States: California: Sierra
Zachary, thanks for your post. Since I posted the earlier message, I have found a lot of information about E. Hall Martin, an Ohio artist, who moved to California with the Gold Rush. He was sketching in the mountains near Downieville when he contracted cholera and died abt. 1855. He was working on a series of three paintingss about the gold miners. Two of them have been found and exhibited in Calf. I have always assumed he would have been buried on the spot or in a nearby cemetery. I have found no other information about where he was buried so tried to identify nearby Gold Rush era cemeteries. He was a friend of my cousin's Lingo family in Ohio. Thanks.
