Saar Pioneer Cemetery is just off Highway 167 at the South 212th exit. If heading north on Highway 167 take the South 212th exit. The exit ramp takes you to a light. If you go straight you’ll be at WinCo Foods. To reach the cemetery take a left onto South 212th. The cemetery is on your immediate right hand side before you go over the overpass for Highway 167. If heading south on Highway 167, take the South 212th exit ramp and turn left onto South 212th. Go over the overpass. At the end of the overpass before you reach the light on your left hand side is the cemetery.

The cemetery is located at what use to be the town of O’Brien in earlier days. It was founded in about 1866. Some of the graves have been moved to the Hillcrest Burial Park in Kent, but at this time I do not have a list of those family names. Cemetery Contact: Kent United Methodist Church or South King Genealogical Society

The South King County Genealogical Society did a major clean up project on this cemetery within the last 6-12 months. You can see some of the cemetery stones from the main street now, whereas before you couldn’t. The majority of the blackberry bushes were cut down and removed. There is access to the stones with a couple of exceptions and there does appear to be a walking part of sorts thru the cemetery you can follow as well as a box on the front of the cemetery fence that includes a rough draft map of the cemetery, so that you can follow it as you walk thru the cemetery.

The cemetery is fenced but is kept unlocked. Be careful as you walk thru the cemetery as there is lots of twigs and grass to walk thru (and at least one big gopher).

I have transcribed this cemetery by a walk thru in May 2007.
