Finding two physicians already there, he moved his practice to San Jose “with no money, but a good supply of books, surgical instruments and drugs.” Shortly after arriving, gold was discovered in the local mines, and Cory managed to acquire about $4,000 worth. He was elected to the Lower House of the first Legislature convened in California, and also served on the City Council of San Jose (“Benjamin Cory”). “Benjamin Cory.” The Pioneer. San Jose, CA. Jan. 28, 1882.
