The site of this abandoned cemetery was about ½ mile east and one mile south of the Village of Deep Creek WA.

Deep Creek Cemetery is abandoned and by 1930 most of the graves had been moved to the Medical Lake cemetery, one mile south of this location. In the move one monument was left for some reason. It might have been overlooked, no one is sure because no records have been found. This monument stayed in place along McFarlane Rd until about 1964 when the road was widened. The monument was removed. The land where the cemetery was is under cultivation.

It was reported in March of 1960 by John N. Johnson, who resided about one mile south of the village of Deep Creek, that his father, Lars Peter Johnson (1859-1934) helped to remove the remains and monuments of those buried in Deep Creek Cemetery to Medical Lake Cemetery. He further stated that probably some of the graves in Deep Creek Cemetery were not found, and not removed.

In 1964 McFarlane road was widened and the monument disappeared. The land is now under cultivation. No records have ever been found for the cemetery to date, however I have found names listed in the state archives death records and other sources, where they state, buried in Deep Creek.
