For a photograph of Ethel Sherman Harmon and husband Fred see Fred Harmon #39993584 Westminster Memorial Park, Orange County, CA.
From Harrison B. Talbert's diary:
1911 May 20 Fred Harmon marries.
1912 February 4 - 1/2 past 10 O'clock Freds wife peacefully passes away. (It had not been peaceful before. See Tacy Harmon, Greenwood Cemetery, Adams Co. Nebraska for more details.)
Newspaper article - Ethel B. Sherman Harmon, age 21, buried south of Hastings at Blue Valley Cemetery, Leroy Cemetery.
1912 Feb. 19, Hastings Daily Tribune, page 5.
Mrs. Fred Harmon was born July 17, 1891, at Pauline, Nebraska, and passed away February 4, 1912, at Trumbull, Nebraska at the age of 31 (21) years, 6 months and 23 days, after an illness of two weeks. All that loving hands could do was done and these can confidently look to God knowing that his will is supreme. Especially is the husband to be commended, for his faithful, untiring vigilance. Husband and infant son and father, mother, four sisters and two brothers are left to mourn her. May these with the devoted husband and father realize that through faith is God and his precious blood there is yet the best to follow in that land where times never cease, where we shall never say good-by.

We cannot understand it,
Shall we try to do it? No,
We'll leave it all with Jesus,
And on to glory go.

This sorrow must not o'erwhelm us,
Instead the waves we'll Tide:
We'll try and live more like him,
And nearer his bleeding side:
So that when our work is done on earth,
We'll rejoice together on high.

Card of Thanks.
We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to the kind friends and neighbors who helped during the sickness and death of our beloved wife and daughter. Mr. Fred Harmon (husband), Mr. and Mrs. Ben Sherman (parents) and family, Mr. and Mrs. Levi Sherman.


Fred and Ethel were married nine months and she died. She had a baby boy. At this cemetery are buried three Harmons - Ethel and two Harmon children. Since Fred and Ethel were only married nine months and two Harmon children are buried elsewhere in the cemetery, not with Ethel, I doubt these Harmon children are hers.
2012 From Daveta Brader Sexton of Blue Valley cemetery
The Harmon children that are there were buried in the late 1800's. There is no info as to whom they would belong to. No names were in the big book. Usually they are next to a parent or grandparent, but not this time. There is also an infant that has no name, and they are all three in lot 81. Good records weren't kept until 1920. Someone did have the foresight to walk the cemetery and write down names and dates from the early wooden markers. That is all of the info on most of the early burials.
