Almira, Lincoln County, Washington 99103
Almira Cemetery came into being following the death of the founder's first child in 1886. When the founder himself, Charles Davis, died in 1899, his widow sold the two acres to the town (held by the school district until the town was incorporated) for one dollar. Another two-plus acres were added in 1929, bringing the area to just over 4 acres.
The Town of Almira is responsible for it's care. The Almira Endowment Association was formed to aid with the interest from Endowment investments. Records for the cemetery are maintained by the City of Almira. Those records were computerized and the updated completed in 2003.
Almira was one of the primary cemeteries during the construction of Coulee Dam, accounting for many of the unknowns that we have. There are 70 in unknown locations, with documentation of some sort, including burial permits and death certificates.
