T1S R21E Section 11

Transcribed by Maggie Rail, Sep 15, 2010, last edited Nov 29, 2010 [mrail@asisna.com] Total Records = 102.

To reach cemetery, driving south from Arlington OR on Hwy 19, continue for about 15mi. Turn left onto Rock Creek Road for one mile, it turns into Upper Rock Creek Road the last 0.1mile. At the Olex postoffice, drive south 0.5 miles. The cemetery will be on the sidehill on the left side of the road.

I have not been able to find out the history of this cemetery. I understand it is owned and maintained by the county. I was given the following as a possible contact. Gilliam Historical Society for info Hwy 19 at Burns Park, Condon OR. Phone: 541-384-4233

The earliest burial listed is 1866, judging from the stones. There is evidence of many more buried here, in unmarked graves. If anyone has a name of someone buried here which I am missing, I would be very happy to add if you have proof.

My daughter Vicki Morris and I used digital cameras to read this cemetery on Sep 08, 2010, taking a photo of all existing and legible stones and markers.
