Pioneer Cemetery
Hogan's Corner, Grays Harbor County, Washington

T18N R12W Sec 10
Lat: 47° 03' 23"N, Lon: 124° 09' 38"W

Contributed by Bob Stallman, Sep 22, 2001 [tombstone.bob@att.net]. Total records = 7.

The cemetery is located 7/10ths of a mile north of Hogan's Corner on SR 109. It is on the property belonging to Western Horizon Resorts.

The burial ground was discovered when the land was purchased in 1979. The Resort has done a fine job of restoring and maintaining the cemetery.

There are only seven tombstones remaining, but it is said that there are 14 crewman, their captain (William Irvine) and a bar pilot (Charles Johnson) also buried there. They lost their lives when their ship ran aground in a storm, January 12 1888. The ships's name was "The Albercon" from Maryport England. It is quite possible that there are other unknown burials.
