RE: Charles Koch in Oakland
I have zero doubt that the stone is in Oakland; I only wish I could tell you where. Next time it is warm enough and I have some, I will follow up on some hunches.

Memorials in Oakland are created from the photos I took. I don't go to Calvary much - I have not been there in at least five or six years. As for Elmhurst, although I have been there a few times since I know folks buried there, I have rarely taken photos.

I also did a little research and found the Military Headstone Request from 1888 for his grave in Oakland. So I am guessing that at one time he had an old style headstone which looks like it has been replaced with a newer one.

I may have time over the next few days to contact them. With snow on the way, it sounds like tomorrow would be the only day to actually look out there.

Why Oakland doesn't list him is odd since that is where he is buried. Could be a fluke or a misspelling or who knows?? I will contact the person at Oakland whom I trust, and let them know what I found.

Charles Koch in Oakland
Hi Frank:

I was hoping that by looking at the photo I might get an idea of where that stone is, but unfortunately the photo did not help. That is interesting that they are saying he is not buried there. I create memorials from photos. When I get more time, I will look into that further - including asking them as a second person to see if I get a different answer.

Let me know if you learn anything else.

Milt Hanson
Hi Frank! Welcome to Find A Grave. I am related to some Hansons in the Canby area although I live in Texas. On a walk through the cemetery I took the photo of Milt's stone in case I could make a family connection. You definitely are more closely related so I transferred his memorial to you.
