Miscellaneous Markers These markers are not in any given cemetery, most are roadside markers indicating where an accident occurred.

Baca Cemetery 20500 St. Charles Rd. South ¾ miles on the bluff over looking the Baca Ranch.

Beacon Hill - October 22, 1988 a father and son were chasing rabbits near Beacon Hill and came across human skeletal remains on the side of the hill. The Coroner and Sheriff's office were notified and responded to the scene. The apparent burial site that was exposed contained a cranial cap, mandible, teeth, humerus, ribs and carpal bones. Other items located included artifacts of a notched arrow point, shells and a stone bed necklace. The remains were examined by a forensic anthropologist who identified the remains as pre historic Native American, 45-55 year old male, approximately 5 ft 7 inches. Evaluation of the remains and artifacts were consistent with Woodland Plains Indians. Involvement with the state archaeologist included site inspection and dated this burial site to the 1200's.
