Union Cemetery

T18N R2W Section 34

Contributed by Suzanne Livingstone, Nov 17, 2009, last edited Nov 19, 2009 [slivings@clearwire.net]. Total records = 149.

From Interstate 5 (north or south), take exit 102 and head West onto Trosper Rd SW. Turn Left at first light (Littlerock Rd SW). Cemetery is on the right hand side 0.4 miles down the road, just after Mills and Mills Funeral Home and Memorial Park.

Union Cemetery was established in 1866. It is also known as Bush Prairie Cemetery. It is adjacent to the Pioneer Cavalry Cemetery and shares the same grounds and fence. Cemetery is fenced in and has a lock on the main gate, but there is a place to park a car and walk in. You can also access the cemetery via an opening in the fence from the Memorial Park.

When entering the cemetery these stones do not include the stones that are in the back against the fence or those to the right hand side (as these are Pioneer Cavalry burials). Be careful for mole holes in the ground.

The oldest marked burial was 1855. Cemetery also contains the burial of Charles Mason, the first Secretary of State for the Washington Territory. The cemetery is listed on the National, State and Tumwater Registry of Historical Places. Confirmed burials/markers with Olympic Genealogical Society

I walked and read the cemetery in October 2009. This listing includes only those visible stones/markers. It does appear that there are other burial plots with either missing or broken stones.
