Transcribed from "Columbia River Cemeteries", a record of individuals moved from the banks of the Columbia River to make way for the rising flood waters of Lake Roosevelt, published in the 1976 book, "Stevens County Tombstone Inscriptions" by EWGS, Spokane WA., who acquired this record from the Spokane Garry Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution.

It lists the place they were moved to as, New Keller Cemetery, but the name the cemetery goes by now is San Poil Cemetery #1081.

This cemetery is now located underneath the Columbia River. In approximately 1939-40, after the Grand Coulee Dam was built, the waters were raised, thus flooding the cemetery. Before the waters were raised, the Bureau of Reclamation, of the U.S. Department of the Interior, was responsible for relocating the burials. Ball & Dodd was hired to do the removals. Note the location of Felicite Cemetery, it is #8 on Ball & Dodd Map.

"M/T" means "moved to", and the Plot numbers refer to the location in the new cemetery.
