Pre-1905 Calif Death Index
Sierra County was created in 1852 from the eastern portion of Yuba County. Sierra Nevada in Spanish means "snow saw," applied to the Sierra Nevada mountain chain because of the jagged, serrated, saw tooth peaks forming the skyline. Territory which once was in Sierra County is now in Nevada and Plumas counties.
