I am a fifth generation Oregonian but currently live in Winchester, Virginia. I am active in the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War and work to repair, replace, or mark the graves of Civil War veterans buried in Oregon. In 2009 we completed renovation of the Grand Army of the Republic Cemetery in Portland including the replacement of a bronze statue stolen more than forty years ago. In 2007 we completed renovation of the G.A.R. burial plot in the Eugene Pioneer Cemetery.
The picture is of my son Andrew and I at the Portland G.A.R. Cemetery for the dedication ceremony on May 30, 2009.
I am willing to transfer any of my memorials to relatives of the deceased.
