In Reply to: FRANK ABEL CEMETARY / Cowlitz Co. by Cyndee Miles Pearson of 276

The caretaker (sexton) of Cowlitz County Cemetery District #2 is at the cemetery part time for maintenance, burials, etc. The office at Frank Abel (correct spelling) has a listing of burials, mostly after the 1940s for specific plots. (Records were kept at someone's home and were lost in a house fire in the 1940s and all files were lost - the ledger books, files, the whole thing. They have reconstructed as much as possible, but actual burial plots may not be cited prior to the fire.)

I live in Longview and can get further info if you desire.
