"In 1894 the Higgins family lost a second child and the people realized the need for a public burial ground. The present site was selected and Mr. and Mrs. Higgins made a grant of one acre of land. The deed was witnessed by the late AI Freehafer. Mr. Higgins was an educated man, a beautiful penman and was assessor for Washington and Adams couhties which were then one and the same. The nearest doctor was at Weiser which meant one and a half days ride both ways, so Mrs. Higgins was called on often to give help in time of sickness."
