Lakeview Cemetery
Sprague, Lincoln County, Washington

Lat: 47° 18' 20"N, Lon: 117° 59' 43"W

Contributed by Maggie Rail, Jul 2000, last edited Jan 06, 2011 [mrail@asisna.com]. Total records = 150.

Located 0.5 mi north of Sprague, Lincoln Co. WA. Exit 245 off Interstate 90 to SR 23. Go north and then west 1.2 mi on Macabee Road. This road leads to Maccabee Cemetery (road and cemetery spelling are different) which is a perpetual care cemetery. Lakeview is directly south and adjacent to Maccabee Cemetery.

Lakeview is not maintained for many years. Because of this Ronald Miller was trying to clean the cemetery out and restore it as best he could at the time of his death. Several fragments of unidentified wood and stone grave markers were found. Sexton records do not exist.

This cemetery was established by a Mr Jones in 1880 at the same time the Maccabee Cemetery was, on 10 acres of land purchased from Harry Jensen. I am not sure how long it was maintained well. The last several years it has sat abandoned, overgrown by brush. Occasionally some ambitious people will try to clean it out, at least around the most obvious headstones. When I read it I was sore for days from something that was brushing off on my clothes from the thick brush and weeds. It is very sad to see the neglect.

More detailed and updated information for each name shown can be accessed at: Sprague City Library, City Hall, Sprague WA Spokane Public Main Library, Genealogy Vertical File, Spokane WA Information listed there include copies of any available census listings, funeral home records, complete gravestone inscriptions, photographs of gravestones, family group records, birth-marriage-death records, newspaper obituaries & articles, Wa State Death Index, etc. Microfilm of Sprague WA newspapers from 1881 located at the Kennedy Library, Eastern WA University, Cheney WA

Part of this was transcribed by Ronald A. Miller, Aug 03, 1999. Ron passed away on Aug 24, 1999, before he could give it to me. I was to meet him in the cemetery on Sep 05, 1999 and he would demonstrate to me how he repaired and reset a stone, and then present me with the file. His son found it completed in Ron's computer, and made it available to me. As I come upon obits or other information I will add to this work and label appropriately.

I visited and read this cemetery on Sep 04, 2006 and have a photo of all existing and legible stones and markers at that time. There are most likely many unmarked graves in this cemetery. If anyone knows of one, I would be happy to add it.
