KAMIAH IOOF CEMETERY

by Margaret Nell Longeteig

The first warrant is on record of IOOF Lodge, Kamiah #68, for the founding of a cemetery.  Fifteen acres of a piece of land, about mile west of the then town limits were surveyed in 1903 and bought of D.B. Keagg.  In December of that year, they built a fence around this and graves were moved in from out-lying farms.  In 1970 Floyd Doty, as sexton, helped Weston and Carrie (Teats) Lartigue in compiling these records, starting at the NW corner and weaving back and forth, row by row.  Later Mr. Doty checked inscriptions with his record book and came up with more data, which is included here.

Commendation should be given and gratitude expressed to Louise Knight and Beatrice Ruble for engineering improvements in the cemetery such as landscaping and planting evergreens.  It is a lovely little place of rest.
