|Bio and Links|
I am a fifth generation Oregonian but currently live in Winchester, Virginia. I am active in the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War and work to repair, replace, or mark the graves of Civil War veterans buried in Oregon. In 2009 we completed renovation of the Grand Army of the Republic Cemetery in Portland including the replacement of a bronze statue stolen more than forty years ago. In 2007 we completed renovation of the G.A.R. burial plot in the Eugene Pioneer Cemetery.|
The picture is of my son Andrew and I at the Portland G.A.R. Cemetery for the dedication ceremony on May 30, 2009.
I am willing to transfer any of my memorials to relatives of the deceased.

You put a nice portrait of Emory Parady on his page.
His Find A Grave #= 10412168
Just so you will know, I was out to the cemetery today taking pictures of a grave and Emory's stone was near by and was in a great position in the sun to get really good pics of his stone so I got them and added a couple new, better pics to his page. The building you see in the background is part of the huge indoor mausoleum building in this cemetery. There are 100,000 people interred in that building and about 150,000 in the rest of the cemetery.
Thanks for catching the duplicate. I have removed it.

I have recently been researching the servicemen and women who were buried at Magdalen Hill Cemetery in Winchester, Hampshire England in WW1. I live in the same road as this cemetery so it has become of great interest to me. During my research I discovered that there were 551 US Service Personnel buried there. In 1920 The Home Office contacted the local council to request their assistance in exhumations of the deceased service personnel. The families of the deceased were consulted and asked for their requests for the final resting place of their loved ones. Many of the Servicemen/women were returned to their families in the US. Some were re-interred in the Brookwood Military Cemetery in Surrey and only 6 remained in Winchester. During the course of my research I came across the following record and thought you might like the information:
Marion Pennington, died Easton Military Hospital in Southern England. Age 19yrs. Buried 12 April 1918. Exhumed 23 April 1920.
There is no cause of death given but it would appear that the servicemen were dying of pneumonia and influenza. Is it possible that these servicemen were struck down in France and returned to the nearest Military Hospital in Southern England where they passed away, and were laid to rest until the end of the War?
I hope this small snippet of information may be of use to you.
