Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Jan 27, 2001, Updated Aug 30, 2002:
“This cemetery was the second cemetery in Spokane, after the first one, which was Hangman Creek cemetery. Mountain View was on the H.P. Reeves homestead and discontinued being used after 1888 when Greenwood Memorial Terrace was establish.”
“The area where it once was is now used as a residence. It was located on the corner of Tenth and Cannon streets, on the hill overlooking the Hangman Creek area.”
“In August of 2002, I searched what records I could find, which were not many because I am told most records were lost in the Spokane Fire of 1889. Listed are names I extracted from mortuary records held in the Spokane City Library.”
“There were many names I was unable to decipher, which were also buried in Mountain View. These were also difficult to read, so please excuse me if I erred on the spelling of some. After I found these I am convinced there were many more than I suspected buried in this cemetery. I would guess several hundred.”
“I am told all of the burials were removed to other cemeteries, many going to Greenwood and Fairmount Cemeteries.”
