Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
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.
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
