Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail (current as of November 9, 2009):
Cashmere Cemetery is located at Lat 48° 05' 32"N, Lon 118° 15' 41"W, T30N R36E Sec 22.
To reach this cemetery, drive south from Inchelium about 20 miles, on Silvercreek Road, to the Phyllis Banks farm, which is a few miles before Roger’s Bar, and is situated on the east side of Silvercreek Road. To reach the cemetery you need permission from Mrs Banks, and then it is a trek out behind the home, across the ravine, and up a hill to the cemetery. When my guide, Byron Wing, and I went, it was difficult to keep our footing. One had to dig a hole through the grass to the dirt then take a step, etc, or you slid back down the hill. I fell more than once and lost ground.
This was originally land owned by the Joseph family, but next to it was the Dick family, land adjacent to the Joseph land. Therefore both families used this cemetery for burial. Both properties are one now, and owned by Phyllis Banks.
There are perhaps a couple dozen buried here, but due to the aging of the markers and cemetery neglect, there is nothing left to identify. There are a couple rocks used for markers, a base, and a broken marker, with no writings visible. There is also one new marker. I did get the names of a couple that do not have remaining markers or dates. Cemetery is overgrown with brush, grass and weeds.
I visited this cemetery on July 12, 2003.
