We also cannot find an obit for Wyatt PRINDLE in a local newspaper, but do note he is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in Red Bluff in Section 3, Row 2, Plot 09 [date of death or internment listed as May 2, 1903.

In our Tehama County History Book [1856-2006] published by the Society, on page 102, there is a picture of the Tehama County Hospital taken ca 1905 with the following caption "After the first Tehama County Hospital which was in a home at the west end of Oak Street, burned in 1886, 26 acres of property on Walnut Street was purchased from Nehemiah J. and Sarah Smith and this new hospital was built in 1887 at a cost of $1,040. The building to the right og the hospital was used for several different purposes over the years. It was known as the pest house, isolation ward and later the men's ward. After a new county hospital was built on the property in 1937, Clarence Mendenhall, using his Caterpillar tractor, moved the men's ward further west to 20794 West Walnut Street and today it is the Westside Grange Hall."
