Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Nov 26, 2003, last edited Oct 03, 2007:
“When entering Uniontown on Hwy 195, turn east onto Blair Street, then left to Denison St and turn right, continuing on up the hill. It is across the road to the left, from Uniontown Community Cemetery and just past the Memorial Park.”
“This is the cemetery which is owned by the Catholic Diocese of Spokane and managed by a committee in Uniontown.”
“The land for the cemetery was donated by Thomas Montgomery about 1879. He gave two separate parcels of land, one for the catholics and one for the protestants to have a cemetery. Judging from the dates on the stones, they must have started to bury shortly after that.”
“Saint Boniface Cemetery is divided into four fairly evenly divided sections. I tried to keep track of all in each section. I did not try to keep track of the rows. There are some which have no location on them. I added the Sexton location to those if it was available, however not all had it.”
“I have transcribed from the headstone readings I acquired when I walked and read this cemetery on Sep 01, 2003. I used my digital camera and have photos of all existing and legible markers, without an * asterisk. Those with an asterisk * came from sexton files provided me by Brenda Dahmen. I have a photo of all existing stones at this time.”
“I visited this cemetery on Jul 22, 2006 and read all existing and legible markers and stones, using a digital camera. “
