From Odessa head west out of town on hwy. 28 for about 1 1/2 blocks. The cemetery is on the north side of the road and is characterized by a memorial tank, flagpole, and chapel in honor of those who served in the armed forces.

This cemetery was originally used by a local church but has since become the town cemetery. The grounds and markers are exceptionally well maintained esp. considering the age of some of them. This cemetery is still in use today.

The earliest burial I could find was two in 1893 although their were 2 unreadable markers that may, predate them.

Carol Kniola, the deputy clerk, was especially helpful as she provided me with a copy of previous transcription done in 1984, by Harold Suchland. Sadly Harold passed away in 1994.

Inquiries about records of burials should be directed to the Town clerk, dclerk@odessaoffice.com or she can be contacted by phone or snail mail: 509-982-2401, 21 E. 1st Ave, Odessa Wa. 99159

I have transcribed from my survey of the cemetery, done on Oct 11 & 12 2002, and compared it with the previous transcription.

    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.
