Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Oysterville) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Oysterville. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from OystervilleOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Oysterville. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 46.5477, Longitude: -124.0287    
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
