RE: Golden Gate Ranch Family Cemetery
The closeup picture of the graves under the tree with the wrought iron fence was at 
38°15'17.5" N 120°44'46.0" W
(you can paste that right into the search box).  That longer-distance picture with the oak tree and the gate you can see is the cemetery and the fence they built some years ago to keep the cows out of that area under the tree with the old wrought iron fence.

The Fischers' house is at 4101 N California 26, Valley Springs, CA (just before Paloma Rd.) and the oak tree with the cemetery under it is slightly north of the house, across the road, some distance to the east.  This is a house off by itself; Google will many times try to give you the 4101 on the other end of Hwy 26 in the Rancho Calaveras subdivision.

If you go to 38°15'22.40" N 120°44'44.70" W on Hwy 26 and go to the street view; you spin it around to look toward the south (over the back of the sign and toward the antenna on the hill in the background) you are looking at it just above and to the right of the top of the sign with a medium tree in front of it and a small tree to the right (view is blocked by trees directly across from the cemetery).

RE: Golden Gate Ranch Family Cemetery
Carolyn,

That request most likely mistakenly came from me. All visible markers have been photographed by Dennis Holick.

The family buried there are ancestors of Ray Warren. Ray married my distant cousin.

The ranch and cemetery property has historical signifigance to the County it is located in.

I live just west of downtown Chicago.

Hope this is helpful.

RE: Golden Gate Ranch Family Cemetery
Carolyn,

Cemetery is on private land and you have to get permission to enter the locked property. The cemetery entrance gate is across the highway and a little east from the ranch.

Do you have family buried there?

I requested the gps coordinates for the ranch and cemetery from the gentleman that took all of the pictures and will forward to you.

Hope this is helpful.

Sincerely,

Jim Killough

I noticed that you had posted a photo for this person on June 12, 2011. It was a close-up of the gravestone and it had a shadow in it. Where did you get the photo for this person at? Did it happen to already be on the website?
