Sacred to the momeory of
William S. Porter
aged 46 yrs and 25 days

Here's his obit from the Amador Dispatch, 17 Oct. 1863:
"DEATH OF WILLIAM PORTER--the subject of this notice has been residing in this County since the year 1849 or '50. He was about 43 years of age: a native of Maryland but emigrated to this state from Wayne County, Indiana. He leaves a wife and 4 children now residing in that state, they having returned there in 1862, to mourn his loss. He was taken ill about a month ago with lung fever and died about 3 o-clock on the morning of the 15th at Amador City."

Many of the original markers in this cemetery were wooden. The city of Amador hired someone to clear the cemetery of underbrush and that person burned the grounds, inadvertantly burning all of the wooden markers.
