Driving Directions

Driving east on highway 50 from Sacramento to Placerville you can see the cemetery on top of a hill, on the right side of the freeway just after you pass the El Dorado Hills turnoff.

Cemetery History

This small public cemetery is located in the outskirts of El Dorado Hills, Calif. Unfortunately, there is no access to this cemetery at this time due to work on the roads, but later there probably will be easy access.

There used to be an old gold mining town there called Clarksville and there are still a few old ruins that you can see in the area. This cemetery was also known as Mormon Tavern Cemetery for a period of time.

    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.
