RE: Zempke in Griffin Cemetery
I have finally resolved this issue. You have the name spelled wrong, and in the wrong cemetery. The name is Zemke, not Zempke, and some of the ones you named are buried in Stearns Cemetery at Talent, Oregon. If you go to that cemetery, you will find Edward F Zemke 1904-1978, Joan K Beck Zemke 1934-1992, and the pre-need marker for your cousin, Leslie Everett Zemke b. 1929. Also, from the SSDI & Oregon death index, there is this information:

From the Oregon death index:

Edward F Zemke b. 22Mar 1904, d. 1 Dec 1978 in Jackson Co., OR; spouse Viola
Viola L Zemke b. 12 Apr 1915, d. Apr 1996 in Burnt Ranch, Trinity Co., CA

Leslie Lawrence Zemke b. 15 Jun 1906, d. 28 Dec 1995 in Jackson Co., OR; spouse Ethel

Clarence Vic Zemke b. 17 Feb 1909, d. 10 Jun 1985 in Jackson Co., OR; spouse Lucille

Lucille Mariam Zemke b. 16 Aug 1916, d. 19 Dec 1995 in Jackson Co., OR; spouse Clarence

Raymond Wilber Zemke b. 1922, d. 12 Nov 2006 in Jackson Co., OR

Joan Kay Zemke b. 23 Jan 1934, d. 23 Jan 1992 in Jackson Co., OR; spouse Everet

Harvey Zemke d. 29 Nov 1941 in Jackson Co., OR. Harvey Henry Zemke b. 1923, d. 1941 is buried in the Mountain View Cemetery in Ashland, OR

Unnamed male Zemke d. 12 Aug 1964 in Jackson Co., OR - age 9 years

Clarence Victor Zemke b. 3 Jan 1956, d. 3 Mar 1990 in Jackson Co., OR

Gustav I Zemke d. 9 Feb 1960 in Jackson Co., OR; spouse Katharine
Gustov Theodore Zemke b. 1879, d. 1960 is buried in the Mountain View Cemetery in Ashland, OR

Katherine Elizabeth Zemke b. 1882, d. 1960 is buried in the Mountain View Cemetery in Ashland, OR

From the SSDI: Ethel Estelle Zemke b. 9 Jul 1911, d. 1 Nov 2010 in Talent, Jackson Co., OR

I only selected those who died in Jackson County. Most of those died in Talent.

I hope this helps you. Now, please delete your Zempke memorial from Griffin Creek Cemetery.

Thanks
