Hi - Sadly there are no markers. I've walked the entire area before. Everything is overgrown and it appears that it was used as a construction dumping ground in years past as there are large berms throughout. Regards, Phyllis

Calaveras County Hospital Cemetery
The graves in the Calaveras County Hospital Cemetery were not marked except by a rock at the head of each plot. The only actual grave marker is for Mr. Evans whose parents erected it a few years after his death. The people buried there were usually paupers with no family to bury them and no funds left when they died to pay the cost.
There is no way to know which plot holds which person since there are no burial records that were saved after the hospital closed down. After the closure of the hospital, paupers were buried in established cemeteries at county cost, but the county did not pay for markers only for burial.

I walked the older part of the York Road Cemetery this morning. Although I found several Samuels and one Magdelena, none were in the date range on your request. There are gaps in the rows, it could be because of the age, the stone is either buried or gone.

Maria and Samuel Bechtel
I think the maria Bechtel you have a photo request for may already be entered as #35413782. See her husband Samuel as well.

I visited the cemetery this afternoon.

I took a picture of a gravestone that has
Rachel on it but I could not make anything else.
The word "daughter" may be on it but even that is a maybe....

There is a description of this cemetery on - see

The woman did her survey in 2006 and I am sad to say it is getting worse. Her count is 167 people
which includes six Rachels.

I can send my photo along as an attachment and you can use it as you see fit.
