In Ashton go east on the main street (St Hy 47) through town, one
mile. The cemetery is located on the north side of the road.
This cemetery was established sometime in the 1860s for the
town of Marysville. In 1906, the railroad wanting a route from
Idaho Falls to Yellowstone National Park, wanted to go through
the town of Marysville, but the townspeople did not want the railroad
to come through their town. So the railroad made a stop one mile
west of Marysville, and created the town of Ashton. The cemetery
was located between Marysville and the new town of Ashton. As
the town of Ashton grew, it soon surrounded the cemetery. Eventually
the cemetery became known as the Pineview Cemetery or some refer
to it as the Ashton City Cemetery or the Ashton / Marysville Cemetery.
The cemetery is a beautiful cemetery, with green lawns surrounded
with evergreen trees and is well taken care of. Lots are available
for purchase, contact the sexton, Leon Martindale, at PO Box 206,
Ashton, Idaho 83420, 208-652-3600 for more information.
I did a complete reading of this cemetery in the summer of 2006,
transcribing from all existing and legible stones and markers.
This is a work in progress
