This cemetery is found on Telecky Road 4 miles west of Hwy 231 and situated about 6 miles Northwest of Edwall, WA.
There is no name on it so I named it after the property owners. There were very few graves left of the original pioneers who were buried here. If anyone knows of a name I do not have I would be happy to add them if you have proof of burial here.
I spoke with Mrs. Telecky on whose farm it is located. She says the reason for disbanning it was the rock shelf below the soil made it impossible to dig 6 feet for burial. None of the graves are that deep so many were moved to other cemeteries. There are some without head stones, but these still remain.
Earliest death date listed - 1889
Most recent death date listed - 1893
The following is what I found when I visited and read this cemetery on May 26, 1999.
