History -- Lyle Cemetery, Klickitat County, Lyle, and Washington, as written by J.E. Smith, Chairman Board of Trustees. Sept.29, 1917.
"The trustees do not consider Hood's claim to the lands now occupied and used for cemetery purposes valid, and the association's title to the land is good and sufficient in law and equity. There are several decisions by the Supreme Court of the state similar to this case, when lands had been used for a cemetery they were consecrated for all time for that purpose."
