This cemetery was put to use when a mother missed her daughter. Jessie Barber had relocated to Elk Creek from Oregon, and felt bad about leaving the remains of her daughter in OR, so her husband went south to retrieve the "casket" and brought their daughter to their new home. The aunt was heard to have stated that the girl was buried in her own trunk, rather than a casket. The family buried her atop the ridge on their property.

BARBER, Jessie, no dates, b. 27 Jul 1890, Whitcomb's Landing WA, d. in southern OR
UNKNOWN, It is rumored that an Indian Chief and a 7 year old girl are buried here. The 7 yr old could have been Jessie

    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.
