Volunteers honor vets, pioneers buried in Clackamas

A team of researchers has spent the past year poring through records, documenting burials and mapping one of the oldest cemeteries in Clackamas County.

Clackamas Pioneer Cemetery is home to 72 veterans of the armed services: two from the Indian Wars, 30 from the Civil War, two from the Spanish-American War, 14 from World War I, 10 from World War II, two Vietnam vets and the remainder serving during peacetime. The new map of all known burials in the cemetery — both marked and unmarked — will be installed just prior to Memorial Day.
