Inscription
Potters field at Alhambra Cemetery. Here, marked by numbered headstones the size of bread loaves, are buried over 600 poor and unknown early pioneers of California and Martinez. The earliest known burial was in 1853 and they continued until the early 20th century. Among those buried here are Chinese, Mexicans, Irish, Scots, Clampers of old, and native Californians, all of whom played a vital role in the shaping of our great state. May they continue to rest in peace.
