About the Speaker:
William (Bill) Pettite was a probate judge and coroner in Idaho. He has earned many rewards for his lifelong community involvement, including the 1999 Promotion of History Award from the Sacramento County Historical Society and the National Preservation Award from the Daughters of the American Revolution. One of his great accomplishments was to prepare historical information on some of the cemeteries in Sacramento County as a community service. One such endeavor was the history of East Lawn Memorial Park, located on Folsom Blvd in East Sacramento.

Come listen as Bill tells us about the cemeteries and people who are buried there, including Ancil Hoffman, Effie Yeaw, Newton Earp, military heroes, gypsies, and more.

  1. It was a very interesting presentation. I would like to see a similar presentation for some of the older cemeteries in the city.
