About the cemetery

Star 23 Rebekah Lodge Cemetery

Wasco County
Established 1895
ca. 915 burials

 

Many markers in this cemetery predate its establishment because of numerous reburials from other locations. Several members of the Vanderpool family are buried here, including Dr. Larkin Vanderpool (1831-1894). Despite being a self-taught doctor, the community still held his medical abilities in high regard. It is said that his funeral procession was over a mile long.
