Virtual Cemetery

The Friends of Multnomah Park Cemetery have set up a Virtual Cemetery listing the patients of Morningside Hospital (8 so far).  The links from the name or the burial marker take you to additional information about the person.

The director of Morningside sent a letter to the Secretary of the Interior each time a patient died. On March 1, 1937, Wayne Coe sent the following letter to Secretary of the Interior about Joe Falardeau, whose grave is included in the Virtual Cemetary:


Permit us to inform you herewith that our patient, Joe Falardeau No. 1269 who was admitted into our hospital, June 14, 1929 from Cordova died February 26th, 1937. The cause of death was Cerebral Thrombosis. The body was turned over to Holman & Lutz of this city for burial in Multnomah Cemetery.

Respectfully yours,

Wayne W. Coe

    My paternal grandmother Ida M Scott was at Morningside Hospital from approximately 1929 (1930) to July 24, 1961 when she passed. We know she was buried in Greenwood Hills Cemetery and have visited her grave (when we could find it). We would like to have as much of her records as we can possibly obtain. Her absence has created a missing link in our family history.
    Ida was married to Aaron M Scott, they had five children together before she was institutionalized from Valdez Alaska.

    Re: Ida Scott: We have obtained a copy of her death certificate and can send it to you if you want. Unfortunately, all medical records from Morningside Hospital are lost and presumed destroyed.
