I Live round ten minutes from Chapel Hill. I have photographed the whole cemetery and am in the process of indexing what I have done. The only Sund I have is Ada Mae. Could Ruth have remarried? I will do some digging and let you know what I find. If you contact the cemetery, DO Not mention findagrave. They will not deal with us. I have plots there and many family there but they will not help me because I am a volunteer for findagrave.

Dora Watts
And for Dora, too. I have not counted, but am tempted to count how many family graves we have in Davenport, but between the Whites, the Ebbekas, the Watts, and three for the Riles, there are at least two dozen. Thank you for looking after them. Elizabeth

Joyce Ortman
It looks like you may have known Joyce Ortman. I am a distant relative from Illinois. My mother was one of the Willmore's. Do you have any idea where Joyce's sister Barbara Nickle died and is buried. I have all of the Willmore memorials at Rosehill Cemetery and I cannot find this woman. I would like to link her to the rest of the family.

You're welcome. I am not related either, just researching in the area and passed it on. I hope family will gain some knowledge from the article. Sad story though. Thanks for posting it. I am happy to have added to her memory.

We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge #326.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

I would like to have a copy of Catherine Olinger Garey's obituary. Do you have one or know how I might be able to get one?
I would certainly appreciate any help you may give and reimburse any expense involved.
Thank you,

Mary Britton
Wife of F. D. Lichty
Do you have any information of Dora Watts Lichty being buried in the Davenport Cemetery with her husband Filmore D. Lichty? Dora was born 4 Aug 1869 in Whitestown, Boone, Indiana and died 6 Feb 1922 in Omaha, Douglas County, Nebraska. She was the daughter of Daniel Hardin and Surrilda Roberts Watts and the sister of Cora Watts Ebbeka. I believe she was the mother of the infant Cora Lichty who was born and died in 1890. Could she be an unmarked grave on the lot with Daniel and Surrilda Watts? I know there is at least one and probably two, but I do not know who they are.
The following is her obituary:

Dora, daughter of Daniel Watts and wife was born at Whitestown, Indiana, Aug. 4 1869, from which place she moved with her parents in 1884, [The Daniel Watts family is in Nebraska in 1880 census, Richardson County] when she was fifteen years old, to Davenport, Nebraska, where she lived until she was married to Fillmore Lichty of Waterloo, Iowa, on Dec. 25, 1887.
Mrs. Lichty died at her home in South Omaha, Nebr., where she had lived for the past 21 years. She died Feb. 6, 1922 at the age of 52 years, 6 months and 2 days.
Mrs. Lichty united with the Christian church at Hebron several years ago, and tho she moved her membership from there, she continued a member of the church until she died.
She leaves to mourn her loss, her husband, one daughter, Mrs. Belle Heckman and one son, Floyd Lichty all of Omaha, Nebr., also four brothers, Charles Watts of Pomona, Kans., Sample Watts of Falls City, Nebr., W. H. Watts of Hebron, Nebr., and Squire Watts of Davenport, Nebr., besides many other relatives and friends.
The body was brought to Davenport for burial, and the funeral held Friday, Feb. 10, at the Church of Christ, conducted by B. Frank Lowery, and the body laid to rest in the family lot in the Davenport cemetery.

Thanks for any help you can give. Thank you also for all the work you have done on the Davenport Cemetery and those in surrounding towns. It has been a great help to me and I am sure others who were looking to find more information on their families.

I've deleted and then resent pictures for Albert & Lenora Pohlmeier. Hopefully, I did it correctly this time. I'll work on the others tomorrow. Let me know if there are any problems yet with the way I've corrected these 2 pictures.

Louisa Phillippi Berkey memorial duplicate
Sorry for any imposition. This was my G Grandmother's (Sarah Phillippi VanSickle) sister. I've found a great deal of information on Louisa Phillippi. I find her very interesting. Thank you for anything you've contributed online :)
I have deleted the duplicate memorial.
