Curby Cemetery is one of the unused cemeteries in Spokane County.
It is located on the south bank of the Spokane River in Northwest
Spokane County. There are six known graves and many unknown.
From the book by Ann Roberts, printed in 1989, I found the following,
taken from oral history of Alice Blair Newell. Alice grew up close
to the cemetery where her grandparents are buried, as well as an
aunt and uncle.
Below are listed a few of the many who were buried here. The wooden
markers that depicted the gravesites no longer exist, only flower
plants growing over the graves or mounds of dirt, distinguish where
the different graves are. There is no access to this cemetery.
I have transcribed from Spokane County Cemetery Directory at
the Spokane Public Library, compiled by John W. Witte, July
