Capay Cemetery is about a mile west of Esparto. From Esparto, drive west on State Route 16, turn south on County Road 85B and drive west to the cemetery on County Road 22.
A plaque in the cemetery reads: "These grounds hold the graves of pioneer settlers in the Capay Valley and Lamb Valley and those of Esparto's early families. Established in 1876 by the trustees of Capay Lodge no. 230 Independent Order of Odd Fellows, it was the first public cemetery serving Capay Valley". The cemetery is still in use and in good condition.
A complete cemetery record, including interments with missing headstones, can be found on a CD at the Esparto public library.
This list was compiled from all existing and legible grave markers. I visited the cemetery in Feb and Mar of 2006.
