ca. 50 burials
Also known as the Wright Family Cemetery, 12 members of the Wright family are buried on the site, including Jackson Wright and his wife, Marinda Jane. Both of their families traveled on the Oregon Trail. Jackson’s family originally settled in Douglas County but moved to Union County in 1875. A 1902 county history described him as having extensive real estate and a productive farm.
