  • Notes 
    • The 1910 census reports that Flora, 49 years old and a wife of 3 years, was living with her husband John on their farm in Washington County, OR. The census records that she was born in Canada; her father in Scotland; and her mother in Canada. 1910 U.S. Census, East Cedar Prct, Washington Cnty, OR (T 624, Roll 1291, stamped p. 135).

      But by 1920 Flora was a 59-yr old widow, living alone in Sherwood, OR. The census reports that in 1907 she immigrated to the U.S. and was naturalized. It reports also that she was "farmer" on her "own farm." 1920 U.S. Census, Sherwood Prct, Washington Cnty, OR (T 625, Roll 1505, stamped p. 208).

      Flora's Oregon Death Certificate (# 80; 11 Apr 1935) contains information provided by her brother-in-law Archie Campbell. It notes that her full name was "Flora McDougall Campbell," that she was born in Ontario, Canada, and that she died 9 Apr 1935, at the age of 74 years, 10 months. It states that she was a widow and "retired at home." The name of her father was not known. Her mother was listed as "Jannett Carmichael," born in Scotland.

      Portland Memorial Mausoleum Record #14323 documents that Flora's remains are secured in the mausoleum's vault, the "Tower," which is not open for public access.
