13-15 Bailey, Long I am trying to locate the family of Richard D Bailey, son of Laura B. Long; he had a daughter, Norma J. Bailey (1940 -1960 Shasta Co. Redding CA). Laura was my Great Aunt.

13-14 Bosankom, Boscnko, Bosenko Looking for information on Henry Bosenko b. 1828, d 1883. Peolpe have his middle name as Grant and I wonder where this was found. Also multiple locations listed as native land:
  • Wisconsin 1867 registration to vote
  • Quebec 1880 census
  • naturization papers state Great Britian
There is a Thomas & Margaret Bosooaks in 1841 in Cornwall census with a Henry that is close to this age. Does anyone have access to Naturization paper as this may be most accurate for his native location.

Record shows:
Bosenko, Henry No. 90
Country of Birth: G. Britain
Date Naturalized: 28 Feb 1877
Court/Record Book: County

Also of interest is that grave stone has surname spelled BOSCNKO. Is very large stone so wonder why name is mispelled?

13-11 Thorn I find a California Death Index entry for Mildred Thorn, who died in Shasta Co, CA December 15, 1970. Her birth is given as April 4, 1885. I am attempting to connect her to Claude Thorn in Oakland, CA. Claude died in 1955 in Oakland. The next we see of Mildred is her death in Shasta Co. Any suggestions as to where to look? Thanks.

13-10 Ellena, Tolosano, Vran I'm compiling my family's genealogy and I'm looking for any relatives with the surnames of or middle names (because sometimes the middle names given where mother's maiden names in some cases of Italian decendents) of 'TOLOSANO, ELLENA (spelled only w/2 L's for the surname) and VRAN (which may appear as a middle name or surname). The dates would be from the late 1800's - mid-1980's. Any news clippings, obituaries, cemetery listings and locations, property reports, census reports, would be much appreciated. The Tolosano's of Mt. Shasta, CA and McCloud, CA are my relatives. But some of the decendants in Italy have the surnames of Ellena and Vran, so that is why I've included these names in this query. Jeffrie 06/30/13

13-05 Freet, Grush, Harris, Hoisington, Kingery, Sadler Requesting any information on John B. Grush (b 09/23/1827 PA, d 05/22/1906 IL) and James Grush (b. 1832 PA, d?), who arrived in Shasta County, CA., 08/22/1852 by wagon train and worked as miners; John returned to Illinois in 1860; James history unknown. They traveled with a party of men from Pine Creek County in Illinois (near Polo, IL) and are mentioned in letters and diary of Solomon Kingery (b 1831 PA, d Jul-9-1855 CA, buried Shasta Union Cemety). Kingery may have operated a store in the area.

Other names of emigrants arriving with that wagon train are: Mr. and Mrs. Freet and child, Harris, Sadler (or Saddler), and Hoisington. The Grushes may have been mentioned in one of the narratives by Joaquin Miller (unconfirmed). John may have returned by ship around the horn (unconfirmed).
