YUBA COUNTY CEMETERIES
Long Bar Township Cemeteries
The historic Township of Long Bar was located on the north side of the Yuba River adjacent to Browns Valley and just south of State Highway 20. Long Bar Township was established in October 1849 and by mid 1850 was a bustling town. Long Bar met its demise when debris from hydraulic mining washed down the Yuba River and covered the town.
At present, there are two distinct cemeteries for the Township of Long Bar. The most westerly one has been designated #1 and the easterly one is #2. Both are located on the Sunwest Properties sub-division and are within the Browns Valley Cemetery District.
Cemetery #1 is of unknown size, but at least six graves were found. Only one of the burials is known at this time.

Cemetery #2 is presently 96' by 115' and is situated on top of a plateau in the middle of a scoured riverbed. How large it was is unknown. There are two known burials at this time, but at least 26 other unknown burials.

Seavey, Thomas; died 14 Oct 1862, age 48 - a regular white marble headstone.
