I spotted this site as I was driving south on Long Alec road looking
for the Curlew City cemetery. It lies off the road about 300 feet shortly
before you get to the Curlew City cemetery. It was much further than my
mind said it would be, through a barbed wire fence, which is not as easy
either as when I was young.
The burial spot is all alone on the flat of the hill, evergreen trees
on the one side and a field of grass on the other side. Someone has
built a fence around the lone burial spot to protect it. The headstone
is a cement rectangle with a funeral marker in the center top of it.
I am unsure on the spelling of the surname. The stone has Merrit and
the sign has Merritt. I surveyed this cemetery on Jul 19, 2001.
