Carroll - Mc Govern Cemetery

Pozo, San Luis Obispo County

The Carroll - Mc Govern Cemetery is a small family cemetery located on private property at the mouth of a small canyon on the  McGovern Ranch. There is a broken wrought iron fence [ 12' x 20' ] that surrounds the area, many of the headstones are broken and missing.

There is no formal information on the Interments, except death records at the SLO County Clerk's Office. In the 1980's the South County Historical Society produced a little booklet "The Pozo Diary, Et Cetera". There is brief information on Pozo and it's history.

In the early summer of 2009, Foy Roberto and her Son Frank contacted me with regard to 'small rural Cemeteries' that were close to home and that had not been photographed, I suggested they take a ride out to Pozo and try to find the Carroll - Mc Govern Family Cemetery. Frank was able to take a few photos and has kindly shared them.

A simple plot map was created for the Cemetery. The above mentioned booklet has a page [105] that contains the names of the folks who had visible headstones in 1980. The links in the table below are headstone photos.
