YUBA COUNTY CEMETERIES
and those in surrounding areas
Gone....but not forgotten.
Gone are the living, but the dead remain,
And not neglected; for a hand unseen,
Scattering its bounty like a summer rain,
Still keeps their graves and their remembrance green.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's Epitaph
Due to the increasing vandalism of cemeteries, I am committed to preserving a lasting record of the stones and making sure that our ancestors are remembered for generations to come.
These databases are extremely time-consuming to compile. Given that I am compiling data from every possible source, these records will be the most complete ever done in Yuba. Although it may be tempting for persons to use this data in a commercial manner or for personal or organizational gain, I strongly advise against it for legal reasons. My work will remain free to the public for their personal research in their family lines, obtainable from this site.
Contributors to Find-A-Grave have been unethically stealing these cemetery databases - primarily "Beca" and Michael Harrington. (Marysville Jewish, Berry Creek/Lake Madrone, Wheatland) If you see any other copyright violations, please contact me - firstname.lastname@example.org
None of the databases contained on these pages are donated or shared with any paid subscriptions sites, religious organizations or groups, nor any other organizations or persons. The cemetery lists found on this site are original compilations and under no circumstances, are to be copied, reproduced or used without my express permission and consent in writing. Unless I mention permission given on this page, NO ONE has obtained consent from me or the other contributors. If you see any violations of this, please contact Kathy.
I have compiled a comprehensive death index for the County. It is also updated as I have time.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I have not come across any of the Yuba Cemetery Districts who have totally complete records of burials. Records have been lost or taken by persons who have had charge of the cemeteries - and that holds true even for recent times. For the cemeteries that are listed below not in Yuba County, I have primarily recorded only visible stones. You will need to contact those Counties to get lookups done for those persons not listed.

A very special thank you to the Yuba Feather Museum in Forbestown for sharing the vast amount of research compiled by James Lague, historian, which has been shared with this site. We can never thank you all enough for your generosity.
Part of genealogy is searching other than the most obvious Counties. As we find burials of Yuba County residents who are listed in cemeteries for surrounding areas, we will include them here. If you have any you would like to add, please email Kathy.
Some persons will have stones/markers in cemeteries but will not actually be buried there. They may have a memorial stone in Yuba County for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they say "In Memory Of", but not always.
Many cemeteries are now "closed". This means that if you have purchased a plot already, have family members buried there, or live inside that cemetery district you may be buried there. Otherwise, the majority of the deaths occurring in this County are buried at Sierra View Memorial Park.
Lives are commemorated – deaths are
recorded – families are reunited – memories are made tangible – and love is
undisguised. This is a cemetery.
Communities accord respect, families bestow reverence, historians seek information and our heritage is thereby enriched.
Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are carved in stone or cast in bronze to pay warm tribute to accomplishments and to the life - not death - of a loved one. The cemetery is homeland for family memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living.
A cemetery is a history of people - a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today.
A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering - always.

CALCULATING BIRTH DATE FROM DEATH DATE - 8870 Formula
There are several websites which provide conversions, but if you are away from a computer and wish to figure out the date of birth from date of death, here is the formula to use: Example - Died May 6, 1889, age 71 years, 7 months and 9 days - 18890506 (subtract) 710709 (equals) 18179797, then subtract 8870 (always use this number), equals 18170927, which would equal a birth date of 27 Sep 1817. This formula is based on a 30 day month.
