Currently I am working in the Mt. View Cemetery (Oregon City) in the County Park #1 section (paupers). It has been neglected for many many years. I have unearthed and photographed some 62 headstones and marked their rows. These folks deserve to have their graves maintained as much as anyone else in the cemetery.
I am a 6 generation Oregonian and have been doing my family genealogy since the early 70's. Back then it took months to find out one fact, today with the computer that information can be found in the blink of an eye.
Only now it seems more confusing the first thing I learned back then was to document all my information and make sure the facts were correct. Now a day's people just put anything on the internet only guessing or by family stories, making things more confusing. I am now trying to set apart family fact from fiction to keep the information correct for future generations to come.
I love doing genealogy it's a real life story..like a good book you can't put down the only thing is I will probably never know the ending or the beginning.
My memorials are family and a work in progress, adding to each one as I find family material and photos. I have traveled to Washington, California, Ohio and Pennsylvania doing my family research in cemeteries and historical societies. If you are family I would love to hear from you.
There is nothing worse than someone stealing someone's work, not giving credit to the original poster then pretending it is their work. Please don't be one of those people, and please don't use my photos or documents without asking first.
I do photo requests and take photos while I am in the cemetery. I like to take more than one photo of the headstone, to give you the feeling of being there and seeing the surrounding area. If you would like me to remove any of my photos just ask.

Penny, thanks so much for taking the pictures of Elmer, Jessie and Doris' headstones for me. I appreciate that very much!
|Samantha||FORT BIDWELL CEMETERY|
I'm not positive which sight I was on at the time. I spent a couple of hours online that day reading about Ft. Bidwell. I think it might have been a photo of a list of interred that I saw. When you were out there did you see any displays with information about the place under glass?
If you think this list of names is incorrect I will be happy to delete them. I didn't drive out there and look. I was just looking at what was available online and I wanted to make sure these folks weren't left out.
What do you think? You are my eyes out there so it's you're call.
Thank you for your help, Samantha :)

Hi Penny, I have tried to locate a map also but have not found one. I don't live near there, and have only been to the cemetery a couple of times while on vacation in CA. We found the cemetery and took some photos while there. My husband and I have had to walk the cemetery when I was searching for graves to take photos for, Find a Grave. Most of the ones, I could not find. The cemetery is in really, really nice shape very clean and kept up but there is no grave locator, map or a kiosk of any kind to help with the grave locations. There are no business, only a post office and some residence, farms, and a reservation there but no one is ever visible to talk with to ask where the cemetery records would be located. You might check to see what county this cemetery is located in, and check with them. I may be going back to that area later this month and I see where there are several more photo request for this cemetery and I will try to locate them. If you would like me to try to locate your relatives, let me know and I will try to find them. Hope this helps, Pam

Yes, they were married in 1877. Thank you so much for your interest and help! His family were among the early settlers and pioneers in Oregon. I am surprised there was no stone. The last name is spelled a multitude of ways. Either is acceptable.

Your efforts to find the stone for Andrew J. are deeply appreciated. His burial card states there was a stone. Obviously his, like so many others, has evaporated or been buried with time. Thank you for photographing the plot. It is truly appreciated.
