LaFollette Cemetery
Almira, Lincoln County, Washington

Contributed by Pat Rice, Mar 14, 2000, last edited Apr 18, 2009 [rcrice@centurytel.net]. Total records = 176.

LaFollette Cemetery is nine miles north of Almira in Lincoln County on the Old Coulee Road, then one mile east on LaFollette Road. The cemetery sits high on a hill surrounded by wheat fields and in the spring has a magnificent display of wildflowers.

The LaFollette Cemetery Association was formed in 1906 by a group of families living in that area and is still under local management. The cemetery served the north Almira area, including the area of Tipso.

The first burial appears to be Jane Hughes in 1885, the last, Agnes Jackson in May 1999. Additional information on many of these families may be found in The History of Almira, edited by Pat Rice, published in 1989.

Data is taken from tombstones, the cemetery records and burial book held currently by Dick Douglas of Almira. There are 15 known, but unidentified graves in this cemetery.
