Cottonwood Cemetery
Gustine, Merced County, California

Contributed by Loretta Kanelos, Apr 20, 2000 [lkanelos@worldnet.att.net]. Total records = 74.

Many years ago this cemetery was abandoned by the Hills Ferry Cemetery District (Newman, CA). Many bodies were also removed to other cemeteries. Judging from the dates this cemetery dates back to the late 1800s.

The cemetery has been vandalized and only 4 markers remain on the gravesites, there are others laying in a ditch nearby.

I obtained this recorded log of the cemetery from Mr Mendonca in 1988. It is an account dated Sep 01, 1888. Many of the other documents of this cemetery were destroyed in a fire.

    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.
