In the early 1870s, when Black Mountain’s name was Mormon Boy Mountain, an old prospector known as Sweeny discovered gold on a hillock (knoll separated from the primary mountain) on the southwest side of Mormon Boy Mountain. When pondering a name for his new mine, Sweeny felt old Mormon Boy Mountain should have a girlfriend, so the famous Cave Creek Mormon Girl Mine was born.

In 1888, Samuel Taylor found work at the established Mormon Girl Mine. Soon his brothers, Edward and Frank, arrived from Nebraska. Next, his parents arrived, Isaac N. Taylor and wife (name lost to history), and finally, Isaac’s nephew, Edward P. McCormick, arrived and helped at the mine as well. The Taylor family eventually purchased the mine; their ownership spanned eleven years.

Isaac was educated at Athens College in Ohio and was a Presbyterian minister. In 1861, he moved the family to Nebraska. In 1873, Isaac started a newspaper called the Pen and Plow. According to the Phoenix Daily Herald, in September 1899 (the year of his Isaac’s death), the paper stated Mr. Taylor was an accomplished writer who contributed many articles about Cave Creek and Phoenix to Eastern publications.

Isaac’s nephew, Edward P. McCormick, who purchased the Pen and Plow from his uncle in Nebraska decided to sell the newspaper to start a new life in territorial Cave Creek with his family members. Edward eventually was known as Judge McCormick after he became the Justice of the Peace and Postmaster in Cave Creek. Judge McCormick was a gifted writer as well. He wrote long descriptive articles about Cave Creek activities for the early Phoenix newspapers using the pseudonym “El Montero” and sometimes “The Mountaineer.” The Phoenix newspaper editors respected his finely- tuned writing abilities and erudition.

In 1893, the Taylors, Judge McCormick, and a few others started the “Cave Creek Literary Society.” The Society met twice a month to debate lofty concepts such as Women’s Suffrage. Children would participate by learning new poems and reciting them aloud, practicing their public-speaking skills. Additionally, Edward Taylor, one of the brothers, started the first Cave Creek newspaper called The Cave Creek News.

In the challenging 1890s, the working owners of the Mormon Girl Mine were an important part of early Cave Creek history, not only for augmenting the Cave Creek economy, but for their influence on local education and literary enrichment.
