Almond Cemeteries

Gary Foster Farm

From John Reynolds’ pamphlet, Forgotten Cemeteries of Almond:

Another small family cemetery lies at some distance from the Karr Valley highway to the south and across the creek from the residence of Gary Foster on lands originally owned by the Rathbun family. This cemetery is now in a very wooded area and contains perhaps as many as twenty graves, only two of which are marked by other than field stones. One of these is badly weathered and is unreadable. The other was so badly flaked off that fragments bearing the inscription were recovered from around the base of the stone and pieced together like a jigsaw puzzle. When completed sufficiently it read: “Lynda, wife of L. S. Rathbun, Died May 12, 1877, aged 31 years.”
