Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy began 64 years ago when I followed my mother's and grandmother's conversations as they traced relationships of their friends and family.

My memorials are family members, then relatives of relatives. My childhood piano teacher and other early settlers, friends of my parents and grandparents were next. Being from a small Nebraska town, this can be quite involved. But interesting. Very interesting.

As a Find A Grave photo volunteer for Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery, I sometimes stumble - literally - over a neglected or forgotten grave marker. I add information or create memorials for the lives I discover in this way.

RE: Laralf (Ralph) Haug
Linda, I meant to tell you, about three spaces to the left of Ralph's grave was another Haug name.
It was so hot, I couldn't pursue fixing it for filming. A woman's name.. If you want, I will go back and do it..Lora

RE: Haug in Riverview
Hello Linda, I was unable to find any other Haugs at River View. I will keep my eyes open when visiting other cemeteries.

Have a wonderful day,

Thank you so much for the picture of Tillie LeMar's headstone! We were in Portland a few years ago, but did not know then where she was buried. I really appreciate your help! Barb J.

I would like to thank you for investigating through debris and organic cover under that large fir tree looking for Estellas' marker.
Being such an old resting place, it seems that time and weather may have caused 7 markers to disappear. Thank you again for searching.

On another note. A Great Uncle passed away in the Portland area back in 1961
Laralf (Ralph) E Haug
Birth: 1902 Bellingham, WA
Death: May 6, 1961 (59)
Multnomah, OR, USA

If you are willing to check your sources and maybe find and create a Find A Grave burial site that would be wonderful. I have come to a road block for a burial site. I understand completely if you are too busy, or if this is something that can not be done easily.

Than you again for this great service you do for families of passed loved ones.

Mary (Stubbs) Atkinson
Many thanks for the excellent photography. Here's a good example that highlights the unreliability of some cemetery records. The family takes it for granted that Mary is buried there; after all, they left floral tributes on the grave for many years on Memorial Day. The records appear to support this. But what to do when definitive proof is lacking? There's really nowhere else to turn, unfortunately. As you suggest, I will ask Lone Fir to do a Lot/Plot search and see what comes up. The original cemetery records were lost or destroyed (perhaps intentionally) during a period of mismanagement in the 1920's, prior to Multnomah County's assumption of responsibility for the cemetery. The current lists were largely compiled from cobbled-together resources after the period of mismanagement. They are, therefore, by no means complete nor accurate. What a pity that such a gorgeous and historic burial ground should suffer such an indignity.
