To reach this cemetery from Ritzville, head north on Marcellus Road for 9 miles to Davis Road. Left (west) on Davis Road for 23 miles until Deal Road. Left (south) on Deal for 1 mile. Cemetery is on east side of Deal at Deal & Arlt intersection.
This is a very old cemetery, with not much available history. On maps it is called the Ammaus cemetery, but some today list it as Emmaus Cemetery, which sounds like it could have been a church cemetery at one time.
I completed this transcription of all existing and legible stones and markers in June of 2010.
