De Ann is the largest cemetery in Nevada County. There is an old section south of Hwy. 371 and a large newer section north of the highway. An African-American section is also north of the highway, but some older African-American graves are in the old section south of the highway in the east part of that section. The cemetery is well maintained and is used frequently for burials. This is a record of the old section south of Hwy. 371. A part of this cemetery was once used as a potter's field for burial of persons with no known relatives.
