Dr. Robert Cardwell
Thank you for,sponsoring the memorial for Dr. Cardwell. He certainly made a significant contribution to Oregon. His sister, Orlena was my GGM and I had headstones installed for her and her sister Martha Cardwell Dalton (at Lone Fir)who worked with the suffragists in getting women the right to vote.

I received a notification that you sponsored his memorial. I was wondering if you'd like it to be transferred to your care.
