Sun, 26 Apr 2015 history 360 This Date in Wells Fargo History April 26, 1878. Tybo, Nye County, Nevada, according to a directory, is a new mining town with a population of about 400. Situated at 6,500 feet amid beautiful scenery, the town--a name derived from an Indian word and not a printers error--was remarkably healthy. Specifically, Tybo had an excellent mine, called the Tybo Consolidated, from which the town derives its support; 15 charcoal kilns kept the 20-stamp mill pounding 80 tons of ore daily. A list of inhabitants in this Hot Creek area could be very revealing. Not only did N.S. Trobridge have a large general store, but W.C. Reveal was the Wells Fargo agent--and superintendent of the 140-mile Eureka, Tybo, and Belmont stage line.
