J.M. Loring(gender ?)
Born:17 Jan 1824Sterling, Massachusetts
Died:15 June 1872 Shaw's Flat, California
The cemetery is in Columbia, Tuolumne Co., California
If this is your ancestor, this person probably came to Columbia for the Gold Rush in 1848.Columbia is a very historic little town and was a gold mining town.
I have no further info but would love to know if this info has helped anyone out.
