Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Sacramento, California and lived there for 56 years until I retired in 2013. I now live in the Texas Hill Country.

The Old Historic Sacramento City Cemetery is not only a historical landmark, it is a beautiful place to visit. The best time to visit the cemetery is in the Spring time when all the flowers are in bloom. If you love old cemeteries, i'm sure you would enjoy looking at the Old Historic Sacramento City Cemetery Photo Gallery on my family website.

My profile picture is a picture of the stained glass window in the John Watt mausoleum.

Over the years, the toombstones and monuments at the Old Historic Sacramento City Cemetery have been vandalized and stolen, and a lot of the toombstones can hardly be read any more. Just take a look at some of the memorials and you can see how bad some of the headstones are. It was my goal to photograph as many of the old and decaying headstones so that they can at least be preserved in photographs on this website.

In creating the memorials, I tried to be as accurate as possible. I used the information on the headstone and the information on the Sacramento City Cemetery Burial Index ("The Marsh Index"). If there was a discrepancy, I did additional research on the internet. Anyone that does genealogical research knows that people make mistakes and that the records are not always accurate; mostly due to trying to decipher cursive writing. So if you believe any information in any of the memorials is inaccurate, please let me know.

I also look for newspaper birth, marriage and death notices for the people I create memorials for. Newspaper articles are a real good source of information, and great for linking family members. I used the California Digital Newspaper Collection .

If you send me a suggestion or correction for a memorial please provide some documentation or other evidence to support it.

Thank you.

Fannie Seamans
I noted the photo of Fannie Seamans grave,wife of Otis Seamans in Sacramento City Cemetery. She is located next to two similar stones and I am wondering if you happened to have taken photos of those stones. I would like to know if there is a relationship of those buried next to Fannie. If they might be from the same family.

Laura Richardson #73007118
Thanks for up-loading Laura's burial to Find A Grave. I believe her husband Soloman Richardson (1822 NY - 1909 CA)is buried next to Laura also in Lot 1579. Is there a marker for him? He is listed with a death in Sacramento 19 May 1909. Both Laura and Soloman are from New York. We believe Laura's maiden name was Simonds; do you or the cemetery have additional records?
Soloman's son Victor is Find A Grave memorial #27257366 (Latrobe Cemetery), Soloman's brothers Parson Richardson Find A Grave memorial #129134607 (Masonic Lawn Cemetery) & Demas Richardson Find A Grave memorial #98928100 (El Dorado Cemetery). There are additional family members linked to the above noted memorials.

Thanks again,

Do you know anything about a Raymona Haskell born in Nevada in 1866, father Dudley Haskell from Maine? She married Franklin Poore from Modoc County. Had a son named Dudley born in 1888.

RE: John Shaw
Did I ever respond to you. I am sorry if I have not. Your message was:
John Shaw
I noticed you had a photo request for John Shaw at the Sacramento City Cemetery, and that someone had claimed the request. I was waiting for their claim to expire so that I could claim the request and post a picture of the Plot where he is buried. The cemetery records show that there is no headstone for him, which I verified yesterday when I was there taking a picture for someone else. So I took a picture of the Plot where he is buried. If you would like a picture of the Plot, please submit another request.
