JOSEPH and CLARA are MISSING!
Please help locate and return this headstone to its place in the cemetery
The young daughter off Stephen S. & Jennie D. Bailey drowned in January, 1881. Joseph died as an infant.
Sadly, the headstone went missing near the end of January, 2017.
The list of burials is an abridged version of the database for the Marshfield Pioneer Cemetery. The initial data was derived directly from entries in the two handwritten logbooks kept by the secretary for the Odd Fellows Cemetery Corporation that are now archived at the Coos Bay City Hall and Sunset Memorial Park. Entries were sporadic after about 1920. Data has been added from additional sources including:
Copies of the database may be viewed at:
- transcriptions from the cemetery headstones
- published obituaries and other newspaper articles
- books on local history
- a typed transcript of the Coos Bay logbook with additional notations
- a list compiled by the Young Women's Mutual Improvement Association - dated April 21, 1965
- some verification from State of Oregon death certificates
- information contributed by descendants and genealogical researchers
