Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, July 04, 2006, updated Feb 09, 2011:
“To reach cemetery in Albion, take N D Street southwest turning left onto Albion Road just after the intersection with S. Standard Street. Just after you cross the railroad tracks watch to your left for Cemetery Road, turn left up to the cemetery.”
“This cemetery is on a hill overlooking the town of Albion. It was established as the Guy Cemetery on Dec 17, 1891, with a second addition established Jun 24, 1898. Earliest death recorded is in 1879. Not sure when it was renamed.”
“The gate for the cemetery is open Apr 01 to Sep 30 from 8:00am to 2:00pm. Other times by appointment, contact the clerk: City Clerk at PO Box 38, Albion, WA 99102-0038, 509-332-5095, by Fax: 509-334-5503.” “I was able to compare my work with the sexton files. The locations for the burials came from those records. If I had no photo I added an asterisk to the end of the entry. I also added a few names I found in obits and other records, not in sexton files. These have two asterisks. In parenthesis () not on stone, info from family.”
“I visited and walked this cemetery on Jul 06, 2006, using a digital camera. There was evidence of more burials, and I suspect it is possible I did not find all of the existing markers.”
