All signs of the small cemetery on Asotin Creek have long been gone. A stock
feed lot, owned by Erb Blankinship and rented by Jake Schlee, includes the
area where the graves are. It is located along the Asotin Creek Road on the
west side, about 1/2 mile south of the mouth of Charley Fork Creek, and
about 14 miles southwest of Asotin, and about 50 yards north of line fence
between the Blankinship Ranch and the Asotin Creek Game Range. (SE 1/4 of
SW 1/4, Sec 3, T9N, R44E, W.M.)
At the time the burials were made in the early 1900s, there was a school
house, the first Charley Fork school, near the burial sites. The late Fannie
Onstot taught school there, and verified the location of the cemetery a few
Claude Campbell, early resident of the area, now of Big Fork, Montana,
helped bury Bob Bracken there May 15, 1906.
