|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Land on Pendleton's north hill was donated in the 1870's by Moses and Aura Goodwin for a small cemetery. When Olney cemetery opened on the south side of town in 1891, most of the graves were relocated there and the land turned into a park. Since permission of family members were needed in order to move the graves, several graves could not be moved and still remain within the park. At least three of these graves, only the 'base' of the headstones remain, with nothing left to identify the graves. The photo shows a "Fort playground" built on adjoining land from donations from several businesses, organizations, and private parties/individuals in Pendleton. Across the foot path is the headstone of Mary Ann Gray who was born in 1802 and died in 1879, A short distance from her and along the same foot path can be seen 3 flat white graves belonging to 3 children of Mr. and Mrs. L.L. Lewis. All three children died in the summer of 1878.
