To reach this cemetery, driving south from Inchelium on Silvercreek Road, go past Roger's Bar which is about 25mi. When you get to Nine Mile Road turn left, continue about 3-4 miles, until you come to a big field on the left, on the edge of the cliff, turn left into the driveway to the old Jensen farm.
The cemetery is on the right, with a fence around it. It is by the edge of the cliff. I was told the Tribe was supposed to put a road into it, but when I was there that had not happened.
The cemetery is maintained by family members who come by and clean it out when they get a chance to visit. This year it was Byron Wing who cleaned it and he also was my guide to the cemetery.
I visited and read this cemetery on Jul 12, 2003, using my digital camera, so have a photo I will share of each headstone. There are several burial sites without a marker or some have a wooden or cement cross with no legible engraving on it. ~ Maggie Rail
