"The information about each person was interesting and "enough" for a quick read and a good overview - serving as a delicious "appetizer" to get me interested in learning more. I enjoyed the book and look forward to doing some additional research on a variety of people who I didn't know before reading this." Guy Ball, The Santa Ana Historical Preservation Society, April 2010.
About the Author

If you're a resident of Orange County you might be surprised at the history you discover. Such as the origin of the name of Anaheim, or the personages you'll meet like Addison Pratt. A 19th century Forrest Gump, he was at the right place at the right time for some very significant happenings of the 19th century.
But you don't have to be a resident of Orange County to enjoy or want to read this book. Before I started reading the book I thought it might be of local interest. Not being a resident of Orange County, I didn't think I'd be too interested in the history of the county or of it's early pioneers. As I read Mr. Barry's profiles very quickly made these people real as well and put their lives and deaths into perspective.
The book is formatted very simply, very easy to use and read. It's laid out by cemetery and includes directions and contact information to each cemetery as well as a little history of the cemetery itself. The profiles of the cemetery inhabitants are similarly laid out. Each profile has a short synopsis of the person's life. I think the longest was a page and half long, but Mr. Barry puts a lot of information in the synopsis of who the people were, what they did in life and why they're included in the book. Each profile is ended by directions of where to find the person in the cemetery.Read more ›
