We started out just two guys who have an interest in genealogy and old things.
One of us (Eric) has relatives at Multnomah Park, the other (David) is repaying a debt to genealogists who supplied him with a huge amount of information from Sweden.
We have listed most of the graves in this large public cemetery, which contains over 12,000 residents. We have not, and probably will not, list the most recent burials in the cemetery because of privacy concerns. The 'death' dates for people may be their burial dates. We are working off Metro's data base which gives the burial date of the deceased up until the 1970's.

The data base supplied to us by Metro, the current managing agency for Multnomah Park, has a lot amount of unknowns, and that's where the X's come in. IF you see an "X" in the plot information it means it is unknown in the data base that we have nearly finished transcribing and entering for all people to see and use. Note that Metro inherited the records from another agency who inherited them from a previous owner, who in turn inherited them from previous owners.

Check out Metro's webpage for Multnomah Park Cemetery:

If you have any information on any of the residents of Multnomah Park, please use the new correction on FindAGrave to let us know. It is much quicker and easier for us - and will get done sooner than the 'old' way.

Please make sure you have the right person, not just a person with the same name.

We have added some people to the Multnomah Park Cemetery online FAG database even though they do not appear in the online Metro Pioneer cemeteries database. We have done so because their death certificate and/or Oregonian funeral notice indicates they were buried there. The burial location will be noted as: "unknown - does not appear in cemetery records." These people may be buried elsewhere. We don't know, and the death certificate information is not always reliable.

We are making periodic trips to the state archives in Salem to make copies of Death Certificates. We do update information with data from the various death certificates - when we have the time. We have, but generally do not post the certificates on FAG. If you would like one please inquire. Driving an hour to Salem to copy documents in the state archives is beyond what is a normal volunteer activity - especially with the price of gas.

Thank you, David and Eric.

Emma Cauldwell/Emma Westfall
I suspect that Emma was buried in that cemetery as Emma Westfall and that "Cauldwell" was her surname after her husband Thomas Westfall passed away and she remarried. You also have a memorial posted for Emma Westfall in that cemetery. I'm wondering if Thomas Westfall was buried there with Emma. He was first married to Emily Murphy, a sister of one of my GG grandmothers. Emily passed away and was buried in NY. There were children from both marriages. Sharon

Thank you for letting me know that this child has no headstone. Such a shame, but the baby's soul is not there. I will go ahead and leave another "flower" for her.
Thank you so very much for everything you've done and all that you do for Find A Grave. You've made this site the success that it is in Oregon and helped me more than I can ever repay you, so I've been "paying it forward" as it were. Take care. I can hardly wait for Super Bowl!
With All Sincerity,

I really appreciate the photo of my GrGrGrandfather's headstone. Would it be okay if I used it in my family tree?
Again thanks you so much for your time.
