Contributed by Marilyn Poitras, Jan 26, 2002 [lavelle@zianet.com]. Total records = 17.

Hermosa was started in 1880 on the south fork of Palomas River. It survived until 1929.

This is a western style cemetery. No phone, no sexton, no perpetual care.

It was recorded by the Sierra Co. Genealogical Society on Nov 18, 1994 and used with their permission.

All known grave sites have been recorded. Many of the graves are unmarked. The cemetery is no longer used.

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.
