|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The cemetery is apparently abandoned and no markers remain. View of West Side of Cemetery. At Hospital Cemetery, burials began in 1862 when a new hospital was built at this eight acres site. The hospital and its burial grounds were plated in 1891 by El Dorado County and they also required that graves be marked or numbered. A small slab of black slate at the head of the grave was required by 1896. In 1899 the Grand Jury recommended metal numbered stakes; records show this was done in 1914, but possibly earlier. Interments are recorded from 1868 to 1934 when the cemetery was closed, except for Doctor Samuel Steinberg, Sr in 1977.
