Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Jan 28, 2000, last edited Aug 20, 2011:
“Pia Mission cemetery can be reached from 395 by driving east on the Pierre Lake Road, just behind the Barstow Store. Drive for about 2 1/2 miles to Gallaher-Barret Rd. Continue on for another 2 1/2 miles. The cemetery will be on your right over the hill. A sign "Pia Mission Cemetery" can be seen from the road, but the cemetery lies over the hill beyond the sign.”
“Buried in this cemetery are two Indian chiefs, Chief James Bernard and Chief Andre Aurapahkin along with one lady who lived to the ripe old age of 115 years. (Mary A. Paul).”
“This cemetery is often referred to as the Kelly Hill Indian Cemetery, not to be confused with Kelly Hill Cemetery.”
“Additional information has been added from the parish records of St Mary's Mission. An asterisk is following those from this record without a stone. Additional information is in parenthesis.”
“I visited this cemetery, doing a complete survey, on Jul 23, 1999.”
