Hudson Bar
Bancroft places this bar, based on O'Reilly's information, near Cornish Bar, just south of Hope [the coordinates linked to above represent a best guess]. Hudson Bar was one among dozens of gold-rush sites worked along the Fraser River from roughly 1858 onward.1
An attachment to this document, signed by O'Reilly on 7 June 1860, lists 30 miners at Hudson Bar, and their average daily earnings in dollars.
