Jameson Cemetery, Jameson, WA 98830 located 8.5 miles straight south of Mansfield and then one mile west on '5 NE'. The cemetery is located where '5 NE' and 'D NE' cross. The cemetery which is fenced on three sides is about 2 acres in size. Only two graves were found with one stone -- there are others (guessing 20?) marked with metal pens - some graves still having four pens while others had 3, 2 and even just one open left in the ground. The area has been overgrown by the sagebrush and other natural vegetation. ATTENTION: There is an UN-COVERED WELL on the grounds where the Jameson School was located.

Lee and Lena have one home made hand poured concrete marker marker for the both of them. At this time, the apple box form was still around the concrete. There were a couple of cans for flowers, that had rusted out the bottoms.
Obits are on file at the WAGS library in Wenatchee Fred Pflugrath finished walking the cemetery on May 12, 1999. From the appearance, I doubt if anyone had been there in sometime except for the county road crew. The sagebrush in some areas is at least 4 feet tall. Any misspelling and wrong dates, please let Fred Pflugrath know. Thanks.
