Sutter Cemetery (a.k.a. South Butte Cemetery) is on the north edge of the town of Sutter. This database is a combination of lists from the Sutter Cemetery Disctrict and an older cemetery reading by the DAR and contains all known burials prior to May 1999. If the note field contains "*1" then some or all of the information in that record is from the DAR list. The database contains errors, especially in the older burials. Several of the pre-1900 listings have burial dates which are off by 100 years, so if you see a single year after 1928 it might be a burial from 100 years earlier. For example, if someone is listed as buried in 1986 with no day and month, the burial may have occurred in 1886.
