Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Jun 22, 2002, last edited Jun 15, 2011:
“From Hwy 395, just south of the junction with Hwy 292 (Springdale Jct) take a right turn (east), as you are driving north. The road is marked with a sign which says 'Cemetery' and dead ends at the cemetery.”
“This is the cemetery for the town of Loon Lake. It was in very good condition both times I visited it. I am told it was smaller at first, with additional land donated at a later date. The earliest death date I found was 1892, meaning the cemetery must have started about that time.”
“There are two roads through the cemetery, creating a middle section with another on either side, so I have listed them in these three sections. The north section is being developed and has fewer in it. In addition to this I have added the locations on many from the sexton files. Some only have a Block number, some Block and Lot #, some nothing. If anyone finds an error, do let me know.”
“There were several burial spots with no markers, and some very difficult to decipher. An asterisk * denotes no marker. These names with an asterisk were taken from the current Sexton files. Several years ago a fire all but destroyed the records.”
“A lot of work has gone into trying to plot the cemetery again and correct this situation. As a result some areas are left as they are, with no more burials in them, because they do not know where they can safely bury. This is mainly the middle or older section.”
“I walked the cemetery Apr 26 and Jun 20, 2002, using my digital camera. I have digital photos of most of the markers. Additional names added as found since.”
