To reach cemetery from Inchelium, take Hwy 122 toward Colville out of
Inchelium. The cemetery is about a mile further on the right side of the
Hall Creek Cemetery is owned and maintained by Saint Michael Mission
in Inchelium, WA. For more information I suggest you try to contact
This cemetery is on the Colville Indian Reservation. I was told recently
that only Indians and their immediate family members would be found
buried in any cemetery which it is on the reservation. This may be of
help when researching your family.
Many of those listed here, perhaps many of those without dates, are
removals from other cemeteries. I did some research on those removed
from the flooded cemeteries, and have added this information when I
found the record. This is the New Inchelium Cemetery referred
to in some of the records in the Flooded Cemeteries.
There are stones in the different corners of the cemetery in memory
of those unknowns who passed or were reinterred here, without proper
records. I feel some of these came from the flooded cemeteries.
I found one section which had many names I recognized, with simply
a funeral home marker and no dates. Most of these were from the underwater
cemeteries removed to here. I supplied the dates if I had them.
Some I have added were probably included in the burial of unidentified,
since with many I found no marker for them. One large marker has been
placed for these, as well as markers in the corners of the cemetery.
I have no record of who is represented by each of those markers.
My Granddaughter, Michelle Morris and I read this cemetery on Jun
22, 2001. I use a notepad and a digital camera to record readings from
the headstones or markers. The notepad is primarily for notes, and any
markers which will not take a good photo. If I have a photo that anyone
wants, I am happy to share it.
I have transcribed from those readings, plus previous work I did on
the flooded cemeteries, or old church records of Saint Michael Mission.
A few obits added since.
