|Barbara Crossler||RE: Sargeant Family in Vineland|
I've reread some of my correction requests on this family and see that I could potentially transfer to you. Please submit a Transfer Request through the "Edit" tab on each memorial that I can transfer to you. Also, please contact me offline of Find A Grave at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have other info on Sargeants that I'm unsure of.
|Kerry||Asotin County Cemeteries|
You posted a question to the Vineland page about why they don't take care of the cemeteries:
Here was your question you posted, and the reply from Vineland..
Why, is the cemetery district not caring for these cemeteries, otherwise not mentioned?
CEMETERY DISTRICT CREATION ((November 2009)(Resolution 09-21))
A proposition for a Cemetery District Creation was on the November 3, 2009 ballot in Asotin County.
The measure was approved.
YES 4,756 (72%)
NO 1,850 (28%)
The Board of Commissioners for Asotin County sought to form a cemetery district within the county,
following previously set rules on maintaining and operating a cemetery in the district. This will also enable the district to levy a property tax not to exceed 11.25 cents.
The ballot read:
"The Board of Commissioners of Asotin County has passed a resolution regarding formation of a Cemetery District for all of Asotin County. This measure would create a cemetery district in Asotin County pursuant to RCW 68.25.185 for maintenance and operations of cemeteries approved to be in the district. The district would be authorized to levy a property tax not to exceed 11.25 cents per thousand dollars of assessed value beginning in 2010. Shall a cemetery district, to be know as Asotin County Cemetery District Number One. With the power to levy property tax, be created in Asotin County?
1.RCW 36.04.020 Asotin county.
Asotin county shall consist of the territory bounded as follows, to wit: Commencing at a point in the channel of Snake river on the township line between ranges forty-four and forty-five east, Willamette Meridian; thence running south to the northwest corner of section thirty, township eleven north, range forty-five east, Willamette Meridian; thence west six miles; south one mile; west two miles; south one mile; west one mile to the northwest corner of section three in township ten north, of range forty-three east, Willamette Meridian; thence south eighteen miles; thence west three miles; thence south to the Oregon line; thence east on said line to the midchannel of Snake river; thence down the midchannel of Snake river to the place of beginning

RE: cemetery district not caring for these cemeteries
There are many cemeteries in Asotin County. At present, the only Cemetery deeded to the Cemetery District is Vineland.
Many of the small cemeteries throughout the county are on private land so the District cannot do anything with them.
Asotin Cemetery is owned by the City of Asotin, again not in the District.
Anatone is also on their own as is Cloverland and Lake cemeteries.
Hope this answers your inquiry.
