Washoe Cemetery
Payette County, Idaho

Contributed by Patty Theurer, Aug 26, 2002 [seymour784@yahoo.com]. Total records = 26.

Located 1.7 miles SW of Payette, on Washoe road, in the original town of Washoe.

I have compiled this list partially from work done by Dora McKinney in Feb of 1943. This list was in the possession of the Payette County Historical Society. It does not completely match the one provided by the Idaho State Historical Society.

It is believed that there are between 25-30 people buried here, but due to extensive vandalism, only 6 stones remain that are readable, The stones of the Tharp children have been broken off and only the bases remain, but they are located on each side of their mother Fannie Tharp, whose stone still remains and is in relatively good shape. The stone of Daniel Kinsey has had an attempted repair made on it after it was shattered into several pieces.

The origins of the cemetery are still unknown, although at one time, the cemetery, and the property surrounding it, was owned by William H. Upchurch and his wife Adelia. I have found information stating that they deeded the cemetery to the public after their daughter died and was buried here.

I walked this cemetery on Mar 17, 2002.

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.
