This is an old abandoned African-American cemetery . Only two graves are marked, but there are many graves marked by rocks. The approximate size is one half acre. I am told a church once existed near this cemetery. Driving directions: From Rosston, go west on Hwy. 278 (formerly Hwy. 4) toward Hope for about 2 1/2 miles. About 1/4 mile past Rd. 36, there is a logging road leaving the highway to the left in a curve. The cemetery is down this road about 1/4 mile on the left side of the road.
References to an "earlier record" usually refer to a survey conducted in the 1950's by
the Nevada County Extension Homemakers' Clubs, the original of which is on file at the
Nevada County Depot and Museum.
Since 1997, Jery and Jeanie McKelvy have conducted a periodic canvas of each cemetery in
the county and use additional resources to keep the listings current.
