Pounder Cemetery Corbett Oregon

Pounder Cemetery Corbett Oregon

The Pounder Cemetery is just outside of Corbett Oregon at 377-55 NE Littlepage Rd. about 50 feet down an unmarked dirt road. This is a little known cemetery – so little known that even the owner is unknown. In the 1990s it had cattle roaming in it and was maintained by a local farmer.

When I visited recently the grass was slightly overgrown but obviously maintained. I am not able to find any history on the cemetery. As there are no Pounder family members buried here, I’m assuming it was named after nearby Pounder Creek. But, it may have been called Sunset at one time.

    • The Oregon Burial Guide is source for the claim that the owner was not identified. The Multnomah County Tax Map shows the cemetery is a separate tax lot, but it does come under the George’s name now.
