Saulsberry Graveyard
Pacific County, Washington

Contributed by T Sheldon, Aug 28, 2000 [tsheldon@tss.net]]. Total records = 8.

Transcribed by T Sheldon this 30th day of May, 2000.

Location: SW 1/4 Sec 14, T15N, R9W. General Smith Creek area.

Upper Smith Creek history shows that George W. Saulsberry purchased the above parcel from A.A. Gust on 27 Dec 1913. It is also stated that this is the parcel of land on which "several children and Mrs. Saulsberry" are buried. No specific location ("under the tree", "by the water", etc.) is given. Alonzo F. Saulsberry bought land in Willapa in Aug of 1882 (lot 2, Sec 27, T14N, R8W), but this land was closer into town and is unlikely to be a sight for any type of burial. According to the history: "The settlement was so far from a doctor that several children died that might have been saved; they are buried somewhere on the overgrown homestead. Frank Saulsberry's mother is buried on what was his place. William Hastings made the coffin and used black cashmere that Mother had for a dress and covered it. We lined it inside with cotton and covered it with white sheeting. Mr. Saulsberry's wife (d/o Capt. Henry Whitcomb, a pioneer) had died a year earlier at her father's home in Willapa."
