San Jose in Santa Clara County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Dating back to early 1850’s, this cemetery was in use until 1920’s, when musician Ben Black, who wrote the then popular song, “Moonlight and Roses”, bought some of the mining company land at the Hacienda and divided it.
Bertram Road was cut through the length of the tract and through the cemetery over the tops of an unknown number of graves. After being tax deeded to historian Gene Vennum, he turned the Hacienda Cemetery over to the California Pioneers of Santa Clara County in 1974.
