Bio and Links
Bio Photo Currently I am working in the Mt. View Cemetery (Oregon City) in the County Park #1 section (paupers). It has been neglected for many many years. I have unearthed and photographed some 62 headstones and marked their rows. These folks deserve to have their graves maintained as much as anyone else in the cemetery.

I am a 6 generation Oregonian and have been doing my family genealogy since the early 70's. Back then it took months to find out one fact, today with the computer that information can be found in the blink of an eye.
Only now it seems more confusing the first thing I learned back then was to document all my information and make sure the facts were correct. Now a day's people just put anything on the internet only guessing or by family stories, making things more confusing. I am now trying to set apart family fact from fiction to keep the information correct for future generations to come.
I love doing genealogy it's a real life a good book you can't put down the only thing is I will probably never know the ending or the beginning.


I will not transfer my family memorials...sorry.

My memorials are family and a work in progress, adding to each one as I find family material and photos. I have traveled to Washington, California, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Kentucky doing my family research in cemeteries and historical societies. If you are family I would love to hear from you.

Family names:

I do photo requests and take photos while I am in the cemetery. I like to take more than one photo of the headstone, to give you the feeling of being there and seeing the surrounding area. If you would like me to remove any of my photos just ask.

One more thing.. if I find an error on any memorial I will ask for the mistake to be corrected. If it is a duplicate that needs to be removed or the addition of the plot location. I would like all memorials to be the best they can be.

Thank you Penny for the nice photos. It was very kind of you to take time out of your schedule to help. Always good to have a pic. that shows where the grave is within the cemetery, so thank you for the extra work that entails. I wasn't sure if you knew, but that photo is showing up sideways. Thanks too for claiming all of the requests there. I've submitted edits for those memorials, including for Bobbie. His place of birth, death on memorial are incorrect, so I've sent manager sources to correct that too. Thanks again for your kindness.

I recognized these ones:

Fred Force
Lillian Force (wife of George)
George Force (son of Fred)
Katherine McManus (sister of Fred)

Belva is buried there under name of Belva Jane Baker. (She was wife of Fred first)


Presumely that is different unit. Is it Austin R Baker? same spot.

Mae Westphal and Russell Morrison seem to be familiar but not the first 5 names (Green)
