Transcribed by Maggie Rail, Aug 10, 2005, last edited Feb 11, 2010 [mrail@asisna.com]. Total records = 166.

Drive west out of Deary for about .5 mile. Turn right or north onto Hwy 9 and continue northwest for about 2.5 mi. Turn south onto the Avon Cutoff Rd. The cemetery will be on the north side of the road at the intersection. The cemetery is located about .8 mile southeast of Avon ID on S. Avon Rd.

Avon Cemetery was established in 1889. The first burials listed in this reading were two in the Parks family in 1889. This cemetery basically has two sides or sections, west and east, with the rows running north and south. I numbered the rows from the center out.

I compared my work with a transcription done by Dorothy Schell in 1980. Entries followed by an asterisk * came from her work, showing I was not able to find the stone, or if I found it, it was illegible. If anyone knows of and has proof of a burial I do not have, please contact me and I will be happy to add to my listing.

I tried to show which side of the cemetery they are in, but please do not be upset if I err on some. Using a digital camera to read it is difficult to know when a row ends. I did not try to map the cemetery. I attempted some of the rows, but they too could be in error. In doing so it seems this should get one into the approximate area of the burial site. Many times the rows were so crooked it was not possible to know which row they were in. In most cases I should have the side correct. I left the side off when in doubt.

I walked and surveyed this cemetery Jun 16, 2005, using a digital camera. If interested in a copy of a photo you may contact me.
