Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Aug 24, 2006, last edited Mar 16, 2007:
“From Pullman drive north on Hwy 194W, turn left onto Klemgard Road and continue turning left or south onto Story Road at the next T in the road. The cemetery will be on the left side of the road in about a half mile.”
“This cemetery was established in 1877 as the Myers family cemetery. The farm which it is on was later sold to James L McMackin, and it is still owned by his family, per Darin McMackin. It is on a plot about 50' x 100' and abuts a huge pea field.”
“This cemetery is still active and is one of a very few untilled pieces of property in Whitman County. All of the graves are still dug by hand according to Mr McMackin.”
“There really is not a town of Ewartsville anymore, but it is the closest community to this cemetery. It is about 12 miles west of Pullman.”
“It is obvious that it is cared for, at least periodically. It appeared to have most of the burial sites marked with stones, but it was difficult to tell if there were unmarked graves. There appear to be a few non-family burials.”
“I visited this cemetery on Jul 22, 2006 and read all existing and legible markers and stones, using a digital camera.”
