I started working on the 8th Iowa Cavalry Regiment from the Civil War,,,, it seemed so many Veterans were lost in time.

Waugh's Oak View
I went back to the cemetery and the side of William's stone has Elin (Alex), William N. and Abraham. Front says husband of Emma. So I truely think these 3 boys are brothers and sons of William & Emma.

ID Military in Westlawn-Hillcrest
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.
