Sheahan (Old Thornton) Cemetery
Whitman County, Washington

Contributed by Richard Morgan, Aug 09, 2000 [moric@colfax.com]. Visit Richard's Homepage. Total records = 13.

To reach the Old Thornton Cemetery take Old Thornton Hwy about 1/4 mile South of Thornton. It is west in the field belonging to Roger Henning. I was told there could be as many as 15 stones here, I found 11. Some graves have been moved to New Thornton Cemetery, with or without stones.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
