|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
(Cemetery is located at the intersection of NE HWY 99W at the front of a hardware store coop (Wilco). It is behind a brick wall and gate is chained and padlocked.)
Transcribed from location marker:
Location of the first dedicated cemetery between the North and South Yamhill Rivers. It was dedicated as a perpetual cemetery by Madison Malone at the time of his first wife's death in 1850.
When a death occurred the settlers nailed together a board coffin and a simple burial was made. When the first circuit riding preacher came by a formal funeral service was held.
The elements and vandals have destroyed early markers so records are incomplete. The names of 15 people interred here are known. It is believed there are about 25 graves in this plot.
