On March 18, 2002 I visited the courthouse in Downieville and checked the Sierra County CA birth, marriage and death record indexes. The Sierra County Clerk-Recorder has birth records from 1857, marriage records from 1852, and death records from 1864. The early vital records are incomplete (not everyone registered the event). I did not check the actual record but only the index, which is available for birth, marriages, deaths, and various other county records. I found the following:


4/13/1890 Meroux, Baby Boy to Meroux, A J and Jenice [blank] (Book 1/Page 2)

1/13/1892 Meroux, Baby Boy Meroux, A J and Meany, Jennie (1/2)

8/13/1887 Meroux, Fedora to Meroux, Henri Joseph Rene and Bosch, Carrie L (1D/71)

5/6/1874 Meroux, Marie Louise to Meroux, Jean Marie Bon and Lelouedec, Marie Josephine Em (2A/76)

9/16/1903 Meroux, Wayne George to Teeter, George and Smith, Mary Amber (1A/52)


11/4/1886 Meroux, Henry Joseph Rene and Bosch, Carrie See (Book 2/Page 182)

10/10/1876 Meroux, Emma Josephine to Garibaldi, Joseph (A/323)

10/6/1889 Meroux, Lucie Marie Louise to Myers, John (2/254)

6/10/1896 Meroux, Marie Louise to Peck, William O (3/28)

5/15/1856 Meroux, Marie Louise to Bassleman/Bopleman/Bosselman, Charles (A/12)


7/23/1897 Meroux, Adolph (Book 1/Page 11)

1/12/1898 Meroux, J M B (1/10)

2/13/1900 Meroux, Marie Josephine Emman (1/12)

During a quick look at the Downieville Cemetery (there was snow on the ground) I found a plot with three gravestones (and two wooden markers "Unknown" -- not sure if the wooden "Unknown" are in the same plot):

A J MEROUX 7/23/1897 (age 32)

J M B MERCOUX 1/12/1898 (age 68)

MRS. J M B MERCOUX 2/12/1900 (age 67)
