About the cemetery

Paisley Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) Cemetery

Lake County
Established 1881
ca. 487 burials


This cemetery includes the grave of Scotsman Charles Innes. He is credited with naming the town after Paisley, Scotland, although any similarity is difficult to find. Many early pioneers are buried here, including Thomas Jefferson Brattain (1829-1909), who came to Oregon in 1851. Brattain moved to eastern Oregon in 1873 and served as Lake County’s first sheriff from 1876 to 1878.
