Description
The research project examines six Northern California cemeteries of Cherokee, Coutolenc, Marysville, Nimshew, Oroville Pioneer and Thompson Flat. The project documents gravestones of the cemeteries with photographs. A typology was created of material, marker type, design, membership symbols, epitaph, age, and family position for each of the gravestones.
Background
The cemeteries chosen for this project were a sampling of pioneer cemeteries in Butte and Yuba counties. The objective of the project was to establish a gravestone typology. This collection builds upon earlier research done by Amy McFarland
