H.C. Stockton’s Grave

H.C. Stockton’s grave, 1977.
Occasionally, I do a Now and Then segment. This one has a unique twist since it involves a cemetery plot. Those who either attended or reviewed the narrative of the Courthouse Centennial Cemetery Tour may recall the last grave visited was that of H.C. Stockton. As a refresher, Stockton was appointed Supervisor in May 1864, along with Eber Bangham and Alvaro Evans to organize the newly created Lassen County. As you can see in the above photograph is his original headstone and below is the replacement.
