Driving north on Hwy #6 just as you get through Emida, turn right at first road, Blackwell RR Lane, continue for .2 mi. The gate will be in front of you as you come to a crossroads.

This small town cemetery is owned by a Benewah County District. It seems to receive no care at all, so the townfolks are trying to work on it and bring it back. They have cleaned it up a great deal since I was there last year. Some have donated more land and are placing a new fence around it in the back area of the cemetery.

This cemetery seems to have started in the late 1800s with the earliest burial listed below being in 1892. There may be other earlier burials. I was told the name of the town comes from the start of the surnames of three early settlers to this area. East, Middleton and Dawson.

There are several unmarked graves, or markers which no longer can be read. If anyone knows of a name which should be included here please contact me or Terrie Hills and it will be added. In time it is hoped markers will be over all the burial sites.

I walked this cemetery on Apr 22, 2005, using my digital camera. I have a photo for all listings except those followed by an * asterisk.
