Just past mile post 245 on Hwy 395, turn right across the Kettle River,
then left on east side of Kettle River continue for three miles. Turn
right onto a road up a steep slope.
This is a very difficult cemetery to find as it is on private property
and not maintained. It is off the Kettle River Road, about two miles
south of the Napoleon Bridge. The town of Napoleon is nonexistent today
but in the 1890s it was named for the Napoleon Mine.
Cemetery owned and maintained by the Green Mountain Cemetery Association.
Recorded in Stevens county Tax#2 book, p 163, in 1926. The cemetery
tract is 300' long north-south, 150' wide, east-west. Some refer to
this as the Boyds Cemetery and also Napoleon Cemetery. Land for this
cemetery was donated by H. H. Herr.
In 2002 when this record was made the cemetery was overgrown and in
need of care. Many grave markers all but gone. It has no sign for the
I acquired information from Keith Fine on Sep 24, 2009 for this cemetery.
These are based upon stones that were readable and from sexton records.
I personally made two tries to find this cemetery, unsuccessfuly, so
am excited to have these records to share. If anyone knows of a name
missing here, I would be happy to add if you have proof. There is more
than one unmarked grave.
