“From Nespelem take the Cash Creek Rd (C Street) east for 2 miles. Take the first road to your right, which will take you to the cemetery. As you break over the hill you will see a small fenced area at about 11 o'clock, this will line up with the cemetery further out in the field. As you follow the road you will make a left across the field for some distance, ending at the cemetery.”
“This is a small family cemetery with only one burial at present time. It started in the year 2003.”
“There is a gate to open before you enter/exit the field. When you leave, I highly recommend you drive directly up onto the highway, before you close the gate, the gravel does not allow for the short distance without possible problems, at least for me this was so.”
“I had to have assistance from Pete Palmer, who was driving by. Pete drove my car out with no problem. Interestingly, Pete was also a help to me last year when I was looking for other cemeteries north of this one near Owhi Lake.”
“Walked this cemetery Jul 15, 2004.”
