The Odd Fellows cemetery is also known as the Cedar Hills Cemetery. There are quite a few recent burials here that don't appear to be affiliated with the Odd Fellows. There are several hundred burials in here, so had I had to be selective on which gravestones I added. I used older gravestones, with the exception of my dad's friend Frank Solaegui. Frank was born in Fallon in 1921. His wife Thelma was born in Jiggs in 1927.

Eureka Odd Fellows Lodge #22 was instituted on March 14, 1872. A second IOOF Lodge called Mountain Odd Fellows Lodge #27 was instituted on May 11, 1875. These lodges are now extinct. I'm not sure of the dates that they stopped meeting. There are also some members of the Knights of Pythias and Ancient Order of United Workmen buried in this cemetery. Beatific Knights of Pythias Lodge #7 was instituted on September 22, 1874. Alpha Lodge #1 of the Ancient Order of United Workmen was organized on March 11, 1870. Both of those lodges are now extinct. I'm not sure of the dates that they stopped meeting.

I have included a 1901 dues receipt for a member of the Eureka Odd Fellows Lodge #22.
