San Bernardino County
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Watch for the Afton Canyon Road exit off the I-15 Interstate between Barstow and Baker, California. About a mile southeast on the gravel road lies the now ghost settlement of Afton alongside the Mojave River, a desert station on the now defunct Salt Lake Route (aka ‘The Clark Road') of the San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad Company.
Five grave sites are present above the station. Research in 2009 is underway to identify these individuals.
My hand-held Magellan GPS reads: 35 02.10N, -116 22.40W for the cemetery's location (using WGS84 as the map datum).
