Location: Under the water. Used to be at the base of a hill overlooking
the Willapa Bay, but erosion washed the whole Islet into the bay. Bruceport
is now gone and belongs to the minds of the aged.
It would be nice to tell you that I saw this cemetery, but that I cannot
do. I can tell you that as a kid I visited the three mile strip of land
that went out to Bruceport. I remember cabins and small houses, a few
small farms and an orchard. All were taken by winter storms through the
years. The cemetery was bought from J.R.Champ D.L.R. #38. It was a small
plot of a farmer's land, and was difficult to locate. By the mid 1960's
there were only a couple of stones left. From other records, I have listed
what I found.
