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: http://www.oregonmetro.gov/index.cfm/go/by.web/id=12692
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.

Thank You! For adding a photo of my grandmother's grave marker. I appreciate it, and I know she would appreciate your efforts!
|Eleanor Morrison Lawson||Hill, Morrison Lyda, Tinsley, Jones and others|
Thank both of you so very much for all you do for others through this work with Find A Grave. I have been on my genealogy journey since the 1980's and because of age and health can no longer visit cemeteries. It means a lot to me to see the graves and markers. I hope you won't mind my making copies of your photos for my family files. I am fighting so hard trying to get all of my family history verified and on Ancestry and Family Tree Maker so that my descendants and others who may be connected may be able to see their heritage. It is a continuing effort to verify the things that I already have on my file. God bless you both in every effort you make to help others. I hope everybody appreciates you as much as I do.

Someone has uploaded 5 incorrect photos of grave memorials to her posting. I have left him a public message requesting that these be removed so I can upload the correct one. I have no idea what this guy was doing, uploading the Palmers that he could find?

Thank you for your time.
|C & D Lund||Thomas Blencoe|
I first want to say thank you. I was so happy to find and see a memorial for my uncle, Thomas Henry Blencoe # 47369798. I have his parents and siblings and would love to add him to my memorials. Would you please consider in making a transfer to me?
Thank you Debbie Blencoe-Lund

Thank you for checking for me.

Thank you very much for the picture of my birth mothers last husband.I was hoping she may have been buried beside him. She has been an extreme challenge to locate her final resting place. I really appreciate your work finding memorials! Thanks again and may God bless You.
|Kathie L. Webb Blair||RE: IOOF photos|
Dear Eric & David,
Sorry, but I forgot that those photos are on my other cell phone that I had to use temporarily while waiting for my "new" cell phone to be fixed (needed a new charger). I'm hoping to hire my friend's son to take the "old" phone to Verizon to get all pictures downloaded so I can keep them. Will try to get IOOF pictures, such as they are, sent to you at that time. So much for progress in the computer age.
With All Sincerity,
Kathie L. Webb Blair
(at home with my kitties!)
