RE: home cemetery location
Glad I could help. As the granddaughter of a monument maker, tromping through old cemeteries is something I enjoy. There is a small (in the woods but easy access) cemetery on Harstine Island you might like to visit. It's called Ballow Cemetery. There are a number of handmade headstones there. Enjoy your historical adventures!

RE: home cemetery location
Yes, I think I can help you. I am not surprised you've had trouble finding someone who can locate this cemetery! As I recall, we had to pass through someone's private property or, at least, very near it and it is really quite hidden. I found a geographical reference and some historical information about it at the Artondale Cemetery Association website under "links".

It says...

Home Cemetery
Lat: 47 16.768' and Lon: -122 46.340' (About)
Owned by Peninsula Social Club Cemetery
Parcel No. 2709300055, which is part of a larger parcel,Owned by Peninsula Heritage Land Trust
Of all the Peninsula cemeteries it seems that the Home and Minter cemeteries are the smallest, with only nine recorded burials in the Home Cemetery and four in the Minter.
From the sparse records available on this land it would seem that Joseph Hieman on November 16, 1920, conveyed it to the Home Grange #701 of Home, WA.
Records further show that on May 29, 1922, the home Grange #701 sold the land to the Peninsula Social Club for $1.00 for the purpose of it being used for a cemetery.
With no active association to look after it, it has long since fallen into disrepair. The road leading to it is grown up with brush and is no longer accessible by car.
Parcel No. 0021263031, 2.46 Acres. T21 R00E SEC 26
Inside Home Colony use: 45 85 00 XXXX

I entered the following in Google Maps and it went to the correct location off 8th Ave. KPN...there is a trail through the woods and it is open to the public. The property owner at the end of the road is understandably interested in people who arrive there, but was okay when we told him we were just looking for the cemetery...You can kind of see the path from the owner's home to the cemetery in the satellite view on the's between the end of 8th Ave. KPN and 24th St KPN...

4716'46.1"N 12246'20.4"W

Hope this helps. I am curious about who you are researching if you're willing to share.

Forgot to say: All the quotes on the marker are from Alimra's husband's journal. He is Newton S. Todd

The picture you have as being in Calvary Cemetery is a picture of the Marker I bought and paid for and had placed in Gravelly Lakes Cemetery near Lakewood, WA. Please see memorial 13143661. She is my great grandmother.

RE: Tom Allison

Thanks for responding. I just took a stab when I looked for a Diane who took photos in the Seattle area. I received an email from a Diane who was working in Evergreen-Washelli Cemetery, who had info on my cousin Tom Allison, but her email came through Find A Grave and I was looking for her email address as I prefer to deal directly instead of going through Find A Grave. I have a photo of his stone on the memorial and I have added family and bio info too.

Thanks for responding and I may call on you in the future if I need help.

Tom Allison

Are you the Diane who sent me an email about Tom Allison who was buried in Evergreen-Washelli Cemetery? If so, please contact me at so we can discuss the dates for Tom.
