Located about 9 miles south of Brewster in Section 15, Township 29, Range 24.  At the south end of the Brewster Bridge (that crosses the Columbia River) turn right (West) on the paved county road about 2.5 miles to a T in the road - go straight ahead on the Central Ferry Road (Also a big red arrow pointing to the Offices of Crane and Crane Orchards).  Go about .3 miles to Central Ferry Canyon Road and turn to the left (South).  To the right is the Crane and Crane Warehouse and Office.  After about 1.1 miles you enter the Wells Wildlife Area, a project of Douglas County PUD.  You come to a cattle guard and continue straight ahead (South) across the guard and go another .8 miles on a steep climb.  The Packwood Cemetery road is to the left (East) and you go about .2 miles to the fenced cemetery.  Guessing the cemetery is about 7 acres in size - most of the graves are near the gate.  The cemetery can be reached coming from the south (Mansfield) but the road is not as good.

Most of the above have obits on file at the WAGS library in Wenatchee. 
 
Fred Pflugrath finished walking the cemetery on 22 August 1999.  There are at least 20 unmarked graves.  There is some care to the cemetery in that there is a flag pole and a large apple bin used for garbage.  Any misspelling and wrong dates, please let Fred Pflugrath know.  Thanks.  fpflug@nwi.net
