1903 Heppner Flood victims from a variety of flood victim's lists:

This list was compiled in consideration of many sources. It would be impossible to come up with an accurate listing of those who lost their lives on that fateful day. The journal that was originally kept as victims were brought into the Roberts building was never completed. The lists of victims that appeared in the newspapers, both local and across the country, had many errors. There were only two obituaries posted in the Heppner newspapers. A Memorial Service was held on October 15, 1903, for all the victims, but a listing of victims was not posted in these papers.  If you have additions or corrections to this list, please contact Tami Sneddon .

The chart below lists names that have appeared on a variety of lists. The columns represent the different lists.

Heppner Cemetery headstone location: The flood victims are all located on the north end of the cemetery, the oldest part of the cemetery. When you drive through the gate the area on the right is section "A"; On the left is "B" (or the middle section) and, as you exit the cemetery the area on the right is section "C". These are my personal designations, not the cemetery's. The cemetery uses lot and plot, but because there are no physical markings at the cemetery itself, I thought this system would be easier for location of headstones for those unfamiliar with the cemetery.
