About the cemetery

Echo Memorial Cemetery

Umatilla County
Established ca. 1868
ca. 1,705 burials


The City of Echo and the Echo Memorial Cemetery are named after Echo Koontz, daughter of James and Cynthia Hiatt Koontz, who were early residents of the area. Echo died in 1908 and is buried in the cemetery that bears her name. This is among the many Oregon cemeteries that were affiliated with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF), a benevolent fraternal organization.
