Simmons Cemetery
Marion County, Oregon

Lat: 4505'12"N, Lon: 12247'16"W
T5S R1W Sec 34

Contributed by Shelli Steedman, Jan 07, 2003, updated Jul 04, 2003 [ssteedman51@hotmail.com]. Total records = 179.

From Interstate 5, take the Mt. Angel exit. Go east on Highway 214 also known as Newberg Highway. When the road branches, continue S/SW on Highway 214. At the intersection where Highway 214 branches into 99e, turn SE onto Highway 214. There is also a Mt. Angel sign. The cemetery is located on a hillside off an unmarked road just before Domonic Road on the east side of the road, northeast of Mount Angel.

The cemetery is located on a hillside off an unmarked road just before Domonic Road after you turn off of highway 214. It can be seen from the highway. This cemetery started in 1852 and the last burial was in 1998.

I walked this cemetery and transcribed all existing headstones on Jan 05, 2003. Due to the poor condition of the headstones and dark conditions, it was difficult to differentiate some numbers like 0,3,8. I hope to return in the summer and scrub the stones that are difficult to read and make any necessary changes.

I walked the cemetery in Jan 2003 and again Jul 2003. Several corrections were made after cleaning some of the stones.
