Fried Egger

I’m perhaps two-thirds through doing an inventory of interesting markers at Lone Fir Cemetery, the major pioneer cemetery here in Portland. Yesterday unearthed these two gems. The carving of the drowning man is easily the second most famous carving in the cemetery after the relief carvings of the Stephens. It’s pretty well known.

Fried Egger, on the other hand, was new to me. Hear tell his brother was a poacher.

Thanks for the detailed info on Forest Lawn! I should look for some pictures to share with you. What can I say about the Fried Egger and your poacher comment? I can't, it's too good!
