PORTLAND EVERGREEN CEMETERY
Dates are for deaths from the actual cemetery books unless noted otherwise
* Denotes ADDED data from various sources; Use as a guide ONLY
The book from about 1919- 1930 gives death date or burial dates and lot no only no ages, I have done my best to find approx ages from census and other data; Several Surnames are mis-spelled in these records also ex; COVEY instead of the correct CONEY an d in some years the lot number is not noted;
The burials from `1807 to 1911 are in different books and I do not yet have access to these, but have added what I could find from that period of the earliest settlers to Portland

SPECIAL CREDITS:  Please note that JIM BOLTZ copied the old books and provided the paper copies of Portland Cemetery.
We still do not have the burials before 1911 book records yet; but we would have nothing with out Jim's efforts.  DPD
