Lower Antelope Cemetery----

The following information was furnished to the Butte County Cemetery District by Lillian Bell who had gotten it from the Mark and Clara Cherry family who lived on the old Bill Jones ranch (now known as the Soelberg ranch).

Two Indian squaws were the first ones buried there. They had been reportedly killed by a Mr. Lee with whom they had lived.
A Don Taylor twin brother of Doyy Hammond:
A George Stoddard:
Michels' baby boy . The parents had been on their way to Clayton with a team and wagon and had come through the Craters and down through Antelope, when the baby got sick and passed away:
A Mr. Bush, who was killed by a buck sheep while staying at the Goodman's.

These people were apparently buried there in the late 1880's as when the formal survey was made in 1912. The Cemetery was there as it is shown today.
