California Historical Landmark No. 271
Is located along State Hwy 12, 0.7 miles west of the intersection of State Hwy 49 and just 1.8 miles west of the city of San Andreas.
Was formerly known as the North Branch Cemetery named after a town that once existed just opposite the cemetery. Pioneer cemetery
was said to have been established in 1851. Most of the graves are unmarked and stones appeared over only three of them in 1936.
Several people buried at Poverty Bar Cemetery, Amador Co., Ca. were reinterred in the Pioneer Cemetery. A marker was erected in 1962
by East Bay Municipal Utility District honoring those interred which reads:
CALIFORNIA PIONEERS REINTERRED FROM POVERTY BAR CEMETERY
"Mr. and Mrs. Calhoun, John La Plasse, Elva Lucy Drennan, Christian Kientz, Mr. Hussey, and Henry Christian Kientz ...
Were known to have been buried at Poverty Bar Cemetery now covered by the waters of Camanche Reservoir. They, and
other persons who were found in unmarked graves, have been reinterred in this plot."
