Cemetery notes and/or description:
Claypool Cemetery, also known as Claypool/Parrish, was established in 1861 on a portion of the Rev. Reuben Claypool's donation land claim North of Brownsville, Linn County, Oregon, Township 13S, Range 2W, Section 5. There is no sign indicating its location, so GPS coordinates are very helpful. To get there, park along the edge of Brownsville Rd., climb over a gate, and walk uphill some distance through pasture, woods, blackberries, and poison oak. It's surrounded by a chainlink fence, barely visible in the undergrowth, and the entire plot is uncared for. It should be noted that this approach is actually to the back of the cemetery as the gate opens onto an equally overgrown old road on the opposite side. Many of the stones are covered with moss and are unreadable, and some have been dislodged from their original sites by falling trees, vandals, or can't be found at all.

Note: The cemetery was cleaned up by The Santiam Wilderness Academy Fields Project in 2009-2010, funded by the Oregon Commission on Historic Cemeteries, the Oregon Youth Conservation Corps, and the Community Services Consortium in Lebanon, Oregon. A book and CD were made listing the gravestones they found, documenting the size and inscription of each. The headstones were cleaned and a photo was taken of each. The book and CD are available at the Lebanon Genealogical Society in Lebanon, Oregon. (CD 1 979.5 Linn)
