Mon Valley History - Cemeteries

Old California (Union) Cemetery, Washington Co.



The Old California (Union) Cemetery
     This cemetery was destroyed in the 1950's and has been in the process of being restored as a monument to those
     buried there.  See the Old California Cemetery Preservation Project Page for more information.

     In some cases, we know date of death and age of person, in other cases, just the date of death, so that is why all
     columns are not filled in.   Also, a list of  the veterans buried there is also included with these lists.
 

The Old California Cemetery, formerly called Union Cemetery, is located at 3rd Street and Boro Way, California Borough, Washington County, PA.   For additional information, contact the

California Area Historical Society,
429 Wood Street, P. O. Box 624,
California, PA 15419, phone 724-938-3250
