Washoe Cemetery

Payette, Payette Co., Idaho

Washoe cemetery is located 1.7 miles S. W. of Payette, on Washoe road. After considerable research, there appears to be very little information on this cemetery. I have compiled this list from a listed that was put together in February of 1943 by Dora McKinney. This list was in the possession of the Payette County Historical Society. This list does not completely match the one provided by the Idaho State Historical Society. It is believed that there are between 25-30 people buried there, but due to extensive vandalism, only 6 stones remain that are readable. The stones of the Tharp children have been broken off and only the bases remain, but they are located on each side of their mother Fannie Tharp, whose stone still remains and is in relatively good shape. The stone of Daniel Kinsey has had an attempted repair made on it after it was shattered into several pieces.

The origins of the cemetery are still unknown, although at one time, the cemetery, and the property surrounding it, was owned by William H. Upchurch and his wife Adelia. I have found information stating that they deeded the cemetery to the public after their daughter died and was buried there. However, I have never found her name listed on any listing for this particular cemetery.

I am continuing a diligent search until I find out all possible information on this cemetery. I also have photos of the cemetery and the remaining headstones. It is my understanding that there is a local committee that is planning some way of repairing the cemetery. I have no current information on that.
