Current and planned projects

for the historic pioneer cemeteries

in Amador County, California

 



Pine Grove Cemetery:

Currently we have one member researching all the 20th century burials in the cemetery through a local mortuary. Efforts are being made in our "Who Was I?" campaign to identify all unmarked graves. Local historical newspapers and correspondence are also being reserched to identify unknowns.

Repairs to plots are carefully being made, keeping to the historic integrity of this shady cemetery. We have already placed a number of headstones where only mortuary markers stood. We have identified several previously unmarked graves and markers will be made in the summer of 2010 for these.

We are in contact with two people who have relatives buried in Aqueduct Cemetery and are working together to identify all graves. Repairs to broken headstones amd curbing has been completed. (Feb. 2012)
