|Bellevue Pioneer Cemetery (Defunct)|
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
In 1892 five acres were set aside by the Jesse B Warren family for use as a cemetery. In 1955 the cemetery was deeded to the Bellevue Masons. By that time at least 200 had been buried there. In 1970 thirty six known and at least thirty six unknowns were relocated to Sunset Hills Memorial Park in Bellevue.
The Bellevue Pioneer Cemetery site at 1551-116th NE is now an office complex.
I have been gathering info about that cemetery for years and years! Back in the 1980's a few of us here in Bellevue interviewed those who we could find who were descendents of any of those buried in this cemetery.
