Cemetery is located on the very edge of western Lewis
County. The legal
description of it is "652.30 feet South, 128.90 feet East of NE
corner of Lot 18, Section 4, township 34, North Range three, WBM, Section
4, Township 34 East 270.0 feet, thence South 17 degrees, 47 West
a distance of 125 feet, thence north 72 degrees 13 West a distance of 125
feet, Lot 18, Section 4,
township 34, North Range three WBM".
The cemetery is
located on land originally owned by the Slickpoo Mission
and was eventually all sold by the Pioneer Educational Society of
Spokane, Washington, to Laurence Hasenoehrl, except for the cemetery
No plat exists for
this cemetery and there are, no doubt, many burials here that are not
known about at this time. The
priest records on the burials were acquired in 1994 and most of the dates
came from those records.
As of 1998, this cemetery is in terrible shape.
Many stones have been knocked over apparently by cows that were
allowed to wander through the cemetery.
Also the brush is very thick in places, and it is very possible
some stones were missed when this cemetery was read for inclusion in this
material. A new fence was
erected around the cemetery a few years ago that will take care of the cow
problem. The knocked over
stones and the brush will require hours of work if this cemetery is ever
to be restored.
