The site of this abandoned cemetery was about ½ mile east
and one mile south of the Village of Deep Creek WA.
Deep Creek Cemetery is abandoned and by 1930 most of the graves
had been moved to the Medical Lake cemetery, one mile south of
this location. In the move one monument was left for some reason.
It might have been overlooked, no one is sure because no records
have been found. This monument stayed in place along McFarlane
Rd until about 1964 when the road was widened. The monument was
removed. The land where the cemetery was is under cultivation.
It was reported in March of 1960 by John N. Johnson, who resided
about one mile south of the village of Deep Creek, that his father,
Lars Peter Johnson (1859-1934) helped to remove the remains and
monuments of those buried in Deep Creek Cemetery to Medical Lake
Cemetery. He further stated that probably some of the graves in
Deep Creek Cemetery were not found, and not removed.
In 1964 McFarlane road was widened and the monument disappeared.
The land is now under cultivation. No records have ever been found
for the cemetery to date, however I have found names listed in
the state archives death records and other sources, where they
state, buried in Deep Creek.
