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.

Howard and Myrtle McElroy
Hello Dave or Eric;
There is a memorial for Myrtle McElroy at Mutlnomah Park but she is actually buried at Lone Fir? Went over to MP to see if there was some indication that she was with her husband, Howard and it turns out that Howard's marker is gone. Someone dug it up but it looks like it was just left lying on the ground? Too bad. I would suggest that Myrtle's memorial be removed. Thanks for your time. Dave

Thank you so much for the photos of Milton and John Dewitt Donley's headstones and linking them to their parents. I really appreciate the effort you obviously put out in digging them completely out of the grass and dirt and washing them off. I do the same thing.

Thank you

James & Sarah Campbell
Hi there -

I don't believe I ever thanked you for photographing the graves of James and Sarah Campbell in Multnomah Park Cemetery. It was very kind and greatly appreciated.

Kindest Regards,

David J. McRae

Multnomah Park burials

Do you know of any other resource for Multnomah Park burial locations other than their online finder tool through Metro? I've come across 2 or 3 that have DC's saying they were interred at Multnomah, but are not on their website.
