Laurier is in northern Ferry county at the Canadian border on Hwy 395.
The cemetery is south of town about one mile. Turn left or east onto McIrvin
Rd toward Summit Creek. It is on private property at the first gate on
the right side of McIrvin Rd. One must walk over 1/2 mile to reach the
cemetery through the woods.
This cemetery is located on land owned by the McIrvin family, who maintain
a large area of the cemetery. It is also used by the residents of Laurier.
I suspect each family cares for their own section.
I found it interesting that it was not fenced necessarily as a whole
cemetery. Rather there were fences going in several directions, each
connected so it was all one. It was interesting to figure out how to
enter each section, as one could not go from section to section. Of
course there were not that many sections.
The walk in from the road was quite a trek, and I have no idea how
far really. I was tired and felt like resting when I was back to my
car. Of course I wasted much energy finding it. There was more than
one road to choose from, and yes I tried each one, the last one was
it of course.
I visited and surveyed this cemetery on Jul 19, 2001. This includes
all existing and legible stones and markers at that time. Additions
after that date were from obits. If anyone has a name I missed and can
send proof, I will be happy to add it.
