Western Union Cemetery

History of area

Thanks to Candace, Hillsboro, Oregon

 

I saw your cemetery lists on the genweb for Washington Co., Oregon. I live near the West Union Baptist Church and cemetery and have been making a list of the gravestones. I am now making a second pass through the cemetery to make corrections to my original list. I don't know when I'll be able to finish up this job, but I'm hoping to finish by the end of June. If this is something you can use for the Washington Co. site, let me know and I will e-mail the list to you.   Candace Lazzaro


 

Here is the West Union inscriptions letters A-F. Hope to get the rest to you by the end of the week.
