Neal Grave, Asotin County WAA few miles upstream from the foot of the Rattlesnake Grade is a lonely grave on the old Mallory place, now owned by the Bezonas of the Grande Ronde River. The area was once an irrigated field, but has returned now to grass. The marble marker at the grave has been turned over making it difficult to locate in the high grass. The legend on the stone reads: Elvira Neal, age 82 years. It has been stated that she died in 1885. She was the grandmother of the late Harve Mallory, and of Bertha Kiesecker who now lives in Anatone. It was believed that Elvira, who lived alone in the remote area, had been hoeing weeds in the field and was overcome by the heat. When she had crawled into the water flume to cool off she had died there. (Note: Bertha Kiesecker passed away 12 Jul 1991 - J.B.) NEAL, Elvira, d. abt 1885, age 82 yrs
