Transcribed by Kathy Sedler, last update Nov 2006

Located approximately one mile west of the town of Wheatland, on Wheatland-Rio Oso Road off of Hwy 65.  Going past the high school on the left, there will be a couple of turns in the road. At the stop sign, turn left and the cemetery is on the right.  This is an active cemetery, meaning that burials are still taking place.  This is the only  accurate and complete list of burials available.  It has truly been a labor of love.  These records have been compiled, transcribed and formatted by Kathy Sedler. 

Wheatland Cemetery District - Superintendent Earl Simmons

Abbreviations used in my transcription:  c/o = child of, d: died in, d/o = daughter of, f/o = father of, h/o = husband of,  m/o = mother of,  n/o = native of, s/o = son of, w/o = wife of.

Sources: Original ledger/burial book  from WCD, California Death Index for verification,  and the mapping and photographing of this cemetery.  Obits from the California Room at Yuba County Library to verify dates of those without stones, as well as various death records.

Apparently around 1949, the cemetery sustained a large fire.  The wooden markers and the building where all the records were kept was destroyed.   Since that time the cemetery district has attempted to reconstruct their records to the best of their abilities.

You may use the following as a guide to locate the burials of individuals.  This is only a general map of areas.  When referring to the index, the numbers given below are BLOCK numbers.  The top row is toward the back of the cemetery, whereas the bottom row of this graph is toward the road, or front of the cemetery.

Explanation regarding plot locations:  Some persons are written twice in the cemetery burial book with two different plots. These are noted as seen in both entries.  There are also some entries that do not have a plot location noted. They were either blank in the burial book or are obituaries I have found which are not listed at all in the burial book at the cemetery.
