Maggie Willers
I did a little looking in a list that I have for obits that are in the local newspaper on micro film. In the list for some reason she is listed as Maggie Williers. If you want I can give you the info as to were to get the obit. I am not sure if they charge for them looking up the obit for you or not, but if you are not in any hurry I can add it to my list of obits that I want to look up and the next time I go I will get it and add it to the memorial. Let me know if you want to try to get it or if you want me to get it and add it to the memorial.

I am looking at the book that I got the info from it clearly reads date of birth as 1860 and death as 4/28/1925. I guess the only real way of clearing this one up is to request a photo of the grave marker and hope there is on.

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.

Betcher and Fitschen
Just joined Find A Grave today so don't know my way around yet but the first name I looked up was Betcher and saw many names I recognized. My grandfather was Louis J.H. Betcher from Red Wing, MN. His brother was Wilhem (William) Betcher. We visited my grandparents every summer all through the 1950's til early 60's. We always went out to the family home in Hay Creek to visit my mom's (Louise Betcher Waller) aunts --Aunt Lizzie and Aunt Emma. They lived there with my mom's cousin Harold and wife Barbara and 3 or 4 children. I had been in contact with Barbara several years ago but lost touch about 7 years ago. I probably still have cousins there in Red Wing but have never been in touch.

Just wanted to thank you for the information on Find a Grave.

RE: Norfolk Cemetery
The Zion Cemetery at Drake sometimes has the name Norfolk applied to it.

RE: Relative
The Nissens are also distantly related to me.
Not sure but I would bet the are also 3rd and 4th cousins.
