Memorial transfer # 73628874 Mr. Wells, I would appreciate your consideration of transferring Marcellus M. Coleman's # 73628874 page to our family. Marcellus was my husband, Granvell Coleman, grandfather. I am Ronda Coleman, Granvell's wife.
Phillip Whiteley Hi Art, I recently took and posted a photo of this gentleman's marker to your memorial. Seems strange that his last name is not on the military marker. I assume he was a Union soldier during the Civil War. If so, then he is the only member of the Colored Infantry in Old City that I am aware of. Very unique marker.
Micajah Leftwich Hi Art, I see that there is a photo request from someone for this person's grave. Seeing how I spend a lot of time in Old City, I was going to try and find the grave to get a photo. Problem being that the Old City database does have him listed as being buried there, but the Diuguid burial records appear to show him buried in Presbyterian. What a conundrum. The database does not show a plot or section, so this should be quite the challenge. Challenge accepted...
Westlawn-Hillcrest Vets 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.
