Portland Memorial Cemetery

Portland Memorial Gardens is a cemetery located on College Street (west of Portland High School) that was opened the late 1980's, after the Sumner County Cemetery Book was published.  I walked the cemetery in April, 2004.  Listings at the end of this record are from newspaper obits and some burial dates from Wilkinson and Wiseman director, Charles Wilkinson where no tombstones or plates were found.
