Lucy, or how this came to be, part 2

I learned about Lucy Romero after I stumbled upon an historic inquest record in the basement of our county courthouse.  Lucy had been brutally murdered with a hatchet in 1862 and the inquest had been called to uncover the killers. 

In the weeks leading up to her murder, rumors had been floating around Arcata that she was in danger.  Her landlord, Sarah Preston,  urged her to leave the area, as did Sarah’s father, Findley Lindsey.  Lucy said she had no where else to go.  No where safe to hide.   

Learning about Lucy solidified the journey that lead me here.  And so the journey continues…
