rearding transfers: PLEASE read Find A Graves policy on transfers before you ask for a memorial to be transferred. We have found several memorials transferred to someone claiming to be a relative only to find nothing done with updating, or adding pertinent information. You can add photos. You can correct/add information. Use the edit button, or add photos button. Thank you.

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.

I am researching the Coverdale family and have no record of this person. In your memorial you have h/o Concetta which I would guess is husband of right.? Is Mae male? Any information would be helpful.

After writing my thank you for the photo you took of Clara Cheska curiosity reigned and I went to your message page. The "story" of you two sounds much like what we are doing at Clackamas Pioneer. We also do research to "find" unmarked USA veterans graves and then apply to the VA for markers.

Great work guys!

Thank you Ivenio. We are part of a small group of volunteers working on upgrading records/findagrave memorials added/photos etc at Clackamas Pioneer Cemetery. Clara had connection to CPC via children This helps make the circle of family even more complete!!

52068874: William A Smith

Wm Billy Smith (as your grave marker shows) was my Great Grandfather.

Please transfer this memorial to me.
1. He was my great grandfather
2. I have been to this cemetery to find his grave
3. I have family photos and records
4. I have info on marriages, kids etc
5. Check my Find a grave profile to show I am a long time researcher.

1. correct spelling on your transfer info it says rearding transfers instead of regarding transfers .

2. There is a duplicate memorial in same cemetery 107136082 for William Amos Smith (aka Mysterious Billy Smith) listed by anonymous who has messages disabled.

Thank you in advance,
Chris Sigler

Hi Dave and Eric, I found the newspaper article that talks about the deaths of both Rintoul children and their mom and step-dad.
It can be found at Daily Capital Journal--June 9, 1911
Your memorials look great! Great job and kudos to both of you. Sue

Howard and Myrtle McElroy
Hello Dave or Eric;
There is a memorial for Myrtle McElroy at Mutlnomah Park but she is actually buried at Lone Fir? Went over to MP to see if there was some indication that she was with her husband, Howard and it turns out that Howard's marker is gone. Someone dug it up but it looks like it was just left lying on the ground? Too bad. I would suggest that Myrtle's memorial be removed. Thanks for your time. Dave
