Transcribed by T Sheldon, proofread by Gavin Vincent, completed 13th day of May, 2000, Location: Northern edge of Sec 35, southern edge of Sec 26, T15N, R10W. On east side of Highway 105, located at the mouth of Smith Creek. As the name suggests, this is a small parcel of land that sat upon a hill on the Almoran Smith land claim. It is said to have about 8 graves in all, but the stones were never put at the graves as they were too heavy to get up the hill. Mr. Dixon helped with a burial or two there, and at one time took a few of the stones up the hill with a steam donkey. Sadly, they eroded into the river with time, or toppled over the hillside. (One such stone embedded itself into a tree trunk.) There is no record of whom is in the cemetery other than those that have been remembered SMITH, Almoran, b. 31 Mar 1810, d.2 May 1875, age 65y1m1d, f/o Isaac, was shipwright(boatbuilder), arr Pacific Co 1853
