Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Aug 06, 2007:
“To reach cemetery driving north out of Pullman on Hwy 27, turn right or east onto Viola Road and continue under the viaduct for 1.5 miles to Old Barn Road, which intersects on the left at 5190 Viola Road. Turn right here onto a lane through the wheatfield, which will lead you up and around to the right and to the cemetery at the top of the hill.”
“The Coleman Cemetery was established as the Coleman Cemetery in 1867 according to the entrance sign, and it was incorporated in 1911. It gets minimal care and was in great need of cleaning out when I was there.”
“I compared my reading with a previous record completed in 1973 by Wes and Carrie Lartigue. An asterisk * follows the records obtained from their work, which I found no marker or stone for. I am sure there are unmarked graves in this cemetery. If anyone knows of a name I am missing or an error, please contact me.”
“I walked and read this cemetery on Jul 21, 2007, using my digital camera. I have a photo of every existing headstone at the time of my visit.”
