The next Talk and Tours, sponsored by FOCUS on Marysville, will happen April 6 at 10 a.m. The topic will be The Murphy Sisters.

The Murphy sisters were survivors of the ill-fated Donner Party of 1845-46.  They left everything behind except their families to begin a new life in Sunny California.  These young strong women lived through tragedies all along the way.

 They still had the courage to begin a new  home in a place named after the youngest sister Mary. Come hear the story about these three founding sisters of Marysville; Sarah, Harriet and Mary Murphy. 

This event will happen at the Yuba County Library in Historical Marysville. Space is limited. Donation is $10. For more information, call Sue Cejner-Moyers at 742-6508.
