04-17 Buchl, York I am looking for information on Thomas York who died in Cottonwood in 1948. He was born in Bangor Maine June 13 1903. He was in Cottonwood working on a road living with his girlfriend; his two sons were in an orphange in Auburn California. I know he did not drive and I believe he could not read. He claims to have been from Russia and those who knew him remember his thick accent.

I have a copy of his death certificate and social security application. On his marriage certificate he claims his father, Jack York, was born in NYC and his mother, Alma Buchl, was born in Hartford Conn. He refers to his father also as Thomas and his mother as Anna Butchl. ANY help on this line would be of great help. I am wondering if there was an obit in the local paper? Thank You.

04-12 Macanphy, McKelvey, Mulanphy Looking for any information concerning John Mullanphy (and various other spellings such as: Macanphy, Macanphly, Mulanphy, Malanphy, Mcelvey).

John was born ca. 1805 in Ireland and appeared on the 1850 California Census as a 55-year old miner for gold on Mathinas (?) Creek, El Dorado County, California. At that time he was living with another miner, William R. Hicks, a 49-year old native of Massachusetts who possessed $4000 worth of real estate. John appears living alone on the 1860, 1870, and 1880 Censuses of Shasta County, California. In 1860, he is living in Horsetown and is enumerated as John Macanpley, a 55-year old miner and native of Ireland. In 1870, he is John Mulanphly, 65-year old miner and native of Ireland, living in Township 5, Stillwater, Shasta County. In 1880, he is John Malanphy, a 73-year old miner still residing alone in Township 5, Shasta County. He and both his parents are listed as having been born in Ireland and he is enumerated as married despite the fact that no wife or family was located with him in that or the previous three census years.

I realize chances are slim, but any information concerning this individual would be greatly appreciated.

He helped to move all the cattle to Redding CA in the fall and the winter months and back in the spring to Fort Klamath, OR. On one deed is Troy M. Miller. I would like to know which Miller family was in Redding area during the1 920's - maybe up to the 60's and/ or longer?

Carrie had a daughter that married a Sullivan. Her name was either Martha or Ethel. Any help on finding this family's records would be wonderful.

04-03 Greene, Signett I am trying to research my family and I believe my maternal grandparents lived in the Redding area for quite some time and are buried there. My Grandmother's name was Charletta (Letty) Lucille Signett nee Greene. I believe she was born 7/16/1896. She died in Redding sometime between1959 and 1961.

My Grandfather was Fred P. Signett and his date of birth is 11/08/1894. I don't know when he died exactly, but I think it was a couple of years after my grandmotherso 1961-1963. What I am trying to find out is - if there is any information that can be gleaned from the records in Redding, CA that will lead me to either of their families (their place of birth, parents names etc.) Before her death, my mother told me that my grandfather had worked for Shasta County in the road department. That would have been in the 1940' and 50's she thought. Any information would be more than I have now. Since this is the sum of what I know.
