Wilbur Cemetery Obituaries A through G

OBITUARIES of PIONEER FAMILIES BURIED AT WILBUR CEMETERY,
   LINCOLN COUNTY, WILBUR WASHINGTON

This is a compilation of obituaries of Pioneers and others who lived and died in Lincoln
County.  The spouse has been included where possible, as have a few of their infant children.
FOR FURTHER FAMILY MEMBERS ALSO BURIED HERE IN THE WILBUR CEMETERY, NOTE THE BLOCK/LOT NUMBERS AND CHECK  THE WILBUR CEMETERY LISTING.
The spellings on the headstones is sometimes different than the one in the newspaper obituary, needless to say I don't know which is correct, so I left them as is.  The Obituaries were typed in by Daryll Bahr and only slightly edited by me.
Daryll provided much of this information because of the many headstones of these pioneers that recorded "no information" on them and had no dates. Information in parenthesis was provided.   These obituaries were taken from the Wilbur Register, Wilbur, Washington

Submitted by Daryll Bahr and  transcribed by Rella Gleaton
