Taylorsville Cemetery

This picturesque cemetery dates to the 1850s. Within its hallowed grounds sleep many pioneers of Plumas County and particularly Indian Valley, some of whom are:

Jobe Terrill Taylor, founder of Taylorsville; Abbie Fort, African-American beekeeper and land owner; Dennis & Jerome Chapman, discoverers of copper at Coppertown; Robert & Angeline Flournoy, Genesee Valley ranchers; lewis Stark, founder of Elizabethtown; the Young Bros., early Taylorsville merchants.

To the north is a Maidu Cemetery, site of an early village, these peaceful people inhabited their valley prior to Taylor's arrival.

Dedicated to the memory of the Maidu Indians and the pioneers of Indian Valley by
E Clampus Vitus Chapter No. 8 Las Plumas del Oro and Robert Meacher, Supervisor District 2.
