Gardiner Cemetery

Gardiner Cemetery
located in Gardiner, Douglas County, Oregon

The cemetery is terraced into the hillside on the north end of what remains of Gardiner, Oregon. Most of the headstones are quite old and some are struggling with the elements and the passage of time. These gravestones belong, for the most part, to the early pioneers of the area.






This picture shows how steep the hillside is with the reference of a 6' tall man.

Born November 7, 1849
Died - July 11, 1876

The bed frame above the grave is rusted, but in remarkable shape for being close to the ocean and in a very wet environment. I have seen these bed frames before and assume that it is a symbol of an everlasting resting place, but have not been able to find a reference in the guides to cemetery symbology. If anyone has a reference to direct me to, I would appreciate it.


We were not able to spend a lot of time here - racing a bit between the raindrops and in search of a meal. We had read that there was an upcoming community of artists and small bistros in Gardiner - their demise preceded our arrival, but their previous existence allowed us to discover this pioneer cemetery.

Gardiner was a harbor community along the Umpqua River. It was founded by merchant Gardiner when his ship wrecked - what was salvaged was moved here and it became a town. It became a noted port for wood mills and wood products. Destroyed by fire in 1880, the town was quickly rebuilt and became one of the busiest port cities on the Oregon coast. It not only shipped out of the area, but ran paddle wheel boats up the Umpqua River. The mills and paper companies were active until 1999. They have since been razed and the land lies empty.

From- Oregon Geographic Names:

Gardiner is on the north bank of the Umpqua River nearits mouth. It is an historic community of Oregon, and bears the name of a Boston merchant who sought to trade on the river. His vessel, Bostonian, was wrecked at the mouth of the Umpqua on October 1, 1850. Most of the goods on the vessel were saved and moved to the location of what was subsequently the town of Gardiner. The place became the headquarters of the Umpqua customs district in 1851, with Colin Wilson as collector. The community is described in the Oregonian for June 23, 1855. The post office of Gardiner's City was established on June 10, 1851, with George L Snelling first postmaster. The form Gardiner City was used on October 20, 1853, which was the date that Harrison Spicer became postmaster. The official name is now Gardiner.

Lung On & Ing Hay ~ Kam Wah Chung


Lung On
1863 - 1940



Ing Hay
1862 - 1952


Welcome to Kam Wah Chung
In 1890, you would be standing in the middle of a bustling Chinatown. Businesses all around you, the temple in front and Kam Wah Chung -- the core of the community -- would be to your left. Why is it the only building remaining? Why did Lung On and Doc Hay stay when the rest of the Chinese community left?

Kam Wah Chung & Co - front and back



Pulses, Plants & Persistence
Around the turn of the 20th century, the gold played out and the once bustling Chinese community melted away. But by now Doc Hay and Lung On - Leon as he was known to the townspeople - were valued members of the community, sto they staye on, and Kam Wah Chung and Co prevailed.

The Enterprising Adventurer
Unlike most Chinese who came to the U.S., Lung On could have stayed home, but adventure beckoned. A shrewd businessman, he stocked Chinese goods desired by locals and sold 'Japanese' goods when anti-Chinese sentiments ran high. At his death in 1940, he owned mines, an auto dealership and rental property along MainStreet.

Plants and Pulses
Feeling your pulse to find out what ailed you? Giving you concoctions of strange herbs to cure you? Doc Hay was probably a last resort for the first non-Chinese to see him, but word quickly spread that he cured ills with his herbs and concoctions, bringing patients from hundreds of miles away.



The Golden Flower of Prosperity
Imagine journeying to a distant, strange land where you are a minority; you don't speak the language and hostility is common. That was a reality for Chinese immigrants to Central Oregon in the 1800's. For those who reached John Day, Kam Wah Chung -- the Golden Flower of Prosperity -- was a lifeline, linking them to loved ones and to the lives they once lived.


The Golden Mountain Beckons

Would You Leave Home
No food, no work and little hope in war-torn China. Across the Pacific, the Golden Mountain (California) beckons. The catch? Perhaps never seeing your wife, children and home again.

The Way to John Day
In the late 1800's massive hydraulic mining operations based in nearby Canyon City needed cheap labor. Word spread and the Chinese came by the thousands. By 1885, almost everyone in Canyon City employed a Chinese laborer. When their homes and businesses burned later that year, many Chinese moved to the thriving Chinatown centered at Kam Wah Chung.

Buried in the peaceful Rest Lawn Cemetery in John Day, Oregon are the Chinese gentlemen that settled in and became part of the community. Lung On and Ing 'Doc' Hay were from the Canton region of China. They came to the U. S. for opportunity and eventually met in John Day, Oregon with the influx of Chinese drawn to the gold mines -- Ing Hay as a healer and Lung On as an entrepreneur -- and formed a partnership which was to last throughout their lives.

During the Great Depression, Lung On, Doc Hay and a wealthy local rancher were determined not to allow the banks to close and financially kept them open, kept credit alive and allowed the people in the community to survive the depression. Lung On also opened the first auto dealership in Eastern Oregon in 1921. For periods of time, Doc Hay was the only doctor for miles - more than several days of travel time.

Our day trip to drive to the eastern part of the state to visit the museum was a wonderful day. We enjoyed the museum immensely - they have restored the house and kept as much in tact as possible. It is like stepping back into the turn of the 20th Century. Unfortunately, the museum is not open all of the time and you need to plan for your visit. (Times at the bottom of the piece) We got lucky, as we did not know how limited access was, and were able to get on a tour.

Historically, this was a time of virulent anti-Chinese sentiment, yet these two men became a much loved and respected part of the community. They were buried in the local cemetery among the non-Chinese as a sign of the place they had been given in the community.

Kam Wah Chung & Co Museum
The Kam Wah Chung and Co. Museum and Interpretive Center is open May 1 - Oct. 31, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Call (541) 575-2800 or (800) 551-6949 for more information.

The house sits on a lovely city park and would be a perfect place for a picnic.
Prior to entry, you must enter the Visitor's Center to get your complimentary passes, as they only allow a limited number in the building each hour. It is not a place for young children - all standing and listening. If you get to the Visitor's Center early enough, you can watch some great videos about the Museum and the men. Ask and they will direct you to the cemetery where you can pay your respects to Lung On and Ing Hay.

Oregon Public Broadcasting
You can watch the special they did online at http://www.opb.org/programs/oregonexperience/programs/20-Kam-Wah-Chung

National Park Service
The best Internet piece I have found http://www.nps.gov/history/nr/feature/asia/2005/kam.htm

This was a remarkable day - we wish we had over-nighted and spent more time in the valley. I would have loved to have transcribed the cemetery.

I Want My Global Warming

I was really looking forward to Walking in Graveyards today. I planned to start a new one that I am particularly fond of, and want to finish before the winter sets in. However, it's getting ready to snow...

Usually, the end of September and beginning of October is Indian Summer - not snow. And, I love Indian Summer days.

I want my Global Warming.

Update: Friday and Saturday were cold with intermittent showers, hail, corn snow, but Sunday morning, I woke to about 3" of very wet snow covering everything - including those deciduous trees that haven't even lost their leaves yet. Insane weather! Glad the wood is in and split!

Second Update: That heavy wet snow took a toll on the trees - throughout town, trees are down, huge branches are broken and shrubs are mangled. Really a destructive little storm!

Collision kills two at Bend intersection
By Tom Peterson
- Bend Bulletin
Published: August 10. 2002

Two Central Oregonians died late Thursday night and two more were critically injured when the Honda Civic they were riding in ran a stop sign and was hit by a pickup in southeast Bend.

The driver of the Civic, Tonrell William Brooker, 22, of Redmond died at St. Charles Medical Center. Krystal E. Raines-Wilhite, 17, of Crooked River Ranch was pronounced dead at the scene.

Also injured were Brooker's three other passengers, Nicole Marie Hinds, 15, Rebecca Jo Griggs, 16, both of Redmond, and James Dean "JD" Robinson, 20, of Bend.

Hinds was in critical condition Friday evening with head and internal injuries. She also suffered multiple broken bones. Robinson was in serious condition with a broken pelvis, broken bones around his right eye and an injury to his right arm.

Griggs suffered cuts to her face and a broken nose. She was released from the hospital Friday morning.

Brooker had been drinking before the accident, according to the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office. Hinds' father, Mike, said hospital staff told him Brooker had a blood-alcohol content of 0.01 - well under the legal limit for drivers of 0.08 percent.

The sheriff's office sent a sample of Brooker's blood to the Oregon State Police crime lab, where it will be tested for alcohol and other drugs. Results are expected back in several weeks, said Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Patrol Capt. Tim Edwards.

Brooker was driving his 2,000-pound Civic hatchback west on China Hat Road at 11:17 p.m. when he failed to stop at the stop sign at Knott Road, authorities said.

As Brooker crossed the intersection, 33-year-old Neal Chavre of Bend and his 9-year-old daughter were driving south on Knott in a 7,500-pound Dodge Ram Diesel 4x4.

Chavre was unable to stop in time, and collided with Brooker. The driver's side of the pickup hit the passenger side of the Civic at about 40 to 45 mph, authorities said. Robinson was sitting in the front passenger seat, and Hinds was directly behind him.

An accident reconstruction team made up of officers from the Bend Police Department and Oregon State Police are still investigating the accident and have yet to determine the speed of the Civic.

Initial police reports, however, point out that Brooker was at fault for running the stop sign.

A good friend to the three injured girls said she was following Brooker just before the accident and stopped just seconds after it occurred.

"Their car was totaled, and no one in the car was talking," said Kim Mathiason, 17, of Crooked River Ranch. "Rebecca got out of the car and did not really know what was going on."

Dan MacCormack, 71, whose home is next to the intersection, said he was working on the Internet when he heard the collision.

"It sounded like an explosion. I heard a big bam, metal crunching and a girl screaming," he said. "It was bad news."

Deschutes County Sheriff's deputies were at the scene within three minutes, and firefighters soon followed.

Brooker and Hinds were transported via Air Life Helicopter to St. Charles. The three other passengers in the Honda were taken to the hospital via ambulance.

The Chavres suffered no significant injuries, according to police reports.

On Friday, relatives of Hinds and Robinson gathered in a waiting room outside the hospital's intensive care unit.

Hinds' mother, Carroll, only asked the community to pray for her daughter.

News of Raines-Wilhite's death stunned her friends and family. She had just celebrated her 17th birthday Sunday.

Her father, Jeffery Raines, described his daughter as "very determined, very outgoing."

She was also praised for her singing voice.

"She was robbed last night. She had a 3.9 grade point average," he said. "She was looking forward to being an attorney or a teacher.

"She was really looking forward to graduating early this year as a junior," he said. "We had colleges knocking left and right. She was really looking forward to moving up in the world and broadening her horizons."

Krystal belonged to the Redmond Teen Court and had been active in it for four or five years, her father said. A service for the teen will be held at a later date at the City Center Foursquare Church in Redmond.

Contributions can be made to cover Krystal's funeral costs to an account at the Redmond branch of U.S. Bank. For more information, call the bank at 548-1071.

Brooker moved to an apartment in Redmond several months ago from Washington, according to his neighbor, Laura Laszik. There is no record of him attending Redmond High School.

Hinds has been a cheerleader, on the dance team and loved to perform and sing, said Glenn Swearingen, Redmond High School choir teacher. Swearingen lives just two houses down from the Hindses.

"Oh, whenever Nicole's around, there's never a dull moment. That's the best way to put it. She's a live wire," he said, adding that she skipped a grade because she is so bright. She will be a junior this fall at Redmond High.

"I just hope Nicole pulls through and makes it here. Our prayers are with her," Swearingen said.

Griggs' mother, Holly, said her daughter came home from the hospital Friday.

"She's home, but she's in a lot of pain," Holly said Friday evening. "We're very grateful that she was wearing her seat belt."

James Robinson was a ninth-grader in the fall of 1996 at Redmond High for a while and then transferred to Baker City High School, according to Redmond High School Principal Dan Purple.

Neighbors living next to Knott and China Hat say the intersection is dangerous and has an inordinate amount of accidents. China Hat Road, however, is well marked with stop signs and has rumble strips to warn drivers of the upcoming stop at Knott Road.

Neighbors said a roundabout would slow traffic, limiting the danger. The Bend City Council and the Deschutes County Commission discussed the intersection during a joint meeting in January.

Bend Traffic Safety Coordinator Deborah Hogan said in January that crash rates were higher at the intersection than in other places along China Hat and Knott roads.

Statistics show public safety agencies have responded to 17 accidents at the intersection since 1996, including one fatality last year and eight injuries. The 911 dispatch center has received 41 calls about accidents there. And, Hogan said, it's likely not all accidents were reported.

Because of a curve and a dip, westbound cars on Knott can't see far enough ahead to the intersection, traffic engineer Robin Lewis said in January. If a roundabout were built, signs would warn drivers in time to slow down and navigate the circle. It could cost about $150,000, including $1,500 for design and study.

Police report says Redmond man caused fatal car crash
By Tom Peterson - Bend Bulletin
Published: August 31. 2002

A Redmond man caused the Aug. 8 accident that killed himself and a teenager in southeast Bend, according to an Oregon State Police accident reconstruction report made public Friday.

Tonrell William Brooker, 22, of Redmond had four passengers in his 1983 Honda Civic while driving west on China Hat Road at 11:17 p.m. when he failed to stop at the stop sign at Knott Road and was hit by a 4x4 pickup, according to the report written by Senior OSP Trooper Joseph Craig.

"Brooker is singularly responsible for this collision, all vehicle damage, his own death and the death of Krystal (Willhite-) Raines, for failing to obey a traffic control device," Craig concluded.

Brooker and James Dean "JD" Robinson, 20, of Bend met with several people including Willhite-Raines, 17, of Crooked River Ranch, Nicole Hinds, 15, and Rebecca Jo Griggs, 16, both of Redmond at a Bend grocery store parking lot prior to the accident, according to witnesses interviewed after the accident.

The group then went searching for a party in the China Hat area in a caravan.

Willhite-Raines was driving her own car, and Hinds and Griggs were her passengers. At some time on Knott Road the girls decided to park the vehicle because it was low on gas, according to a witness. The three girls then climbed into the back seat of Brooker's Honda Civic.

"Witnesses stated that the Civic was traveling at a high rate of speed, 65-85 mph, and beer cans were being thrown from the vehicle. The witnesses observed the brake lights ‘flicker' for a second as (the Civic) ‘ran' the stop sign at an estimated speed of 65 mph."

As Brooker crossed the intersection, 33-year-old Neal Chavre of Bend and his 9-year-old daughter were driving south on Knott in a 6,800-pound Dodge Ram Diesel pickup. The driver's side of the pickup hit the passenger side of the Civic at about 44 mph, according to Craig's report.

Brooker had a blood-alcohol content of 0.014 percent, well below the legal maximum of 0.08 percent. Between five and seven beers were found in the Civic, Craig wrote.

Raines-Willhite was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Brooker died later at St. Charles Medical Center.

Hinds suffered broken bones, head and internal injuries. She remained in a coma in critical care at St. Charles on Friday.

Robinson suffered a broken pelvis, broken bones around his right eye and an injury to his right arm. He was discharged from St. Charles on Wednesday. Griggs was released from the hospital the day after the crash.

Two RHS students killed in car crash
By Mike Cronin, The Bend Bulletin
Published: November 18. 2002

Redmond High School officials will have counselors available today to help students and staff cope with the deaths of two students killed Friday night in a vehicle accident.

Oregon State Police Sgt. Aaron Olson said Gillian Friend, 16, of Terrebonne and Stuart Variz, 17 of Redmond were traveling to Colton on Highway 211 about six miles south of Estacada about 7:45 p.m. in a 1990 Mazda pickup.

Friend, who was driving, failed to negotiate a curve and drove off the highway down an embankment. The truck hit several trees and caught fire, Olson said in a news release.

Friend was thrown from the truck.

Emergency rescue personnel removed Variz, who was wearing a seat belt, from the vehicle. Both teenagers died at the scene.

Witnesses told police the boys were traveling at a "high rate of speed," Olson said. But investigators have not yet determined the vehicle's speed. The accident remains under investigation. A medical exam will be conducted, Olson said, but the results won't be known for seven working days.

Lauren Roland, who taught Friend and Variz social studies, described them as "quiet," "understated" and "really nice kids."

"It's always pleasant to come in and know that you have those kinds of kids in class," she said. "I feel real sorry for the families and what they're going through."

Redmond students and teachers will be able to obtain counseling at the school today.

"Our heart goes out to the families," said Dan Purple, principal of the roughly 1,700-student high school. "Whenever you lose members of the student body, it's a difficult time for staff and students."

The tragedy is the second accident in several months to claim the life of a Redmond High student.

In August, Crooked River Ranch's Krystal Elizabeth Raines-Willhite, 17, who was set to enter her junior year, died in a crash at the intersection of China Hat and Knott roads.

Oregon State Police Sgt. Aaron Olson said Gillian Friend, 16, of Terrebonne and Stuart Variz, 17 of Redmond were traveling to Colton on Highway 211 about six miles south of Estacada about 7:45 p.m. in a 1990 Mazda pickup.

Friend, who was driving, failed to negotiate a curve and drove off the highway down an embankment. The truck hit several trees and caught fire, Olson said in a news release.

Friend was thrown from the truck.

Emergency rescue personnel removed Variz, who was wearing a seat belt, from the vehicle. Both teenagers died at the scene.

Witnesses told police the boys were traveling at a "high rate of speed," Olson said. But investigators have not yet determined the vehicle's speed. The accident remains under investigation. A medical exam will be conducted, Olson said, but the results won't be known for seven working days.

Lauren Roland, who taught Friend and Variz social studies, described them as "quiet," "understated" and "really nice kids."

"It's always pleasant to come in and know that you have those kinds of kids in class," she said. "I feel real sorry for the families and what they're going through."

Redmond students and teachers will be able to obtain counseling at the school today.

"Our heart goes out to the families," said Dan Purple, principal of the roughly 1,700-student high school. "Whenever you lose members of the student body, it's a difficult time for staff and students."

The tragedy is the second accident in several months to claim the life of a Redmond High student.

In August, Crooked River Ranch's Krystal Elizabeth Raines-Willhite, 17, who was set to enter her junior year, died in a crash at the intersection of China Hat and Knott roads.
