Obituary answers questions about names on headstone

This past week I took a stroll through the Historic Eugene Masonic Cemetery and photographed a few  headstones that rest among the fir trees, ferns and playful gray squirrels that dart from here to there. The cemetery organization has done a wonderful job restoring the cemetery but at the same time  maintaining the native vegetation.  Visit their website for more information about their efforts and search the online database of burials.  EugeneMasonicCemetery
The obituary in the Morning Register (Eugene, OR),  brings together the names listed on the headstone.
