Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Western Shasta county California history buff and family historian.
Being driven it turns out you spend alot of time in old cemeteries. So I started taking pictures and taking names. My FAG is a result of this and it of course is a work in progress.
I am affiliated with the Happy Valley cemetery in Olinda Shasta Ca...first burial was 1884 formerly known as the Oak cemetery.
please visit my link below.

My brother and myself have put together the first written history of our community. Our families being early pioneers of the area. After years of research and interviews, which were loads of fun, we published.

"Red Dirt Pioneers"
A story of the settlement of the community of Happy Valley and the village of Olinda. Beyond facts and figures, it is a human story packed full of anecdotes, stories and remembrances from voices of the past.

Feel free to contact me regarding family transfers or reliable additional information.

Thanks for comin' by!

My husband and I visited the Texas Springs area in hopes of finding the cemetery there but there were 4 large German Shepards running lose and we were unable to get out of our car. I understand there are several Huffords buried in that old cemetery - would like to find out who is buried there?

Thank you for all of your work. Sandy parks

I have just found your photos of the grave marker for my great grand uncle, Robert Thomas Edwards. Would you give me permission to use it on his profile page on my family tree?

Thank you,

I'm sorry to use the public message, but can't seem to connect. I really don't think Aunt Ella was born in Colorado, and I'm very curious about where you located information to indicate that she was.
Thanks for the work you do with find a grave.

I've added Abraham and Virlinda's tombstone pictures to their memorials in Stone's Chapel Cemetery. I was glad there was room for them, I'm not sure what else is on there.
