From Interstate HWY I-5, take the Clackamas Exit 12A southbound
or Exit 12 northbound and go east on Hwy 224. Follow Hwy 224 approximately
17 miles, and then go east on SE Heiple Road. Turn right on SE Eagle
Creek Road. There is a grocery store about a mile on the east side
of the road. The cemetery is on the west side of the road just south
of the store.
The Currin Cemetery is visible from SE Eagle Creek Road and has
a chain link fence surrounding it. The property is owned by the
Gillilands and permission must be requested to access the cemetery.
Bill Linn, the current owner, stated his father had removed many
wooden markers and replaced them with cement and plaques which
would account for the lack of information on some of the tombstones.
It is partially maintained by the owners of the surrounding property.
The Currin Cemetery was established in 1855 with the first burial
of a Mrs. Waldrip. It is on the Hugh and Diona Currin donation
land claim No 40, Clackamas County, Oregon. It is currently owned
by William R Linn and Salena H Linn, descendants of the Currins.
Its location is T3S R4E Sec 8, Tax Lot 2000, Clackamas County,
Oregon and contains less than one acre.
A complete inventory including tombstone photos and family photos
where available has been undertaken with the help of a grant from
the Oregon Historic Cemetery Commission. Documented information
has been obtained through family records and histories, genealogy
websites, and county records.
