Militia Lists of Sonoma County, California, 1846 to 1900


Reproduced here is a combined alphabetical list for the years 1878, 1888, 1890, 1892, 1894, and 1900. In addition, the archives of Sonoma County contain fragmentary lists for 1846, 1857, 1862, 1863, 1865 and 1903. California did not become a state until 1850, and the list for 1846 was for a militia based in Sonoma, then the head of the Republic of California, a short-lived entity before California became a state. The 1846 and 1857 lists are included in the overall alphabetical list, which provides surname, given name, township and year in an easy-to-read columnar format. The other years, 1862, 1863, 1865 and 1903 are listed separately because they contain additional information including rank and date commissioned in some cases.
