|Message||I am researching the history of Sonora, Barcelona, and Ray. I am interested in any documents or oral histories about the life of the miners including the early years (1910's), the growth years, and the closing of the towns in the 1960's. I have located Sanborn Fire Maps of Sonora and Ray from the early 1900's.|

|Message||In the late 40's and early 50's I attended Washington Elementary in Sonora from Kinder to 3rd grade. We then moved to Ray where I attended Lincoln school for 4th and 5th grades. After spending several years in Los Angeles, I retired and returned to AZ. How sad it is to realize that Sonora is no longer there. I remember St. Helen's where I made my first communion, but if anyone should have a map of the layout it would help my memories a lot more. Living in that little village were the best years of my life.|
