Where Are They Buried?

We’ve gotten a number of emails from people who have found a relative on one of our patient lists. All of them wanted to know where their relative was buried. Unfortunately, we don’t have much information on patient burials, though we’re working on it. For now, here’s what we know: Cemeteries: Over the years, Morningside Hospital patients were buried in multiple cemeteries. During the 1940’s and 1950’s, Multnomah Park Pioneer Cemetery and Greenwood Hills Cemetery were the sites of patient burials. We located a few patient graves at Greenwood Hills, but most are unmarked or grown-over. Multnomah Park Pioneer Cemetery is still in operation but Greenwood Hills is basically closed to new burials and is managed by a group of people living in the neighborhood. Karen and I visited Greenwood Hills Cemetery and I’ll post more on it in the future. Other Possible Sources of Information: Genealogy Resources: Out of the resources below, the Family Search site, which is maintained by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is the best and most complete.

    1. Apply for Oregon Death Certificate which tells funeral home and cemetery.
    2. Even though cemetery is listed it may take more research because of the changes in owernship. Contact the Oregon Cemetary Board at (971) 673-1500 (I found them helpful).
    3. Then contact the cemetery for their records.

    Those are my thoughts.

    Here is the website for 14 Oregon Pioneer Cemeteries and where I found the location of James Ebana (Ebeno) at Multnomah Pioneer Cemetery. You may be able to search here for names. May also need to use alternative spellings.

    I am with the Friends of Multnomah Park Pioneer Cemetery. If you need a photo of the cemetery or would like for one of us to search for a headstone, please let us know. Most of the burials at Multnomah Park have at least a temporary stone that is just under the surface of the turf. We are pleased to help if we can.
