City Cemetery No 1 is bounded on the north by Paso Hondo St., the
south by E. Commerce St., the west by Monumental St and on the east by
Palmetto Street. The main entrance to the cemetery is from East
Commerce Street.

The cemetery inscriptions were previously complied in the mid 1960s.
This edition updates, revises and corrects the previous edition. If
you have additional information regarding individuals in this cemetery
and have family histories, bible records, etc., they would certainly
be greatly appreciated.


There is a plot map of the cemetery. The plot map is scaled to a size
that is difficult to read. Therefore, a plot map was made using the
original as a guide. Many plots have been added since the original
plot map was drawn. New plots that are clearly defined have been added
to the original with a notation.

On the section maps, the original owner is noted. In many cases, the
original plot owner apparently sold their plot to another as their
name is not found in the plot. There is no way to tell if there is a
relationship. There could be. Therefore, the original plot owner has
been kept reflecting the owner's name on the plot map.

There is a later updated map of the plots for City Cemetery No. 1. On
this map, only numbers are indicated. It appears that the section east
of H is referred to as Section K amd Section D extended and covered
the section east of H in the card index file housed at the San Jose
Burial Park Office on Mission Road. In the extended section for D,
there are two indicated plot/lot 40. å There is not indication of a
date on the map.


There are 8 sections in the cemetery: Sections A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H.
Additionals sections do not have an assignment of letters but are a
section east of F, and east of H. A sketch of the cemetery shows the
different areas. A sketch map of each section has been included for
location of plots. Plots that have no visible stones are noted in
blue. Plots found within a section not noted on the original map are
shown in a light green.

There is a plot map for City Cemetery No 1 with the original owner and
number noted within a section. The plot map does not appear to have
been updated with change of ownership. On the data below, the original
plot number and owner is listed where available. In some case, a plot
will have a name but no number as noted on the map. There are changes
in direction from a north to south division to a east to west division
of a plot. If a plot was divided into more than one owner, the plot is
noted by using A, B, etc. below. There are plots in the cemetery that
do not appear on the plot map and they are noted, ""Plot not
