The cemetery is located .8 miles west on Pioneer Avenue from Cashmere Middle School in Cashmere, WA. Turn right/south on Wohler for about 100 feet and turn right/west on Hazel Place.  Go up Hazel Place about .1 mile and turn left/south and go up the dirt road to the top of the hill. The cemetery is enclosed in chain link fence with a gate. The # in the cemetery records denotes that records show that they were buried in the cemetery and then moved to the Cashmere Cemetery.  There were 4 graves marked with a red stone - no inscriptions.  There were possibly other unmarked graves. 
 
Briskey/Brisky family history claims this cemetery was the first white cemetery in the upper Wenatchee Valley.  It became known as the Briskey-Treadwell Cemetery because the Briskeys, Treadwells, and several friends and neighbors who died in those rugged, early pioneer days are buried in this cemetery.  The property was eventually dedicated to the city of Cashmere to be used as a cemetery or park.
