The story of Rosina Farrington Stone takes us from her childhood in
Maine to the California Gold Rush in 1851. She was the first teacher
and the first bride in Grass Valley. We learn about her family living
during the last half of the 1800s in gold rush country. The story is significant to the history of Grass Valley and, thus, to the State of California.
Barbara Ann Warren inherited her 2nd great-grandmother's gold thimble and wants to tell the story of Rosina's life.
