Missing Bear Flag Markers

When we visited the following sites, we were unable to locate a California commemorative marker.

At some sites, it appeared that a California plaque had never been erected. At other sites, there was a base, but the plaque itself was missing. Some sites without California plaques had other historic markers, but they did not note that the site is a California Historical Landmark.
