Also called "The Lincoln Cemetery". Peach Cemetery was said to be formerly in Sec.22-23 Twp 27N Range 35 EWM and was located on page 157 of the 19ll Atlas. It was moved to make room for the back- water of Grand Coulee Dam which is now Lake Roosevelt although at present we can find no records of who actually was moved from the "Old Peach" to the present one
The present day Peach is in S20 T27N R35E about 1/4 mile South of the defunct Lincoln Mill at Lincoln, it is about an acre in size and fenced. Two previous rosters were made in 1968 and 1974 and some headstones were read then that are no longer there. The notes in parenthesis are mine. The earliest headstone is 1892 and the last is 1953. There are a number of unknown and unmarked graves.
The names listed with an asterisk (*) were graves moved from the W.L.Brannon Cemetery, now under water, and put in the M.Brannon Lot. Brannon information from the Spokane Library Records, NW Room. The Hill, Uribe and other families were buried here orignally, the earliest being 1903. I have verified this by a living relative, now 90 years old, who attended the burials. The Grand Coulee Dam project began in the 1930s.
This pioneer cemetery has been "adopted" by a group of local residents who have installed a new flagpole, mow the weeds and clean the cemetery annually. Walked and read by Rella & Jim Gleaton on May 18, 1999. Submitted by Rella Gleaton on Apr 17, 2001.
