Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Nov 19, 2000 last edited Feb 09, 2011:
“The cemetery is located on the west side of Pullman. As you get almost to the top of the hill, coming out of Pullman on Hwy 195, turn left up the hill onto Wawawai Pullman Rd, in 1/4 mi left onto Main St.”
“In an earlier reading of this cemetery it said this cemetery was established Jun 04, 1906. There are burials as early as 1880. This says to me there must have been an earlier, perhaps unorganized cemetery established. It is evident from the headstones, many buried here were either a member of the IOOF or Masonic lodges. At some point in time it was owned by the local IOOF Lodge, but now is owned and cared for by the City of Pullman.”
“I walked and read Pullman IOOF Cemetery Jul 05, 2000. Then compared my readings with one done in 1973 by Nybergs and Lartigues. An asterisk * has been placed by any reading I did not find, which means there is no headstone now. My readings differed at times with theirs. I went with the headstone reading when this happened. I have digital photos of most of the stones.”
