was established in about 1850 during the height of the Gold Rush.  The Cemetery is still active and burial plots are available.  Our website contains a lot of information that we hope will be of great assistance to you and your loved ones for planning ahead for end of life issues.  Please contact us with any questions you have.



The historic Kelsey Pioneer Cemetery has been an important part of the communities of Kelsey and southern Garden Valley for 170 years.  It includes in its list of denizens many of Marshall's friends, neighbors, and mining partners along with many other folks who came to the area following the gold rush.

Plan Ahead

Planning ahead about one's final years is a gift for the whole family.  There are a number of arrangements that can be set in  place months or years in advance.  You are invited to check over the information on this page and take advantage of the information and tools that are provided there.


Our resource page contains a number of ideas, and forms that can be downloaded.  We hope that you will find these re-sources helpful, and also find answers to some of your family questions.  Planning and pre-paring ahead will lessen the burden of losing a loved one. 


Often times, not all family members, friends and business associates are able to attend the final remembrances of a loved one who has passed.  We have provided a place for everyone to visit and read a bit about their loved one.  Perhaps your family might want to post a tribute for your loved one.
