I know that Arthur's wife Ella Mae died 09 Sep 1994 in Portland and is buried in the Portland Cemetery. His son Terrel David Barton died in Portland on 17 Aug 1989 at 28 years old I would like obits on him and his mother if there is an obit archive. I do not find Arthur in the white pages so he might also have died. If anyone knows members of this family please give them my email bill-lewis(at)sbcglobal.net
My mom did genealogy for 50 years and I am trying to update her information. If someone visits the cemetery I would appreciate any headstone photos.
