Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Aug 16, 2001, last edited Jun 15, 2001:
“As you come from the south on the main street of Valley, keep straight north. Then as the highway wants to curve left, continue north and veer off the highway onto a street which will lead you right to the cemetery.”
“This is the cemetery for the city of Valley WA and is maintained by a board and volunteers from the Valley Bible Church. I found it in good shape. Headstones were very easy to read, except for any which were too weathered from age.”
“I have placed a generalized location for each of those I found a stone for. It is not the official burial location for them, but might help to locate them. In 2007 I added all of the locations from the sexton files as well. Those entries with an asterisk * and a location are from the sexton files for which I found no stone or marker in the cemetery. Those with an asterisk * and without a location came from an obit or previous reading of this cemetery.”
“Michelle Morris and I walked and read this cemetery, Jun 20, 2001. I used my digital camera, but did not manage to get all of the stones. On May 10, 2006, I again walked the cemetery and now I do have a digital photo of all existing and legible stones to that date.”
