|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Also known as Pioneer Cemetery, Boothill Cemetery orginally was located on the corner of Folsom Road and Douglas Boulevard in Roseville. According to a 1909 newspaper article, the cemetery had become very rundown and deserted. A fire a few years before had destroyed the wooden headstones, and only two stone headstones remained. Most of the remains had been relocated by family to other cemeteries at that point, leaving about a dozen graves intact. In the 1960s, to make way for construction of Roseville Square, the last of the bodies were removed to the Roseville District Cemetery where they were re-interred in a mass grave. A memorial plaque and the now one remaining headstone (Bain children) mark this spot in the Roseville Cemetery.
This memorial cemetery is located on the grounds of the Roseville Cemetery.
