Orleans Cemetery is located in the town of Orleans on Highway 96, approximately 100 miles from the Interstate 5/Highway 96 interchange.  Orleans is located in Humboldt County but is very close to Siskiyou County so we chose to include it here.  It is an extremely overgrown cemetery with many stones completely engulfed in giant blackberry bushes.  We were scratched, bitten and hot by the time we gave up.  The markers we were not able to reach will have to stay unread until such time that cemetery is cleaned up.  We did use the cemetery plot map to fill in missing records but no dates were available.
