Asa M. Fairfield’s Grave

Janesville Cemetery, August 9, 2017
I had intended to include a photograph of Fairfield’s grave at the Janesville Cemetery when I wrote about his book Fairfield’s Pioneer History of Lassen County. When I went to the cemetery in mid-May I was not able to take a photograph since there was an inmate crew working there, getting everything ready for Memorial Day. When I went out over Memorial Day weekend, I thought I took a picture. Alas, when I got home there was no memory card in the camera. In my case third time is a charm and mission accomplished. What is unusual about his headstone is that he in essence is promoting his book!
