Ironton Cemetery
(Abandoned, it appears that there were only a couple of graves there. This cemetery is located on private property and the owner has asked everyone please stay off his land. - Darin)
Portland Cemetery

Red Mountain Cemetery
(Abandoned and unmarked,  Red Mountain Cemetery is also is on private property that is an active mining and blasting area.  To get to the area that once was RED MOUNTAIN you have to walk from the paved road about 2 miles.  Once again the owners of the land, the IDAORADO Mining Company say please stay off the land and the area around it as explosives are detonated randomly in the area and you could be hurt.- Darin)
Sneffles Cemetery *
(see note below)
Darin D. Foran  
*(10/01-Abandoned, no visible headstone markers. These two cemeteries are only accessible by four wheel drive and then by horse or mule.  It is a very treacherous event to get to the area that once was Camp Bird and Sneffles. These were two mining areas in the first part of the century (1900).  Nothing remains that clearly designates the graves in the two cemeteries.- Darin)
