  1. Shingletown Historical Museum:

    I am a descendant of John Klotz. His first wife, Climena Harrington Klotz (my Great Grandmother) died at age 16 and was the first person buried in Parkville Cemetery. I will be passing through your area about noon on August 31 (a Friday) but understand you are only open on Saturdays. Darn, would love to see some of the pioneer pictures. I am hoping to meet with Marilyn Roundtree, a cousin, for some guidance of the surrounding area. My Grandfather, George Lee Brown, was born at Round Mountain in 1865. If your summer hours have change would be happy to hear if they fit my schedule.
