Contributed by Mary Garrison, Mar 11, 2002 [mycougars@adelphia.net] Total records = 38.

It is 7.8 miles west of US Hwy 95 on Lakeshore Dr., nestled in a wooded area right along Lakeshore Dr (previously called Fish Hatchery Road). You enter through a large metal cattle gate.

This cemetery is also referred to as the Morton or Dawson Cemetery. A two acre plot was initially set aside by O. G. Hossier in 1913.

This cemetery was organized by G W Dawson, James Campbell and William T Milliken in 1913. Most of the grave sites are against a barbed wire fence on the west side of the cemetery.

There were several mounds that were unmarked along the fence line. Five children are buried here that are unmarked and no longer discernible. The oldest burial appears to be Henry E Cook in 1927; however, there are several unmarked graves that may be older.

The tombstone transcriptions were completed by Mary and Nellie Garrison during July 2000. Information was also gathered from the obituaries and death notifications from local newspapers furnished by the Bonner County Historical Museum. Updated 07-17-2000

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.
