Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Nov 10, 2007, last edited Feb 11, 2011:
“This cemetery lies at the edge of Endicott city limits, on the west side of the road on the Endicott-Saint John County Road.”
“This cemetery was established c.1883, with the earliest death date in 1883. It was called Mountain View Cemetery at that time. I am not sure when the name changed. It is maintained by an elected cemetery board under the Whitman County Cemetery District #4.”
“I compared my reading with the sexton files and have added their locations following the way I divided it up. They only divided it into old and new sections. I used the areas between the roads, which I describe below.”
“Those entries followed by an asterisk * are those which I did not find and do not have a photo of the stone. Some of them had a stone which was illegible, or no stone at all. There still may be burials which there is no record of.”
“I have transcribed from the headstone readings acquired when I walked and read this cemetery, using a digital camera on Aug 14, 2006. I found this cemetery to be very well maintained and in excellent condition.”
