Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Oct 18, 2006, last edited Feb 09, 2011:
“I found this cemetery driving south from Dusty on Hwy 127 about 10 miles. When the highway turns west, take the first right onto Alkali Flat Road, then another right in about 2 miles onto 7100 Church Hill Road. Continue for 3 miles, turn right onto Mud Flat Road, the church is on the immediate right, with the cemetery on the hill behind it.”
“This cemetery is considered to be in LaCrosse, but I did not get the directions from there. LaCrosse would be north about 6 miles on Mud Flat Road and west another 4 miles on Hwy 26, from the cemetery.”
“This cemetery is owned and maintained by the Selbu Lutheran Church. At this time the sexton is Kirk Wigen, 231 Churchill Rd, LaCrosse WA 99143. Ph: 509-549-3827. I gave the church and cemetery address above in case the sexton changes.”
“It is a perpetual care cemetery in very good condition. It may have unmarked graves, but I found no evidence of that. Judging from the stones this cemetery was established in the very early 1900s with the first listed burial in 1902.”
“I visited this cemetery on Aug 08, 2006 and read all existing and legible markers and stones, using a digital camera. “
