Located a few miles southwest of Grangeville on the Old Girton Farm

It is now in the Crimson Ridge Subdivision and thanks to the homeowners, the cemetery is mowed and still watched over.

Girton Cemetery is located in an enclosed area on private land southwest of Grangeville. The homestead land was in T30N R2E, parts of Sec 25 & 26. It had been neglected for years but in the 1980's was renovated with a newspaper article about the event which I haven't been able to come up with yet.

GIRTON Lena (Helena)) 5 May 1849 13 Aug 1901 Obit says - Mrs. T.W. Girton died at her home "near this city" August 13, 1901, of cancer, "aged 52 years, 3 months, and 8 days". Born in Lee county, Iowa, May 5, 1849, moved to Benton county, Oregon, with parents in 1853, married on October 12, 1872, to T.W. Girton, and at once moved to Camas Prairie.

"Funeral took place yesterday at the residence and the remains were followed to their resting place on the old homestead." This agrees with the grandson's memory.
