FLETCHER CEMETERY

By Byron Bovey

Fletcher cemetery came into existence because of the growth of the town named Fletcher, which was surveyed by the government in May of 1896 and had settlers moving there by 1899.  The town did not survive very long because the railroad did not go close by, but it lasted long enough to require a cemetery and thus a monument to keep the name of Fletcher in history.

There was no record found that shows that Fletcher Cemetery was ever deeded to a cemetery district.  The only mention found about the cemetery in the Lewis County records is when Stacy and Lizzie Wagner sold the land where the cemetery is located to D. W. Shoun.  The legal description reads as follows:  The Northwest Quarter of Section thirteen (13) in township thirty‑four (34) North of Range One (1) West of Boise Meridian, excepting and reserving therefrom one acre of land in the Northeast corner of said Northwest quarter of said section thirteen, same being used for cemetery purposes.

Some of the information on the graves with no stones was obtained by Mrs. Iver Longeteig around 1970 from Mrs. Leatha Johnston and Mr. Charles Bartlett and from newspaper stories.  Recently, Mrs. Eileen Pentzer provided additional information on the Presnell Family.

It is thought that there was a plat for this cemetery at one time, and that it burned up in a house fire.  There appears to be room for about 12 rows of burials in the acre with room through the middle for a road.
