Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Jan 2000, last edited Jan 14, 2012:
“Driving north on Hwy 395, about 15 miles north of Spokane, turn west onto Monroe Road and continue for several miles. Monroe Rd circles around the cemetery at 5800 W. Monroe Rd and 22200 N. Monroe Rd. The north end of Monroe Road comes out close to Deer Park.”
“Wild Rose Cemetery was established in 1885 in Wayside Township on Wild Rose Prairie. A plaque near the entrance of cemetery says, "Dedicated to Veterans of All Wars" Furnished by the American Legion, Guy Enman Post #156, Deer Park WA 1971.”
“At one time this was a thriving community. The area is still called Wild Rose Prairie, but the postal service has placed it into the Deer Park area.”
“I have found the cemetery to be in very good condition every time I go. It is evident that someone is caring for the cemetery. Even so some stones are quite deteriorated, making one realize that my list is not complete. Weather and age take a toll on the best cared for stone.”
“On May 27, 2005 I read the cemetery again using a digital camera. I have listed those entries in sections. There are three areas, running north and south with a road between each section. Those with no section listed are those I found no stone or marker for but they were in my first reading.”
“I first walked the cemetery on Sep 04, 1998. This is a transcription of all the available information, including additional visits.”
