|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
About 1848 or 1850 Captain Stephen Smith gave several acres for a burial ground for sailors who were drowned or washed overboard. It is on high ground overlooking Bodega Bay on what is now (now being 1936) the Doran Ranch.
Because children are also buried here I am to assume that the cemetery was not restricted to deaths at sea or sailors.
Information on this cemetery and its burials comes from the Sonoma County Cemetery Book that was transcribed in the mid 1930's
