From "Centennial History 1885-1985: Our Lady of Lourdes - Jordan, Oregon", 1985:

"In 1902, when the church was built on the top of the hill, a new cemetery was started near the church. The families that sponsored the building of the church used the new cemetery. Later families that moved into the parish continued this custom. The Jordan Catholic cemetery, as it is called today, has graves from the early 1900's with names such as Schneider, Rohwein, Salzl, Jungwirth, and Schmid. The clergy also chose to use the Jordan Catholic cemetery as there are graves of a Trappist Brother Ligouri, the Salvatorian priests Reverend E. Goerlich and Ludger Gloeggler, and Salvatorian Brother Martialis.

"Since Saint Bernard's parish in Scio and Saint Patrick's in Lyons do not have cemeteries, they sometimes use the Jordan Catholic cemetery."
