The Dedication Of The Parkville Pioneer Cemetery (9/21/2019)

At 11 A.M., this morning (9-21-2019), the Lassen Loomis Ch. 1914 of the Ancient and Honorable Order Of E. Clampus Vitus along with the Parkville Pioneer Cemetery Board of Trustees dedicated the historic Parkville Pioneer Cemetery with a brand new plaque containing its history and dedicated it to the pioneering families who are buried there, like ours. Yes, the TUGGLE surname is on the plaque! Humbug, Wes Borden of the E. Clampus Vitus led the ceremony.

Above: the inscription reads, “Parkville Pioneer Cemetery Established between 1863-1864. Historic Parkville Pioneer Cemetery is the final resting place for some of the early pioneers who settled in Shasta County. Some of the notable family names are Darrah, Dersch, Lack, Giles, Wilcox, Rolison, Thatcher and Tuggle. Parkville Cemetery was originally part of the Thatcher homestead. Ezekiel Thatcher gave the Parkville Cemetery land to the community around 1863. A portion of the property was officially purchased for the sum of $10 in gold coins from Goodrich Peacock on April 23, 1910. The other portion was purchased for the sum of $10 in gold coins from G.T. Peacock and P.A.V. Peacock on April 20, 1914. The original trustees were Frederick Dersch, Max Lack, Alex Thatcher, Charles Rolison and G.E. Giles. Over the years, many of the grave markers have been lost, damaged or stolen. Descendants of Parkville have celebrated “decoration day”, which became Memorial Day in 1971. We thank all those over the years who have dedicated themselves in maintaining and improving this sacred cemetery.  Dedicated September 21, 2019 By Lassen Loomis Ch. 1914 Of The Ancient And Honorable Order Of E. Clampus Vitus. NGH#18”
