Oregon City Cemetery

Transcription completed on December 20, 2006. This is a private cemetery and 
active. Interments are original residents of the local area or their descendants. 
Cemetery is accessible between dawn and dusk. There are marked as well as 
unmarked graves. To locate the cemetery travel East on Highway 70 pass the 
city of Oroville about 12 miles. Take the Cherokee Road turn to the right. Go 5.3 
miles (3.3 miles pass the Cherokee Cemetery) to an intersection with a sign directing 
you to Oregon City and a covered bridge. The road is narrow but paved to this point. 
Go 3/10 mile pass the covered bridge and look for a dirt single track drive up the hill 
on the left. This will take you to the cemetery. There are no services, water or 
electricity so take a comfort break before you leave Oroville. GPS coordinates are 
N 39 35.407 and W 121 31.593 at an elevation of 1250 ft.

Information in the transcription in (parenthesis and italics) in the notes section are 
added by the transcriber. All other information is taken directly from the tombstones.
