Irish genealogy has now released additional records so is well worth taking a look at.

These headstones are taken from the Hughes family cemetery, now named the Cape Blanco Pioneer Cemetery, located on Cape Blanco Road, at milepost '1', Port Orford, Oregon, United States. These were people who had worked on the Hughes ranch in the 1800's. There used to be many headstones, but there are only five remaining. I sent pictures about 7 years ago to Co. Cork website, historian, but I am sending the transcriptions only as I no longer have a digital camera. If I find the photos later on my main computer I will send them along. Here are the epitaphs, not all from County Cork, so I can send it along to other sites if you feel it necessary. Otherwise, you get them all. Suzi Miller
