This cemetery, also called "Coloma Protestant" Cemetery, "Sutter's Mill" Cemetery, and "Vineyard House" Cemetery, is the final resting place for many ?49ers. Among these graves are the remains of miners, farmers, merchants, tradesmen and their families, as well as murderers and prostitutes. This cemetery contains an estimated 400 - 500 graves. Many are unmarked; the wooden markers disappeared long ago. The oldest existing gravestone is dated 1850. This place was also the site of the famous double hanging of convicted murderers, Jerry Crane and Mickey Free in 1855.
