This is Butcher Hill Cemetery, located just outside of Yreka, California.  It is a small, unkempt cemetery, surely with many unmarked graves.  We have been unable to locate any information on unknowns or unmarked graves.  To find this cemetery take the Central Yreka exit off Interstate 5.  If coming from the north, turn left at the bottom of the off ramp.  If coming from the south, turn right.  Stay on this road for approximately two miles until you see C. Meeks Lumber on your left.  Butcher Hill cemetery will be in the middle of the field on your right.
