This well-maintained, small cemetery is located on State Route 105, about 6 miles south of Grayland.

North Cove Pioneer Cemetery was established in 1892 , it was eroded in 1977.

At one time there was a community of settlers in an area that now is under water. It was these pioneers that are now relocated to this cemetery, again in danger of being washed away. There are 8 unknowns here, one stone simply reads "M39". The other unknowns are marked as such.

One man was found on the beach by Mr. Hook and a lifeboat crew in May 1897. One man was found onthe beach from the wreck of the schooner Nora Harkins on 15 Oct 1894. There's an unknown seaman from the schooner Mary Hawkens.

I didn't find some markers in the cemetery when I did the reading. These entries were "from other reliable sources."

    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.
