My name is Melanie, I got involved in this website when I was curious about what graves of some of my favorite film and music stars looked like. I have been interested in cemeteries since I was very small. I've lived in Northern California since 1987. I am a forestry technician and inspector for the US Forest Service and have worked in the Tahoe National Forest since 1999. Hence, I tend to know where to find some of these obscure little pioneer cemeteries that are hidden deep within the forest. If you have a family member or friend buried in Nevada, Sierra, El Dorado, Yuba or Placer county, California, I might be able to find it for you, since I've lived here over 20 years. If I have created a page which you would like to take over management for, feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to transfer it to you.|

|Sue||RE: Josephine Mine Cemetery Volcanoville|
I was a co-founder of the El Dorado County Pioneer Cemeteries Commission (non-profit org) in 1996. We began studies of all the cemeteries in El Dorado County that we could document exist or once existed. The second cemetery you mention is actual the Mount Gregory Cemetery, although Mildred Davis of Georgetown did a listing calling it the Volcanoville Cemetery #1. We have photographed the cemetery and identified additional probable or possible burials that might exist in addition to the three graves that were marked, only two of which are still marked. If you would like further information, please contact me direct at my email address listed on my contributor page. There are some things I'd rather not post publicly. Thanks for the permission to use your photo. I don't think I'll need a higher resolution for now. Best regards, Sue

Thanks for posting the photo of William Ogle's gravestone. I would like permission to use your photo in a research study I'm doing on the burials in what they are now calling the Josephine Mine Cemetery but which is the original cemetery of the town of Volcanoville. I have obtained photos of the other gravestones, but I've not been able to locate my old photos of what was there when I visited in 1998. Thanks for any courtesy you may offer. Sue
