To reach cemetery driving south then east on US Hwy 195, just as you enter Colton WA, turn right onto Union Street for 2 blocks, then right onto McKinley Street, past the high school. The cemetery will be on the south or left side of the street on the hillside.

This cemetery was established in the late 1800s, not sure of the date, but the earliest listed death is John Standley in 1879. I found this cemetery in good condition. There are many older areas that could use a bit of TLC, but over all it was in good shape.

There were illegible stones, but I found a few names when I compared my work with a previous reading done by Wes & Carrie Lartique, in Aug 21, 1973. Entries followed by an * asterisk are from their work, meaning I found no headstone or marker for them.

I visited this cemetery on Jul 22, 2006 and read all existing and legible markers and stones, using a digital camera. If interested in a photo contact me.
