To reach this cemetery take Hwy 27 northeast out of Pullman about one mile. At Pullman-Albion Road on your left, turn right or east onto Whelan Road which goes east at the Y in the road, east of the Hwy. This will continue until you run out of blacktop and onto gravel road, the cemetery will be on your right directly, hard to spot.

The Whelan Cemetery was established in 1888, though there are earlier burials. It was used by the people in the small town of Whelan, which was up the road a ways further. Today this cemetery gets very little care. A new gate has been installed, but no care was evident in the cemetery. I found waist high weeds and grasses.

There are stones overturned, some with the top missing or hidden in the overgrowth, several illegible stones and unmarked graves. Entries followed by an asterisk * denote burials I found in a transcription done in 1973 by the Lartigues. I cannot vouch for the accuracy of these listings.

I visited and read all of the existing and legible stones and markers I could find in this cemetery on Jul 21, 2007, using my digital camera. If is interested in obtaining a photo please contact me.
