Eugene Masonic Cemetery map
Chris,

I was able to enlarge the cemetery map in the 4-page brochure & clarify many of the numbers so that it is usable to locate the plots. If you would like me to send it to you, write to me directly & I will send it to you as an attachment.

Thanks again for your help with the photo requests!

Craw grave photos
Chris, thank you very much for your efforts!

I have read other reports concerning the run-down condition of the cemetery, so your report does not surprise me at all. Apparently the overgrown look is by design?????

George's biography seems to indicate that he was somewhat prominent within the community, so he likely initally had a grave marker, but a lot of things can happen in a hundred years. His daughter Nellie (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=28040940) lived until 1954, so she would likely have made sure there was one.

Unfortunately, the online listing (www.eugenemasoniccemetery.org/burialEMCA-complete.pdf) does not indicate location, only that they were buried there somewhere. I don't know where Jessicado got the information that they were in plot 156 -- probably from some official list somewhere, but the clearest map I have found online (www.eugenemasoniccemetery.org/EMCAWalkingTour-web.pdf) does not list the actual plot numbers, so that isn't much help. The map on page 4 of this brochure (www.eugenemasoniccemetery.org/natural_history.pdf) is not very clear, but if you blow it up to about 200% magnification, you can almost read the numbers. It looks like plot 156 is due west of the "Public Square", almost to the western boundary of the cemetery.

That is the best that I can come up with to help in the search. Thanks again, and have a fantastic day!

Photo Request for Henry Alwood
Thank you Chris, for your diligent efforts.
Your help locating my cousin is greatly appreciated. Part of my photo request was to rule out the existence of Henry Alwood, because I actually believe this find-a-grave memorial page is in error, and that the name should be Henry ALFORD OR ALVORD.
I thank you for determining that no monument exists for Alwood.

Would you be so kind as to inquire of your contact person whether there are any ALFORDs or ALVORDs present?

I truly appreciate your assistance. The creator of the Find A Grave memorial page has been less than responsive.
Sincerely.
Alicia Houston
