“To reach the cemetery, take the first road to your left as you are driving north into Metaline on Hwy 20. It is up a rather steep incline, then keep to the left. The cemetery is at the end of the road. The town is small if you get lost, just ask someone.”
“The cemetery is owned and well maintained by the town of Metaline. When I was reading it, a survey team was working the cemetery; replatting it. They said it was difficult because there was no planning with the first burials. They were trying to lay it out with a better plan and still utilize the most space.”
“Listings followed by an asterisk * are from a reading in 'Tombstones Transcriptions' publication, 1976 by EWGS.”
“I walked and read this cemetery on Aug 18, 2002. This reading includes all visible headstones. I have a photo of each marker. There may be some I did not get a good photo of.”
