Burial Records: IOOF Cemetery Sonora, California  (1856 to 2018)

Most of the early burial records for the IOOF Cemetery in Sonora were destroyed in a fire, so I used various referenced sources to create this catalog. Corrections will need to be made periodically. If errors or omissions are found in this report, please contact Denine Urquhart, C/O IOOF Sonora, 10 West Dodge, Sonora, CA 95370, by email at or at (408) 390-7656. We are constantly working to verify information received from our sources.

Creating this catalog was a two year project and I could not have done it without help. First, I would like to recognize Sioux Levengood for her much needed assistance, which included many hours of legwork at the cemetery. I would also like to acknowledge Pat Dambacher, Judi Jones, and Karen McGettigan for proofreading and/or verifying information. I would like to thank Jeff Wilson and Brian Sells at Terzich & Wilson Funeral Home, Mike Heuton at the Heuton Memorial Chapel, and the Tuolumne County Genealogy Society, for sharing their records.

Second, I am grateful for the support of my fellow members of the Sonora Odd Fellows Lodge #10; Pat Congdon, Karen McGettigan, Matt McGettigan, Olivia Partone, Vernie Maszk, Linda Lesser, Pat Dambacher, Craig Dambacher, Judy Jones, and Joan Oliver. I truly appreciated them clearing weeds at the cemetery, as this made it much easier to find and read headstones.
