|JIM BROWN||RE: William Albert Grown, Sr.|
Thank you so much for the update on William Albert Brown, Sr. We thought he was lost since he was buried in a Potters Field. When he died he was a poor man, which is a shame since he was "well-to-do" in his early to mid years. Having not been to the cemetery, does he have a marker of any kind?
Again thank you so much for the information and the work you do for Find A Grave.
Jim & Cheryl Brown
|Always with Love||RE: Isaac Van Horn|
Hello there. I'm no longer able to check if he is buried there, but I've added a memorial for him and put in a photo request for that cemetery. If he is there, the photographers will find him. Best wishes.
|Don Green||Brownes at Inglewood|
Photographed Edwin & Belle today. Also found a Thomas Browne (1849 - 1942) who I assume is Edwin's father. (Was Thomas listed in the CA Death Records as "Brown" instead of "Browne" by any chance?) I also photographed him & created a memorial (123441854). Hope your interest extends to him.
|Joseph Mann||RE: William Fish|
You're very welcome. I am glad I could have been of help.
|Gunner Bill||RE: Vets at Union Cemetery|
The reason I logged onto the site was so I could make contributions to the Veterans I'm working on in my project. I would like the opportunity to expand my contributions to other Veterans, so thank you for inviting me to assist you.
I have a Veterans meeting on Thursday. If the Service Officer is there, I'll see if he can help engage the Marker issue.
As for touring the cemetery, I would very much like to. I'm between employment opportunities, so I'm fairly available if you'd like to schedule a day/time. AM on Tuesday is a bad time for me, otherwise, let me know.
I can also assist with logging the correct medals on each page. Assuming I can find the records. Of course there are certain assumptions that are safe to make on Service Medals & Badges.
There is also an option to post Official Medals and then a separate post of commemorative medals.
I am also the editor of the American Legion newsletter. We can make announcements and ask for volunteers. Our Post Commander, Richard Smith is very interested in anything to do with Union Cemetery.
Please feel free to use my personal e-mail address at GunnerBill0306@gmail.com.

FYI: Barbara - There are so many that would fit well on a Union Cemetery tour. Here is one that would be good to include due to its content...
|Nathan Haines||Robert Durfee|
I messed up my first message! :-]
I went to the cemetery and found Albert and Electa Durfee's grave in Multnomah Park Cemetery. You requested pics of Robert Durfee's grave and not the two aforementioned Durfee's.
Robert's page on Find A Grave says he was buried in section x grave 25B. There is no such thing in that cemetery. Somebody took to putting section x for a location when it was unclear from cemetery records as to what section the person was put in, ok? So, I went on the assumption that possibly Robert was buried by or with Albert and Electa. I found their graves quite easily but there is no space on either side of their graves for anyone else to possibly be buried there unless Robert got buried in one of their graves and no stone of any kind was ever added to indicate that?? That has happened before on occasion. This cemetery is like a poor man's cemetery and in the past it suffered from very poor record keeping making the people who care for the office now a real hardship trying to get things straightened out as much as possible and at times it has not been possible. There are a multitude of old temporary cement grave markers in this cemetery that have sunken down from years and years of long rainy Oregon winters and have gotten covered over and buried with mud and grass. I have dug up quite a few gravestones there so you can now see them again. Other volunteers have done the same.
I don't know why someone put the location on Robert's page the way they did. This cemetery is now under the care of the City of Portland by a division called Metro Cemetery association. They have an online record data base. I checked it for Robert and I now see in that data base that Robert is listed as unknown section, but in Lot 140, grave #4. That makes a lot more sense since not all, but most of the lots in this cemetery, have 6 graves per Lot. This cemetery is divided into 8 "sections". Six of the eight sections have a Lot 140 in them. I checked, on a hunch, as to where Lot 140 is in Section F, since Albert and Electa Durfee are in Section F, Lot 25. Guess what I found? The way the lots run in that section, section 140 is right next to Lot 25, believe it or not! So, I think I just solved the mystery this morning as to where Robert went. I am guessing he does not have a gravestone or I think I would have seen it when I was right by there looking for Albert and Electa's graves. I will pinpoint that location when I get over there again and see what I find. I will poke around and see if his stone is covered up with dirt if I don't see one. One problem right now is that it is supposed to be bad weather with off and on rain for the next week or so straight now. It would be nice to wait until it is at least partly sunny, IF, that happens anytime soon or before my claim expires that I made for Robert's request. I am excited now to get over there and do some checking. I don't know if I will be able to stand to wait too long? :-] I will let you know what I find.
Also, the pics for Albert and Electa. They are behind a big Cedar tree and are right next to two very large upright gravestones and are in the shade until about 10 AM or so and before the sun comes out from behind the Cedar tree Albert's gravestone dissappears into the shade of one of the upright gravestones. Sigh. I went ahead and took pics of the area in the shade for now. I am going to try checking this gravesite very late in the afternoon sometime to see if Albert's grave comes out from behind the shade of the upright gravestone so I can get a better picture of it. We will see. These two stones are very unphotogenic gravestones due to their coloring and being shaded. I think they would look a whole sight better if they were in the sun.

Thank You for the information and the links. Have you ran across David's Wife? We have a Jan Scofield (1930-1985) Find A Grave #90543348 with identical headstone with same "In Thee Have I put My Faith" saying here in the Marysville Cemetery. I looked them up on familysearch.org and came away with a Jeanette Stuart's marriage in 1959 to David in Nevada. Nothing about a Jan, unless Jan is Nick name for Jeanette.
Blessings and Thank you again.
