Finland Cemetery (Finnish Cemetery)
Midway, Umatilla County, Oregon

Lat: 45° 47' 01"N, Lon: 119° 39' 48"W
T4N R33E Sec 34

Contributed by Rella Gleaton, Nov 01, 2005 [rella@ultraplix.com]. Total records = 146.

From State Highway 335 turn west onto Midway Road, then go 1/2 mile to Enbysk Rd. At this intersection sits the Finnish Apostolic Lutheran Church, turn right, or North onto Enbysk Rd driving on a dirt lane 1/2 mile up the slope to the cemetery that sits on the hill in the middle of farm ground.

This cemetery was established by the church shortly after the Finnish Apostolic Lutheran Church was founded in 1884. It is well maintained and still in use.

The cemetery is fenced and has several old trees within its boundary. It is located near Greasewood Creek. Because of that some refer to it as the Greasewood Cemetery.

Many of the stones have the information written in the Finn language and I don't read it. We figured out that Synt means born and Kuoll means died. (If you need clarification on any of these headstones, we will be glad to send a photo copy as some have more information than we could transcribe.)

Jim Gleaton and I walked and recorded these headstones on Sep 02, 2005, using a digital camera. Individual photos available by email.
