The Colby Cemetery was last transcribed by the Puget Sound Genealogical Society Cemetery Project on August 2, 2007. Colby (South Colby) Cemetery is located at the crossroad of SE Mile Hill Drive and Alaska Street SE in Colby (outskirts of Port Orchard), Kitsap Co., Wash.
This small cemetery is in a wooded area and is on a slight incline, with a narrow dirt road leading up to it. The cemetery appears to be cared for periodically through the spring and summer months. It is divided into two tiers, East and West with a central road running from north to south which is now overgrown. The ground slopes down to the south side into overgrown woods and a pond. Remnants of an old wire and post fence can be found on the east and west sides.
At the bottom of the Plat Map dated the 8th day of August 1917 is the legal description of the property and a Dedication signed by J.T. McPherson, T.A. Grant, and Mrs. Jennie Smith. There is a Plot Map dated 1917.
The cemetery speaks of the diphtheria epidemic of 1904, according to the Kitsap County History Book, when one-third of all those under 20 died. There are tombstones that date back as far as 1887 in this old cemetery and there are some that will never be found.
