Sepulchrum: Graves, tombs, sepulchers.

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.

Multnomah Cem - Oscar A. Hummel
Sent you an email and it bounced back. I'm a family history researcher working on my lines and Oscar A. Hummel is a distant relative. In the bio of him, his wife's name was listed as "Bastick" and I believe it to be Bostick. And it also lists three children - two of them born before his only marriage: "Children: Lulu Constance b. 1892 WI d. Portland, Multnomah, OR; Rudolph b. 1895 Wisc." I believe that both of these children were actually children of his older brother, who died in 1898, not Oscar. I would be happy to provide any information. Thanks.

Thank you so much for taking the photo of Herbert Tyler's headstone! I live in Hawaii so I'm especially dependent on mainland volunteer photographers like you to help me. Thank you again and aloha!

RE: Fred Martinez
Interesting...I will now keep my eyes open. I'm usually out there with a broom and camera. I talked to Gary during the Memorial Day weekend and told him I was with Find A Grave. He had a more detailed map on the table, which I photographed. We talked about the history of the cemetery. It's not a private cemetery, so I wonder what is up with that? They do not seem to be friendly about giving out locations, but if you have an idea what the section is, I will go look. Well, you are doing a great service, keep it up! Happy day, Jhere

RE: Andrew Opson (Oregon)
I just wondered if that same Andrew Opson was in Minnesota where he was married/divorced and had a daughter that he left behind. Btw A Kritzer doesn't sound finnish and Andrew is english for Antti. Opson doesn't really sound finnish either. Just wondered if you had more information. Sadly can't obtain the dc since don't live in US.

Hello, Hello, I give you accolades in what you do when it comes to finding locations of graves. Greenwood Hills Cemetery is extremely difficult to find a gravestone without any type of location. Just so you know, I am one of those people who carry a broom and hunt for gravestones, with my camera of course. This last weekend, I found my first!!!!!
Do you have any idea what section Fred may be located in? I will do whatever I can to find his grave, but I need a starting point.
Unfornately, there is a charge and it may be only for family members. I was lucky to find a more detailed mapped that was displayed on a table during the Memorial Day event.
Thank you so much,
Jhere McKenzie

Brainard Cemetery and Frances W. Brown
Thanks for the age of Frances W. Brown! I added the info, and ran the tombstone calculator to derive a birth date (

Their suggestion:
She was apparently 81 years, 3 months and 28 days old at time of death.
