The Tillamook County
Tombstone Transcription Project

In the early 1960s, the Tillamook County Pioneers (J. Leland Bester, President) began compiling records from county cemeteries. E. Ray Measor coordinated the project, with help from Louise W. Goodrich. Members of the Tillamook Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution assisted. Most of the information you see here is taken from the resultant 1965 publication.

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) Cemetery Survey, published in 1978, was also used as a reference. This publication is available at many Oregon public libraries. Data includes detailed location descriptions and condition reports, as noted during the survey period. Since that time, many small grave sites have been adversely impacted by weather, vegetation and development.

Guidance and further details have been provided by the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum, which holds the original document published by the Pioneers, as well as many other records pertaining to burials in the county. The staff welcomes inquiries.

We are grateful to the Pioneers and many others who had the foresight to record what was rapidly being lost. Thanks also to Carol Brown, Director of the museum, who is dedicated to providing a home for genealogical material; Ruby Fry-Matson, Administrative Assistant, whose cheerful and efficient help is a pleasure; and the Tillamook County Historical Society and its Genealogy Study Group, for their support and encouragement. Genealogy Group President Bob Reid generously offered his proofreading assistance, as did Laqueda Mahoney, who also provided technical expertise.
