Tombstone Tuesday - Stone

Nicholas Miner Stone
b. abt 1825
d. 3 April 1851
Robert Stephens Hardin kept a diary, which has been handed down through his family. He wrote quite a bit about Nicholas Stone, who may have been a cousin. Robert (R.S.) and Nicholas were running cattle about 30 miles from Sacramento in 1851 when Nicholas became ill and died within a few hours. R.S. couldn't get any help, and after three days, he buried Nicholas on a hilltop. The burial site is now within the boundaries of the Bobcat Ranch in Yolo County, California. R.S. and Nicholas were both from Kentucky. I would be very interested in corresponding with anyone who may have information on the family of Nicholas Miner Stone.
