AKA Little Plains Cemetery

According to the Madras Pioneer of 4 May 1905, a new cemetery was established on that date when Florence Keeney, age 10, was buried "on a plot of ground on the farm of J.W. Mendenhall where a cemetery is being started." This is probably referring to John Walter Mendenhall.

This burial grounds or small cemetery is believed to be the "Little Plains Cemetery" listed in the Oregon Burial Site Guide, 2001, Binford & Mort, Portland. According to this source, there are "a few graves" in the area of Metolius, not the same as Methodist Hill Cemetery. Location is given as T11S R13E S??

There are some Mendenhalls buried in Gray Butte Cemetery, but that cemetery was established well before 1905. The exact location is not known, and any assistance with this is appreciated.
