Transcribed and compiled by Maggie Rail 1999. last edited Aug 26, 2016 [mrail@asisna.com]. Total records = 100.

This cemetery lies just east of Lake Chelan next to the Mill Bay resort.

It is cared for by the owner of the resort, William Evans who said it was never dedicated and really has no name. The following information was told to me by Mr. Evans on Oct 24, 1999 when I visited and did an inventory of the cemetery.

This cemetery was started, following the formation of a church at this site, by early Catholic missionaries, adding the burial place next to the church. In 1952 the church was destroyed by fire, leaving only the cemetery on the site.

The first burials were primarily the Wapato family, who are members of the Moses Band of the Colville Indians. In later years additional people were reburied here, displaced from other burial sites.

I walked and read this cemetery, with permission from Mr Evans, on Oct 24, 1999.
