Cornelius C. Beekman (1828-1915) operated his own express in Jacksonville from late 1855 to May 1863, and avoided warring Indians on his trips over the Siskiyou mountains. In 1863 he sold out to Wells Fargo and stayed on as their Jacksonville agent. Beekman continued operating his own bank and was undoubtedly the most successful businessman in southern Oregon.
