Endangered Cemetery Report

Folsom, Sacramento County, California

Lakeside Cemetery (aka Lakeside Memorial Lawn and Lakeside Cemetery and Mausoleum),  is located in Folsom, Sacramento County.

I would like to hear from ANYONE who has family buried in this cemetery that were buried between 1850 and 1939.  I especially would like to hear from people who CANNOT FIND THEIR FAMILY'S GRAVES ANYMORE. 

If you have "lost" a grave of someone buried at Lakeside Cemetery in Folsom, please contact me off list.  This cemetery was also known as the Folsom City Cemetery, the Citizen's Cemetery, and the "City Cemetery."

A part of the "Citizen's Cemetery" was also called the "COOK'S CEMETERY" and later the "AMERICAN LEGION CEMETERY."

Contained within Lakeside is also the historic JEWISH CEMETERY (est. 1861), the original MASONIC CEMETERY (Est. 1862), the IOOF CEMETERY (Est. 1862) and the NEW MASONIC CEMETERY (Est. 1924).

If any of this sounds familiar, and you have family buried in what once was the PUBLIC CEMETERY at Folsom and you haven't been able to find the graves, please contact me.
