Search Winchell Cove Cemetery:

The Winchell Cove Cemetery contains some of the oldest burials in Fresno County. Soldiers that passed away at nearby Fort Miller were buried at the fort as early as 1852 and were removed to Winchell Cove when Friant Dam was completed in 1941. Burial mounds are visible, but only one headstone remains, that of Francis Steddum. An Eagle Scout project reserched and plotted out the over 80 plots, most of which are unidentified. The cemetery is located at Winchell Cove Marina on Millerton Lake above Friant, California. The cemetery is barely noticeable from the marina itself, and can be accessed by a one lane dirt road that dead-ends below it, and by a hiking and equestrian trail that is not very well maintained. The cemetery is fenced in and locked. There is no access to the cemetery itself, but you can walk around the fenced area.
