Asotin County, Washington

Joseph Creek Cemetery
T7N R46E Section 35

This is a transcription of Robert Weatherly's work. Used with permission. The Bly area of the Joseph Creek country of Asotin County was (and is) a remote, mountainous area, accessible in the earlier days by horse or by boat to Rogersburg, at the junction of the Snake River and the Grande Ronde River, and then by horseback some 5 or 6 miles. A road up the Snake River to Rogersburg from Asotin didn't reach there until 1938. Remote as it was, it was a busy area with sheep and cattle ranches, and mining up the Snake River. There were three schools in the general area: One at Joseph Creek (Bly), one at Rogersburg, and another, the Cottonwood on farther up in Oregon.

There are also a number of other graves, but identification has been lost. All signs of the cemetery disappeared a number of years ago. A hay field now encompasses the area which has returned to grass. Many relatives of people buried there, as well as former residents of the area, have been saddened that all signs of the remote little cemetery have disappeared.
