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.

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.

re Nicholaus JohannPeterson
Hi Wanda—please add this info for he is my great great grandfather too!
I included your notes too.

Nicholaus Johann Peterson (yes, that is the original spelling of his first name)

Born 14 Nov 1840 Schleswig-Holstein, Germany
Died 30 Jan 1918 Logan, Harrison, Iowa, USA

Nicholaus Johann Peterson was the eldest child of Johann Christofer Petersen ( 1818-1862) (later spelling changed in USA from " en' to "on") and Catharina Louise MANGELSEN Petersen (1823-1885) and was born Winnemark, Karby Parish, Slesvig, Denmark (this part of Denmark would become part of Germany in 1870).

Nicolaus Peterson would meet Adelina Dorathea GREEN (Grehn/Gren), the daughter of Jürgen Gosch Grehn (1793-1849) and Dorathea Friederica GOLDSTEDT Grehn (1800-1882) also from the same area. Nicholaus and Adelina would be married 05 Oct 1862 in Schleswig-Holstein, Denmark (later Germany) on the family farm named "Bummelund".

Together they would have twelve children (10 lived past childhood).
Nicholaus and Adelina, along with their first three children, would come to the United States in June 1867 on a boat to New York (The Hammonia). They lived in a cave in Iowa until they built a log cabin on Green Hill Farm.

Nicholaus was a ships' carpenter by trade and later a farmer for the rest of his life. He is shown in front of his farm ( photo at right) with his children and their wives sometime after Adelina's death in 1903.

Wanda, who established this memorial , wrote in 2007:

"Our GGrandfather Born in Winnemark, Karby Parish, Slesvig, Denmark. Married Adeline Dorothea Green 1862 Slesvig, Denmark. Immigrated to USA June 1867 on the S.S. Hammonia, Hamburg-American Line steamship. "

Hi Wanda—please add this info as she is my great great grandmother too!

I included your notes with mine too.

Adelina Dorathea GREEN (Grehn/Gren) Peterson

Born 08 Apr 1841 Schleswig-Holstein, Germany
Died 24 Jan 1903 Logan, Harrison, Iowa, USA

Adelina Dorathea Green (Grehn/Gren) Peterson was born in Schleswig-Holstein, Denmark (later part of Germany in 1870) , as the eighth child of eleven children of Jürgen Gosch Grehn/Gren (1793-1849) and Dorathea Friederica GOLDSTEDT Grehn/Gren (1800-1882).

"Addie", as she was later called, met Nicholaus Johann Peterson who was the eldest child of Johann Christofer Petersen ( 1818-1862) (later spelling changed from "en" to "on" in USA) and Catharina Louise MANGELSEN Petersen (1823-1885) also from the same area. Addie and Nicholaus would be married 06 Oct 1862 in Schleswig-Holstein, Denmark (later Germany) on the family farm named "Bummelund". (see photo at right).

Together they would have twelve children (10 lived past childhood).
Nicholaus and Adelina, along with their first three children, would come to the United States in June 1867 on a boat to New York (The Hammonia). (See photo at right of the ship). Once they arrived in Iowa, they lived in a cave until they built a log cabin on Green Hill Farm.
