**Russell Creek Cemetery new information


Stones Found. 

 Four grave marker headstones probably from the old cemetery on Russell Creek were found in the old cemetery at Fort Walla Walla Park early this week by the Fort Park caretaker.  Names and other data on the stone are: John Salling, April 17,1874; Mary J. McGuire, June 30, 1825-November 7, 1893; James R. Giles, May 7, 1878, age 4 years, son of J. M. and S. M. Giles and Ulysses Leroy, son of R. P. and E. A. Steen, died March 28, 1869, age 5 years.  Sam Maxson, city park and recreation director, remembers having seen some of the names in the old Russell Creek cemetery.  "The stones have been stored at Fort Park and will be turned over to anyone with family connections: says Maxson.  "I have  no knowledge of how the stones came to Fort Park, other than indications point to pranksters." (WWUB Wed., Nov 27  1968, If interested in this information you may call Herb Clark, Walla Walla, 1968.)
