Grays Harbor County
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Directions to this location: From Hoquiam or Humptulips, head North on Hwy 101 and turn right on Donkey Creek Road. Go to the big bridge over Humptulips River, then turn around and drive back toward highway. About 1/4 mile from bridge on the right side of the road, you will see this down an embankment. It can not be seen when driving East, only when coming back heading West.
From what I had read, it was described as a cemetery. When I got here, I discovered it was simply a grave in the woods. But, I didn't have time to search further, so there could be more graves. I doubt it. All I know is this was the strangest place I've ever found a grave. My guess was that this lady died here.
Next time I'm out this way, I'm going to search a little more and see if there are other graves.
I can say one thing, for a lady who died in 1887, this was a highly decorated grave site.
