Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Aug 25, 2000, last edited August 25, 2011:
“To reach the cemetery drive west from Hwy 395 to Addy, continue on the Addy-Gifford Road for about 1 mile then left on Zimmer Rd for just a short distance. The cemetery will be on your left. It was 1.1 mi from Hwy 395.”
“The Addy Cemetery Association owns this cemetery, which was established in 1890. At the present time they have lost all the board members and a new board is being sought. I compared our readings with an earlier reading by the NeWGS, who can be reached c/o Colville Public Library, 195 S. Oak, Colville, WA 99114, http://www.newgs.org. When I took information from their work I placed it in parenthesis with an asterisk (*). If the whole entry is from them, the asterisk is at the end of the line. I further compared with the book 'Stevens County Tombstone Inscriptions' pub 1976, EWGS, PO Bx 1826, Spokane WA 99210, http://www.onlinepub.net/ewgs/. A double asterisk is on those entries**.”
“In Apr 2001, thanks to the assistance of Ruby Bartelds, I was able to acquire the Sexton files so have placed a triple asterisk *** after any records added from them. I also have deleted many which were duplicates. When I finished I have 5 less listings than I had before, with more people represented. Interestingly I have a few records they do not have.”
“If the information is in brackets () this means there is a headstone but the added info is from another place. If I have the place of birth listed, this came from Sexton files along with the location in the cemetery. The Sexton files do not have all listings, unfortunately. I still feel there may be more burials than I have. The plat map has about 36 names of burials which no one knows for sure where they are buried, all of which I have, without a location in the cemetery.”
Misc: Unknown, L-22-2
“The Addy cemetery was first walked and read on Aug 13 & 17, 2000 by myself and Vicki Morris. We found this cemetery in great need of care. Weeds have overtaken many of the headstones. From our readings I compiled our work on Aug 25, 2000. Re-edited, Apr 26, 2001.”
