Help us find the owner of this gravemarker
A gravemarker was found in Portland Oregon with the following names inscribed:
Francis Day Manin
1909 – 1974
Susan Manin Smith
Teddy Templeton Jr.

Thomas would like help finding family so the gravemarker can be returned. If you want to help, leave your findings on Thomas' blog or here on Olive Tree Genealogy.

In 1930 James and Francis Manin were living in North Kelly Butte, Multnomah, Oregon with 2 children - Susan Manin age 6 and Margaret Manin age 4
