Subject: [CA-GOLDRUSH-L] Most Wanted: John Richard NORRIS
John Richard NORRIS, born Culpeper VA in 1827, died Orcutt CA 1909, known to be on CA trail 16Nov1849 at Socorro, NM; a CA gold miner; and in Mariposa's 1850 U.S. census. Need to know if he crossed the CA border before 1/1/1850. Reportedly he (myggf) was at one time "agent and business manager" for Commodore Robert F. Stockton; built the first schoolhouse in Mariposa; and was its first school teacher. I need all information you can give me on any of these activities. Thank you!
