My understanding is that the accent would have been more likely to an Irish/British than what we think of southwestern. For whites that is. Irish labor was heavy in the railroad construction and mining towns. The predominant language would have been Spanish and would have been more "glue language" between the various communities.
At least that's what some smart folks who do language research here said (I was inquiring about the origins of a local subset of people and the "silliness of westerns" was brought up by them).
