  Mountain View Cemetery is located west of Davenport in Sec 20 Twp 25 R 37, just east of Davenport Catholic Cemetery. Some of the Davenport Cemetery Deeds are found under the seller (grantor) of Calvin L Simmons at the Lincoln Co Auditor office.  Dec 3, 1900, Calvin L Simmons, grantor, sold to O W Stone, grantee, (also local undertaker) by Quit Claim Deed, Vol.  8 p. 538, part of SE ¼ SE ¼ SW ¼ of Sec20-25-37. The first Davenport Cemetery was posited on the East end of the present location of the town of Davenport. Various reports surface of tombstone fragments being turned to the ground level as the fields have been worked over the decades. The current Davenport Mountain View Cemetery was originally the Davenport Lutheran Cemetery, located at the western edge of the current cemetery. No details have been found regarding the moving of the original Davenport Cemetery to the present site of Mt View Cemetery. Few records have been found of the re-interment of any of the Lincoln County Poor Farm burials to the Davenport Mt View Cemetery. Some of the mortuary records for 1936-1953 of the Bumgarner Funeral Home are preserved with MAC in Spokane, WA.  Some tombstone data was gleaned from the records of Wes and Carrie Lartigue which they recorded in 1973 and 1974 as death records were sought. Some city records were photocopied, however, an exhaustive search was not done. Some city records are vague, entries denoting either the purchaser of the plot or the tenant of same. Many death records herein were not confirmed by either the city or by tombstone listings. No attempt was made herein to document all tombstone data, except in rare cases where requests led me to find specific stones. File prepared by Marge Womach.

MacMaster, Francis D L:  (1882-1957); (Edit: Frank Duncan MacMaster was born at Jackson, Michigan on Aug 9, 1882 and came west in 1889. In 1907 he married Miss Emma Hoffman. She died Feb 4, 1915 and nine years later he married again, Sallie Kelly. Preceding taken from the Zion German Methodist Cemetery file regarding the life and burial of his first wife, where also occurred the burial of two of their children, Irvin and Margaret.);  “He was born at Jackson, Michigan, August 9, 1882, is the only son and had one sister. His father was Scotch and his mother was Scotch, English and Holland Dutch, both being born in Canada. His father was employed in the railroad shops when they lived in Michigan.   The family moved from Michigan back to Ontario, Canada, near Toronto and the father worked in a glove factory, although a carpenter by trade.  The family came west in 1889 and stopped at Seattle where the elder MacMaster worked at his trade after the big Seattle fire.  From Seattle the family moved to a homestead, a salt water marsh, in Island County, Washington. Mr MacMaster was the sixth man to attempt to “stick it out” on this salt-water-marsh homestead—and he stuck. The land was very rich, but had to be reclaimed by dyking. He reclaimed a portion of it, but caution had to be exercised that no fire got started in this soil as it would burn, peat being a large percentage of its composition. Frank D left the farm when 19 years old, coming to Sprague, Lincoln County where he worked for his brother-in-law, W F Smith, who was engaged in horse raising near Lake Colville. When 25 years old he married Miss Emma Hoffman . She died and nine years later he married again, this time, Sally Kelly. In the two families there were a total of 11 children, but only nine are now surviving.  He lost his home place in the Rocklyn neighborhood three or four years ago and now leases the William Ragan place. “Mac” thinks he has killed 35 or 40 rattlesnakes every year since he has been in Lincoln County, and that’s 30 years. Figure it out for yourself—we think he’s the champion. He just recently killed a big rattler that had lost all of his rattles, making it more dangerous for his snakeship to be at large, as it could give no warning when approached.”  (Harrington History: Thumbnail Biographies);
