County Line Cemetery is located in southern Lincoln County near the corner of Bauer Road and Davis Road, 7 miles south and about 3 miles west of Downs.

It was also known as the Immanuel German Congregational Cemetery. When it was active the church was south of Davis Road in Adams County.

There is a gate at the center of the south side of the cemetery. The northwest corner is overgrown with roses, and when I walked the cemetery in the summer of 1999, only the immediate area near the gate was mowed. Twenty-nine tombstones were found visible, with other gravesites marked with iron rods, not crosses. Several apparent burial sites had remnants of wood with cans and broken glass. This prompted an intense search for burial records to document the other burials.

The Immanuel German Congregational Church ledger was located, and translation of the German was done by Rev Ernest Sprenger of Ritzville. Death certificates, mortuary records and obituaries were located by Irma Gfeller, Marietta Stokes and myself. These records were then compared to family reports and folklore of the neighborhood.

One family report could not be documented (to date), that of an infant female Kiehn, dying prior to 1900, and was not included on this listing. All tombstones recorded by the Lartigues in 1974 printed in Tombstones Inscriptions of Lincoln County were located. Lartigues noted that although the stone for Anna M Kramer (1892-1893) would lead one to believe the burial was in County Line, the stone is a memorial stone and the burial took place in Nebraska.

(no visible stone) following a name was used since stones could be hidden due to the dust storms of the 1930's, the perpetual drift of earth in a farming locale and the abundance of ash deposited by Mount Saint Helen's eruption in 1980. Available documentation will be provided to any request by emailing me.

I have completed my transcription of this cemetery on Oct 28, 2003.

    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.
