There are no known existing records for Pioneer Cemetery prior to 1935, when disaster struck the church and all records were lost.

However, Pioneer Cemetery was recorded in 1905 and the record was published in the Northwest Genealogical Quarterly in 1907 with inserted genealogy information.  Extracting out what does not appear to be actual burial data, the remaining burials were compared to a second recording done in the 1980s.  The result of the comparison was then examined against known existing burials.

The information provided has been verified through public records whenever possible but in many cases, due to the early time period, records do not exist.  For those instances, the 1905 reading is the sole source of verification, therefore the information presented below should be viewed only as a reference guide.
