."
