Location: Sec 16/17, T14N, R8W.This cemetery was put to use when a mother missed her daughter. Jessie Barber had relocated to Elk Creek from Oregon, and felt bad about leaving the remains of her daughter in OR, so her husband went south to retrieve the "casket" and brought their daughter to their new home. The aunt was heard to have stated that the girl was buried in her own trunk, rather than a casket. The family buried her atop the ridge on their property. BARBER, Jessie, no dates, b. 27 Jul 1890, Whitcomb's Landing WA, d. in southern OR
