The land for the cemetery was deeded to the town by a John Purcell. Anybody who became a resident of Purissima was offered burial at no cost to their loved ones. Supposedly their are 62 graves hidden up on this overlooking the ocean but I heard their may be as many as 200 graves most of them unmarked or under very heavy vegetation. Many of the people buried here died in epidemics some even in severe floods that struck the area back in 1862 while its even possible Spaniards from the Portola expedition may also be buried nearby. Really when you think about it all that remains of the town is this cemetery. Their is a strange story told besides it being haunted that back in the 1800's a boy had gotten very ill and supposedly his parents buried him prematurely because he slipped into a coma. Worried they exhumed the casket only to find that the body had been turned over. This is a very difficult cemetery to navigate overgrown by the rain forest with vines, brush, thorns and even a few drop-offs with no bottom in site. I ended up injuring myself during this exploration fell on my organs hard almost had to go to the emergency room for internal bruising and busted ribs. But I did manage to finish off my research here a cemetery so very few ever have gotten to see and perhaps one of the oldest graveyards in San Mateo County California.
