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.

McMillian connection
With both your family and my husband's living in Missouri, there has to be a connection. The furthest back I have gone with his McMillians is Robert Boone McMillian born in 1775 in Ireland and died in 1823 in Kentucky. He had 6 children. His child, James H., born 1812 in Kentucky, died in 1899 in Pulaski Co., MO and was buried in Crocker. He had 12 children. James' son, Jacob, was born in 1843 in Illinois and died in 1917 in Clinton, MO. He had 10 children. Jacob's son, Francis, was my husband's grandfather. He was born in 1890 in Walker, Henry Co., MO and died in 1950 in CA His son, Francis Leslie Jr., was born in 1919 in Clinton, MO and died in 2005. With all those McMillians there has to be some crossovers, I would think. Do any of these names look familiar to you, Rick?

Do you know what happened to the photo of the old Pleasant Ridge School that used to be located on the Pleasant Ridge Cemetery page?

Clemens, Luella "Ella" McMillian
As you know, Ella Clemens was married to Perry J. Clemens. Perry was shot and died in 1914. Our family history claims that Ella was "seeing" another man and Perry was shot by this man. I don't have proof just family hearsay.

In the 1920 census she is listed as a servant for the John Wyeth family in St. Joseph (treasurer of the Wyeth Hardware & Manufacturing Company).

Do you know when she married Willard B Lott (I think he lived in Atchison, KS)? Why would her grave stone show her last name as Clemens?

Mathew and Nollie Mayse
thank you for adding the grave stone for my Great Grandparent. All the Mayse's at that cemetery are related to me one way or the other. :)

Have a great day and God Bless,
Ann

RE: Looking For a James or Frank Moss
Do you know death dates for James and Frank? When I went to Hillcrest Cemetery I took pictures of all the tombstones and entered each one. I took those photos in 2009, so if their stone was placed late in 2009 or later, I would not have the photo.

Also, who were your wife's great-grandparents? There was a Farr and Moss Family that married in my line.

Rev. Cook's tombstone
Rick,
Thanks so much for taking the time to photograph Rev. Cook's tombstone in the Lebanon Cemetery. I know it takes time and effort to take this photo. I really appreciate it. Lillian
