The Idaho Statesman, 14 May 1933, carried an interesting article on the preservation of graveyards in Centerville, Idaho. Mrs. Ruth Ballard, member of the Boise Chapter DAR, accompanied by Mrs. C.W. Brassey, copied all of the tombstone inscriptions which were legible - and I quote "Upon inquiry, we found that there are two burial plots in this village, the one called The Odd Fellows Cemetery and the other, The Catholic Cemetery...the forest fires of 1931 had burned over both these plots, destroying all wooden markers or leaving charred remnants upon which no inscription was discernible. In the Odd Fellows Cemetery we found the following graves, marked by well-preserved stones:"Baker, Mary Ann, b. no dates, d. 03 Dec 1888, Age 48y, 2m, As a wife, devoted, As a mother, affectionate, As a friend, ever kind and true Beloved wife of Adam Baker
