The grave marker shown above has been located on a run down property in Portland, Oregon during a renovation. Your help is needed in understanding more about the marker and hopefully return it to the family of the persons listed on the marker.
Grave Marker Details
Francis Day Manin
1909 – 1974
Susan Manin Smith
Teddy Templeton Jr.
1955 – 1975
Also inscribed in the upper left: “15-428.” Could this be a plot number meaning the marker was removed from a cemetery?
The Power of Collaborative Research
I know that the genealogy community is good at these collaborative projects and we appreciate the sense of stewardship that the general contractors have for the marker. Let’s help reunite it with the family and perhaps learn why it ended up at this abandoned property.
Note: Please don’t post information on living persons and don’t contact the descendants or owners directly. Email me at email@example.com and I’ll pass on contact info to the property owners so they can reach out to the family.
