Current and planned projects

for the historic pioneer cemeteries

in Amador County, California


Pine Grove Cemetery:

Currently we have one member researching all the 20th century burials in the cemetery through a local mortuary. Efforts are being made in our "Who Was I?" campaign to identify all unmarked graves. Local historical newspapers and correspondence are also being reserched to identify unknowns.

Repairs to plots are carefully being made, keeping to the historic integrity of this shady cemetery. We have already placed a number of headstones where only mortuary markers stood. We have identified several previously unmarked graves and placed markers.


Aqueduct Cemetery:

We are in contact with two people who have relatives buried in Aqueduct Cemetery and are working together to identify all graves. Repairs to broken headstones amd curbing has been completed. The cemetery is mapped and tombstones transcribed.






IOOF Fiddletown:

This cemetery was cleared of weeds, brush and saplings threatening grave stones or curbing. The fence and gate were repaired. Headstones needing repair have been identified and repaired. Mapping of the cemetery has been completed and tombstones transcribed.


Volcano Protestant Cemetery

Weeds were cut, tree limbs threatening stonework were removed. Several broken stones were repaired. Further work is needed. The Volcano Service District will be handling that in the future.

Clearing brush threatening stone work and wWeed abatement are ongoing projects. We mapped locations of the graves and transcribed tombstones





Fiddletown Protestant Cemetery

Clearing brush threatening stone work and cutting weeds. We do weed abatement to keep weeds down and minimize fire danger. Broken headstones and damaged curbing are being repaired. We transcribed all the tombstones at this location.
