Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Sep 29, 2006, last edited Mar 23, 2011:
“Saint Gall Cemetery is north of Hwy 195 and can be seen from the Hwy on your left, as you enter the town of Colton from the north.”
“Saint Gall Cemetery was established about 1888 by the first catholic church in Colton.”
” Today the cemetery is owned by the Catholic Diocese of Spokane and is managed by a committee in Uniontown. It is under perpetual care.”
“The cemetery has three main sections, each of which is covered in with a well manicured lawn. The newest section contains only a few burials, leaving much room for future. I found the cemetery in excellent condition."
“I compared my work with an older reading of this cemetery done in 1973 by Wes & Carrie Lartigue. I found no stone for entries followed by an * asterisk. These listings came from their work and I cannot vouch for their accuracy.”
“I have transcribed from the headstone readings acquired when I walked and read this cemetery, using a digital camera on Jul 03, 2006. Some added from obits after this date.”
