I have looked for newspapers, and have noted that no newspapers exist in Mason County for the years 1884 and 1886. My ancestor Carl GUMBEL died 23 November 1884 and is buried at Zion Cemetery near Bishop. Another ancestor, Anna Margarethe NUHN died 28 October 1886 and is buried at the same cemetery. I need obituaries for both. If it is true that no newspapers exist now, were there any published at that time, that have been lost? Does anyone have obits for either or both of these people?
