Something Else

Working on getting a picture of it right now. Today I am in touch [from my home in Wyoming] with the grounds keeper of the Bridgeport cemetery. Also, the reason I came across this is because of a July 26, 1912 newspaper article [that I have in my possession] from the Bridgeport Newsblade (or Kimball paper?) regarding the obtaining of the monument. In the article is mention of my Grandfather, Dr. W.J. Scoggin, who was at that time the Secretary of the Commercial Club, who had asked for a "contribution to assisting in the erection of a monument at the grave of Mrs. Larnin (Lannin?) along the Oregon Trail." I can send you a copy of that newspaper correspondence article if you like. Also in my possession is a copy of another article dated Aug 23, 1912 in which my grandfather received notice that "the monument marking the last resting place of Mrs. Lannin on the old trail southeast of Bridgeport had been shipped and also one to be erected in Forest Lawn Cemetery, through which the trail passes." The Oregon Trail Memorial Cemetery used to go by the name of Forest Lawn Cemetery.
