Establishment & Prominent Graves
The Redmond Pioneer Cemetery was established in 1886 and maintains over 1,300 burial sites. The land for the cemetery was thought to be donated by the Tosh and Perrigo families but after more research it was learned that neither Tosh nor Perrigo owned the land. John Perry homesteaded the land in 1885 and was likely the donor of the land.
The cemetery contains the remains of many of the people associated with the founding and development of Redmond including:
- Key figures such as the Sikes and Adair families
- Families of logging pioneers, including the Breckbery, Elduen, Olson, and Isackson families
- Farming pioneers, including the Hutcheson, Tosh, Perry, Perrigo, Weise families
- Community leaders such as Mayor William
Ethnic & National Origins
