Moniteau County Missouri

California Potters Field Cemetery listings


Located along Highway 50 at the east edge of California along with the California City, California Masonic, Burke/Crown Hill and United Church of Christ (Evangelical) cemeteries.

 

According to obituaries and death certificates, this cemetery is considered part of the city maintained Crown Hill cemetery.

 

Several black people are buried here according to their obituaries and death certificates.  James Albin and Alan Sparks have found several news obituaries and death certificates of people buried here, as noted below. The pictures were taken in November 2005 and August 2008.

 

 

As can be seen in photos on the left and right, the stones are very spread out and undoubtedly more burials are here than there are stones. The middle left photo is a field stone marking an unknown grave. There are approximately 150 known burials with the earliest being 1878 and the last in 2004.
