Stormy Weather

Hello Whispers,

Marin County Storm

 

 

The storms are lined up off the California coast today, and snow is expected down to 2000′ tonight. It’s a good day to stay hunkered down, and do some paranormal research.

Getting the back story of the places we visit, and those we plan to visit helps me verify the facts. I looked up the story of Martin “Mike” Tovey and discovered that his stagecoach was held up more than once. In fact he was shot and wounded in a robbery back in 1850. During that hold-up, he was shot in the arm, and sought shelter in a nearby farm-house. Three years later, he was murdered on the stage from Jackson to Ione, California.

Here’s a copy of the newspaper, with the report on the 1850 hold-up. It’s really cool to check out the writing style, and ads, too.

The Daily Record-Union, September 7, 1850

We’re hoping the rain lets up by the weekend, so we can visit the Piedmont Cemetery in Oakland, California.

Where ever you are, I hope the weather is kind to you. Let me know if you plan on any paranormal adventures this weekend.

Stay vigilant,

Robin
