Marin County Cemetery Records Vol. 4 - Marin County Poor Farm & Hospital Cemetery

In 1880 land was purchased by the county and a facility built to care for the elderly and poor who were either indigent or had no family in the area able to care for them. During the earliest years, a farm was associated with the building and those who lived there and were physically able, helped in the barn and fields. A hospital was erected and opened in 1913. A cemetery has been associated with the Marin County Farm/Hospital since the beginning. Many records were kept and are now housed in the California Room at the Marin County Library in the Civic Center; other burials were gleaned from undertaker's records, the Stephen Eden funeral register, burial permits, and a couple of notices from the newspaper. This cemetery has never had stones to mark the graves.  Burials began in 1880 and the last were in the 1960s.
