Little is known about John Sharkey, an agent of the Cerralvo Mining Company of Baltimore, in Cerralvo, Nuevo León, Mexico.
This collection is comprised of two letters concerning the Cerralvo Mining Company, located in Mexico but owned in the U.S. The letters are from John Sharkey, an agent at the Cerralvo Mining Company to Franklin Lewis in San Felipe de Austin, Texas. These letters refer to the transfer of the mines once managed by his brother, an R. Lewis, who recently passed away, and to the disposal of Lewis' personal property, which is listed in one letter.
