Bio and Links
Bio Photo My McEwan grandparents divorced when my Mother was 2 in the 1920s. She never knew her father, even though there were only two McEwans in the telephone book. My own father made connections with him and we met. He died shortly after that. I was so curious about him, as he was an unknown and I started rooting around the library in college. Never did find any particular reason for the divorce, but it certainly gave me the "itch" to learn more and do research.

I am glad to make changes, corrections and transfers. Please follow the guidelines of Findagrave and use the edit tab at the memorial.

Happy Hunting!

I'll delete mine. Do you want to copy the info first?

Thanks so much for all the NTC photos! Always grateful to find them and you do such a nice job. When I would go, I would often take a broom. Getting too old to walk among the stones, now. Ground is too uneven. Sure appreciate all that you do!

RE: Thank you
Hi Patty,

That would be great! Peter and Martha Whitney are my great-grandparents, and John Whitney and Anna Catherine Platz are his parents and my GG-grandparents (she remarried after his early death).

By the way, where were you able to find those obituaries from the Woodburn Independent Newspaper?

Lakeview Rolette County
In Rolette county there are two Lakeview cemeteries.
The north one is abandoned and in poor shape. the one on the county line for Pierce and Rolette is the one with a photo of the gate. When I went there I see someone thinks they are the same. One burial was #123129957 Amos Graber which is a Duplicate of
19832630 in the proper cemetery. How did the TWO Lakeviews get so messed up?? There are several other ones also.

Burger's- PS
I forgot to mention something. I know nothing about these Burgers. I have a few names of the graves all around them. None of them are probably related in any way but thought I would run them by you just in case you might know since family relations often times get buried near each other, and if they don't have the name of Burger I would have no idea if they were or not.

Wesley Franklin Burger
I finally got pics for the Burger grave site. I put captions on the area shots as usual.
Wesley's stone is sunken into the ground pretty bad. The whole bottom of the stone including part of the numbers and from there down were all covered over with wet dirt. I got the dirt all dug out and cleaned up. Later on, this summer, the sun will be up high enough that I think his stone would get full sun and make the picture look better that way.
You can see downtown Portland from his grave.

RE: Infant Son Hurst

Thank you. Most often with old monuments your dealing with marble and it develops bacterial stains and so turns the surface black. water and a stiff rag cleans it off.

Also, plant growth like material turns it black. Granite holds up much, much better.

I have cleaned many a marker. Many are beautiful underneath.
