It is a small, unkempt cemetery, surely with many unmarked graves. We have been unable to locate any information on unknowns or unmarked graves. When I asked at the rest stop near Yreka, California the people who worked there told me that this cemetery is no longer taken care of. The headstones were broken, knocked over, and the area was unkept.
Earliest Burial: 10/30/1855

Latest Burial: 01/01/1940

Visit Instructions:
