Peola, Garfield County, Washington

The location of the graves is in a sparsely timbered area, some 50 yards to the west of the bottom of the nearby draw, and not far from the fence line between sections 32 and 33. Location: In SW corner of SW 1/4 of NW 1/4, Sec 32, T10N, R43E, W.M.
Early Peola settlers, John B. & Teresa Dick, homesteaded in the area in 1874. Two sons of the Dicks were to die here, and were buried on the homestead. There are no markers, and there is nothing to locate the grave sites now, but for years mounds of dirt were there. The land now belongs to J.F. Cluster. I have transcribed from Robert Weatherly's work, with permission.
