The Columbian Cemetery
1151 N. Columbia Blvd.
Portland Oregon.
is thought to have about 5000 graves,
around 80% are now listed.

The Columbian Cemetery depends on,
Volunteers for all maintenance.
Organized events are a few times a year.

The Cemetery is in desperate need,
If you are able to get there removing sod,
From even one gravestone helps.

Question...
Edgar King is my grandfather's grandfather.

I am taking an interest in the family geneology and my grandpa asked me to look into his relatives. He gave me the names of Edgar and Nettie, his grandparents, to look for.

I sent him the listing you posted for Edgar and Nettie's grave, with the photo of the stone. It is missing the last 2 digits of the year of his death for some reason. We were wondering how one might go about getting that information added to the stone, it should have been 1963. Any idea?

Thanks.

Benjamin Moxley Descendant
Hello Martha,
My great-great grandfather is Benjamin Moxley b.1855, d.1942. His 1st wife's name was Minnie b.1858, d.1916.

His daughter's name has been left out of lineage, maybe because she died so young not quite 20. Her name was Maud Marian Moxley married to Carlos John Anderson. They had 2 kids: Alva Porter Anderson b.6/1895, d.1/1927; Minnie b.2/1897 d.about 2005 or so.

Alva had 2 kids: Carlos Wilson b.6/1918, d.9/2009; Mignon Louise b. 11/1920, d.11/1974.

Are you a caretaker of the cemetery or an descendant of Benjamin & Minnie Moxley? Thank you.
