Christ or Christopher ALDERSON was the first burial in the location to become the Igo Cemetery. Born in 1815, he died from injuries sustained when he fell from the roof of a building in Piety Hill, Shasta County, California on 26 October 1855. Having no family in the area, the tragedy prompted Mrs. Charles Nelson Kingsbury to designate a portion of her family property for a cemetery.~
