Peone Prairie Cemetery is located adjacent to and W of Bruce Rd., 1/2 mile N. of Bruce and Peone Rds. in Mead WA. From Division Street in Spokane drive north which is Hwy 395, turn right onto the Newport Highway which is Hwy 2 and continue north till you see Mt Spokane Park Dr. Turn east or right onto Mt Spokane Park Dr and continue about a mile then turn south or right onto Bruce Rd. The cemetery will be on your right in about a mile.

Unfortunately there has not been a good record kept for this cemetery until Jul of 1980. I first walked the cemetery, reading all of the stones, then I compared with the Sexton books of Peone cemetery which were up to 1998. I recently found out this area used to be called Dean WA.

On Aug 10, 1999 I completed a new physical survey of this cemetery, combining my readings with the 1998 transcription. If there was a difference in the readings, I went with the headstone or made a note of it when it was not evident which was correct. Transcribed and compiled 1999-2005.

I read the cemetery again on Apr 30, 2005, this time with a digital camera. I have a photo of each headstone. I found many of the old stones have been replaced with new stones, changing the reading I had the first time. In some cases they only used the year and I have the full date. I try to only list the headstone reading, but since this does include the the locations on some from the sexton files, and some of the dates. I left what was there before on the names. I also checked with the Sexton files up to Mar 01, 2012 and added any I did not find a marker for. These are followed by an * asterisk.
