This is a very small cemetery located atop a hill, accessed by a short dirt road that is in need of repair. The cemetery is located above the Callahan Forest Service Ranger Station. I have arbitrarily named this Hayden Cemetery because most of the graves here are Hayden family members. To reach this cemetery take the Interstate 5 South Yreka Exit. If coming from the north, turn right; from the south, turn left, and go to the light. Turn left on the Ft. Jones Highway and continue to Etna. Watch the signs for a left turn to Callahan. Follow this another 12 miles to Callahan. Continue through Callahan and watch for the Forest Service station on your left. About 200 yards past the station you will see a dirt road on the left that winds uphill. Take this dirt road up the hill about 300 feet. The cemetery is right alongside this road.

|Hayden, Charles||1827||1919||Marilyn Demas in an email states: "In reference to Charles Hayden 1827 on the Callahan [Hayden] Cemetery. I believe that he is Charles Hayden who came to Ca. with Col. Jonathan Drake Stevenson of N. Y.'s 1st Vol. in 1847. This was to "settle the west" just after the Mexican War. Mr. Hayden has a colorful history and may be the progenitor of the Hayden family in Ca."|
