The original mission, named "Mission Vieja de la Purisima", was located about 4 miles south of its present location, in the city of Lompoc. In December of 1812, it was destroyed by an earthquake. Construction of the present day mission began in Los Berros Canyon, just north of the Lompoc city limits, on September of 1813. Persons who died during the construction were most likely interred at the temporary cemetery (refer to the bottom-most photograph).

Fr. Mariano Payeras, who had served at La Purisima since 1804, had been appointed the president of the California Missions in 1813. He is interred beneath the altar of the church. There is floor panel which is inscribed:

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
