Re: William Orlando Bearse (Bearce) Maine and/or Mass. and California
The Early Records, Butte and Tehama Counties, California, shows his year of birth was 1856. That does not jive with the 1900 or 1910 federal census.

He was buried 13 Dec 1923 at the Chico Cemetery and the Westfall Funeral Home in Chico, Butte, California, showed his age at death as 67y 5m 23d.
No information on his parents there but you have a good idea, I shall order his Official Death Certificate from Colusa County.
Thanks for the suggestion!
