Stranger Creek/Maud Cemetery
Gifford, Stevens County, Washington

Lat: 48° 19' 47"N, Lon: 118° 05'00"W
Section 30, Township 33N, Range 38 EWM.

Contributed by Bud Engelhardt Sep 01, 2001, last updated Aug 25, 2011 [budengelhardt@msn.com]. Total records = 66.

Go North on Highway 25 to Gifford, turn right on the Addy Gifford Road and the cemetery is located in about 6 miles on the Daisy Mine road.

The Maud Cemetery was originally called the Stranger Creek Cemetery. The cemetery property of one acre belonged to Mary Winings and was sold to the Cemetery Association for $30 on 10 April 1911, and filed on 25 Jan 1915. A small settlement called Maud was located close by and the postmistress was Maud Morgan. This evidently is where the name came from.

Bud and Virginia Engelhardt walked the cemetery in July 2001 and recorded the information from the headstones. This data was compared and compiled with other records found at the Spokane Library.
