Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Aug 28, 2000, last edited Oct 23, 2009:
“To reach this cemetery from Hwy 395, driving west from Kettle Falls, WA, turning left or south onto Hwy 25, continue for about 1.7 miles. Turn right onto the unmarked Kettle Falls Landfill Road just after the cul-de-sac, the cemetery will be on your left in about 1.5 mile, sitting atop a hill amid evergreen trees. ”
“Grandview cemetery was established about 1895 as the Kettle Falls Cemetery. Today it is often referred to as the "Old Kettle Falls Cemetery" which the sign at the cemetery says. I do not know when the name was changed to Grandview Cemetery. This cemetery is maintained by the Grandview Cemetery Association.”
“After transcribing this cemetery, I find out there are two older Kettle Falls cemeteries. This one and another one called IOOF Cemetery. I have the deed for the IOOF Cemetery and it appears to be the second one, as it was established in 1913. Is there anyone who knows where a list of those buried in the IOOF Cemetery could be found, I would love to obtain a copy? I have found its location and it is apparently now underwater, being one of the flooded cemeteries from the Columbia River raising.”
“It was evident when we were there that someone is working on Grandview, to restore this long uncared for cemetery. A new fence and sign are completed, clearing out around all the headstones has been done, plus an area for commemorating veterans was built in the center of the cemetery with a special place to display the flag. There is a great deal of unused land available for many more burials.”
“A sheet hangs on a board at each of the two entrances to the cemetery listing burials in the cemetery. When I finished compiling what Vicki Morris and I read, I compared with this list. An asterisk * has been placed after any additional listings from this sheet. This means there is no headstone for those with an asterisk. I also compared with a reading done by EWGS pub. 1976, 'Stevens County Cemeteries', a double asterisk ** is after any addition from that work.”
“This cemetery was walked by Vicki Morris and I on Aug 16, 2000, using a digital camera. Any additions after that date came from obits.”
