The Infamous Black Bird Southern Oregon History, Revised

Notes on Eastwood Cemetery

    The Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War have, through the courtesy of L. O. Howard, sexton, secured what they believe to be a complete list of the graves of Civil War veterans in the I.O.O.F. cemetery in Medford.
    The list has been placed in the Chamber of Commerce, and the patriotic organization urges anyone having veteran relatives or friends buried in the cemetery consult the list and if [the] grave is not on it, leave name and location of grave so that no grave of a Civil War veteran may be without  flag on Decoration Day.
