Eden Valley Cemetery

Transcribed by Maggie Rail, © Sep 06, 2002, last edited Apr 02, 2008 [mrail@asisna.com]. Total records = 140.

From Palouse driving west toward Colfax on Hwy 272, Eden Valley is about half way, maybe 5 mi, on the right side or north side of the highway just as you dip down into the valley.

This used to be quite a flourishing community, but just as with most of the towns in Whitman County, they have lost the majority of the population which was there years ago.

This cemetery must have started about 1880, judging from the headstone readings. Mary Fisher was buried in 1880, and born in 1796. The last burial I found was in 1991.

It is not cared for that much, but in some areas of the cemetery, the family comes in and keeps that area cleaned. It appears to have plenty of space for more burials, and also appears to have burials without markers.

I transcribed from all existing headstones, acquired when I walked and read this cemetery on Sep 01, 2003. I used my digital camera and have photos of all without and asterisk. Those with an asterisk * came from a reading done in 1973 by Wes and Carrie Lartigue. Info in parenthesis ( ) from other records.
