To reach Marlin from State Hwy 28, just east of Stratford and Wilson Creek, there will be a sign to turn north or left as you are driving east on Hwy 28 onto 22NE. Continue on this road for about 3mi downhill most of the way. Before you reach Marlin turn left as you pass an old stucco building on your right. After 1/4 mile you will see a Marlin Cemetery sign on the right, directing you left for a short distance.

This cemetery and town were originally named Krupp. The original cemetery began in 1903, long before papers were officially signed. Two Urquhart children were already buried on their farm, and later moved to the new cemetery.

The Krupp Valley Cemetery Association was formed several years after the Urquharts donated 4.2 acres of land to be used as a cemetery. The Warranty deed by George & Helen Urquart et al Mar 30, 1914. File #20114 in Grant County. Following this papers were drawn up and signed and the association was formed. (This information supplied to the Historical Society by Jannie Shell & Nora Cizik, grandaughters of the George Urquharts.)

There is a lone burial site away from the main burial area because some townfolk felt a suicide death required separation from the cemetery. George Urquhart, who donated the land, did not agree, so he had the grave enclosed in a neat picket fence on the south east side, inside the cemetery, and it is easily spotted, though it has no marker.

There appears to still be plenty of room for more burials. Not all of the land is fenced and platted for use as yet. This cemetery is still active, operating under a cemetery board. (509-345-2466) The cemetery was very neat.

According to Grace Kallenberger, in 1870, Henry Marlin settled in the Crab Creek Valley east of the present townsite. In 1876 Henry sold his stock brand to George Urquhart and his brother, who then founded the town of Krupp.

In 1918, during WWI, the town name was changed by the post office and railroad to Marlin, honoring the first settler to this area, Henry Marlin. The reason being the gun works in Germany at this time was named Krupp, and the citizens of the town felt their town name was not appropriate. The town still does legal business under the name of Krupp, but its name is still Marlin.

I walked and read this cemetery on Jul 15, 2004, using a digital camera. I am happy to share the photos I have. Those with an * asterisk I do not have a photo of. A few of the records came from other sources, having no marker.

Note: I have discovered that Find-A-Grave has taken this work I did an placed it on their site, without my permission.
