Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, 1998-2010, last edited May 28, 2011:
“To reach this cemetery from old Hwy 195, as you enter the town of Spangle, turn south or right onto Spangle Road and stay on it straight up the hill, and you will run into the cemetery.”
“As near as I can find out this cemetery began about 1894. I have not been successful in obtaining access to the sexton files, to compare my work with. I have researched and found additional names of others buried here, which had no existing marker at the time I read the cemetery. I cannot vouch for their accuracy or the accuracy of the stones.”
“This is a replacement transcription for the first one I did in 1998, which was a transcription from a book to start with and included additional names found in my research. I have created this new transcription in 2001 which comes basically from tombstone and marker readings.”
“An asterisk * has been placed following any entry added, for which I found no marker. I found these names entered into the following resources: "Gateway to the Palouse, 4th Ed.", by Nona Hengen, various obituaries and a transcription done in 1961, and published by EWGS, and various old death records.”
“If there is a difference with a record found elsewhere and what I have, I am willing to check the stone again and correct if necessary. I use the stones as the basis of my work. If what the stone has, disagrees with what is found elsewhere, researchers can make a note of that, I will not change what the stones has, but will correct errors I might have made in transcribing from the stone.”
“I walked and read Spangle Cemetery, using a digital camera, on Sep 13-14, 2001, and do have a digital photo of all existing and legible stones or markers at that time. After 2001 they are from obits or family.”
