Anderson Family Cemetery
Yakima County, Washington

Submitted by Judy Schuster, Sep 27, 2000 [upperwenas@fairpoint.net]. Total records = 7.

This inactive cemetery is considered by many to be in Yakima County, since access to it is through the county. But it actually lies just inside Kittitas County, because the highway through the area is the county line and land lying on the northwest side of the highway belongs to Kittitas County. Gravestone inscriptions were copied by Mrs. Jan Weston, Mrs, Myrtle Steindorf and others of the Anderson Family on Oct 25, 1969 and were published in the Yakima Valley Genealogical Society Bulletin. Permission for the use of that published information was granted by YVGS on Nov 6, 1999.

The cemetery is about 2 miles West of the Naches Ranger Station on the Chinook Pass Highway and just above and across from the Pine Cone Inn. To reach it from the highway, turn right on Gold Creek Road and almost immediately turn right again at the first sign for 2-3 summer homes. The cemetery is on the hillside in the forest and is surrounded by a sturdy and attractive wire fence. It contains six graves and the enclosure is ornamented by a couple of wild rose bushes and a lilac bush and is carpeted with pine needles. The Anderson family lived nearby until they built their home on the land which has since become known as the Anderson Ranch.

I have not personally visited this cemetery, and I know that there has been numerous changes to the area since the cemetery was transcribed in 1969.

    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.
