This cemetery is 2.1 miles north of Hwy 199 on Riverbanks Road,
about 4 miles from Grants Pass city center. Turn right on private
drive directly across from Marcy Loop, through gate, turn right
into field, follow road to end.
Sloan Cemetery was established in 1853 and is now considered
to be a Pioneer Cemetery. The cemetery was active between 1853
and 1948, and many graves are not marked or have lost their markers.
No plot numbers are assigned.
It is located on private property with a “trespass access”. It
is suggested that you go with someone who has been there before.
This is not a rain event. From the end of the road, you must cross
open pasture, which can be very muddy and dotted with cow-flops
(and occasionally the cows, too).
I visited and transcribed this cemetery in the summer of 1999
from all existing stones.
