SJGS Cemetery Walk at Stockton Rural Cemetery

The San Joaquin Genealogical Society is going on a field trip!

A Cemetery Walk at Stockton Rural Cemetery

With Del McComb

Local Historian, Author & 4th generation Stocktonian

Saturday May 9th @ 1:00 PM

Why not bring a friend or two along for this rare treat as we listen to Del bring the past back to life with stories about some of the cemetery’s more notable residents.

To get to Rural Cemetery from either Interstate 5 or Hwy 99 :
Take the Crosstown bypass and exit on El Dorado Street.
Head north on El Dorado until you come to Harding Way.
Turn right on Harding Way and continue east to California Street.
Turn left on California Street and head north until you come to Pine Street.
Turn right on Pine. After one block, Pine Street starts to curve to the right. At this curve turn LEFT and drive through the gates of Rural Cemetery. We will meet at the Reuel Colt Gridley monument. As you drive through the entrance gates, continue forward and on your right will be Memory Chapel and the statue.
