RE: Clackamas Pioneer Cemetery
Thanks so much. William A Morand was the postmaster in Boring. The original building he built and owned in 1913 still stands today. Today it's called the Not So Boring Bar And Grill. In the original building he had the post office and a drug store.

Here are a couple links about his postoffice work.

I have been posting this stuff and more on the town of Boring on my Facebook page Boring Oregon History

I have more on Morand that I haven't put online yet, mostly more post office stuff. I'll work on uploading it in the next few days. Sadly I have yet to find A picture of the man.

I seen your picture of William A Morand. I have been doing a lot of research on the town of Boring where he was quite prominent and I wanted to visit his grave, but I see in all the pics of the cemetery that it is fenced and locked, do you know who i would talk to about getting access to this cemetery?

Thanks so much for taking a photo of Danny's gravestone. He and I grew up together in Hagerstown, MD and were great friends. It means a lot to be able to see his grave. Thanks! James
