Josiah Spofford-Rebecca Swisher Hansard

I have been looking for information on the family of Josiah Spofford-Rebecca Hansard that lived in West Bear Township in the 1870's.
Josiah (b.1849 Maine) and Rebecca (b.1849 Knox Co.,TN) married in 1867 (near Yuba Co)and raised a family there until her death in 1877 (perhaps killed by a fire). They had 4 children: Clayton, Calvin B., Henrietta, and Philena. Nothing is known of the children except Calvin B. marrying Hattie Duncan in Fort Bragg in 1893. They had a daughter named Esther Spofford.
Does anyone know of any private cemeteries in West Bear Township that contains the grave of Rebecca Spofford?
Josiah was still living in 1892...and later is found in Lake County in 1900. Unknown where he died and was buried.
If anyone knows anything about this family, I would certainly like to hear from them.
