Terrace was once a quite large town, starting in 1869, and running until the railroad bed was changed to cross the lake, which was in the early 1900's. Terrace was a large maintenance and repair shop facility, and so many people were employed there to repair engines. The Bureau of land management now has oversight of the old town location, and it's possible they may have some better cemetery records.
According to a book on ghost towns, lost gold and such legends, there is a cemetery with 60 graves at Terrace on the hill above town.
Terrace is no longer a town. It was located along the Central Pacific Rail Road line. The site of former Terrace is near Highway 30, between Park Valley and Grouse Creek Junction (in the area where Highway 30 bends from going south to going west).
To get to Highway 30, take I-15 north. Near Tremonton, take I-84 west (going to Idaho). At the Snowville 2nd exit, take Highway 30 going west.
