There are two historic cemeteries in Drytown .  Both started in the mid 1800's.  Some graves are clearly marked, but with no headstone indicating who is buried there.  Some of the headstones have weathered and are no longer legible.  


St. Stephens is the Catholic Cemetery.  The tombstones were transcribed in 2004.


Drytown Protestant Cemetery is one of the oldest cemeteries in Amador County.  It is completely land-locked by a working cattle ranch.  Permission to cross the ranch property to visit the cemetery is restricted to certain times of the year due to fire danger.  Please contact a member of the Amador County Historic Cemeteries Board for more information.

 In an effort to provide the information about the tombstones in the cemetery, we have transcribed all the legible tombstones and photographed most of them.

Drytown Protestant Cemetery Tombstones were transcribed in 2004.
