“After you cross the bridge in Riverside, take the East Omak Road for about 4½ miles. You will come out on a flat and watch for a lane that turns left across a sagebrush field. It is another mile or so and one wonders if you will really come to the cemetery, but it is on the top of the flat hill, which is where the road will end. There was no sign to help direct one to the cemetery.”
“This cemetery is still being used. It has many more buried in it than are reflected by this account. Numerous unmarked graves, and also many with just a cross with no name. The graves are all decorated and maintained.”
“I walked and read this cemetery on Aug 17, 2003, using a digital camera and will share any photo I have with family.”
“*Information from Millie Joe McDonald previous to her death.”
