RE: Forest Lawn Database
It's our pleasure to help out.

I wish Forest Lawn would put that database back up but it sounds like they are starting to charge for numerous look up requests. Bummer.

Whenever you need something just let me know.

Are you sure he's buried in Forest Lawn? His obituary says he's in Holy Sepulchre in Gretna.

John Kastman #130424411

Thank you for the Kastman info. I have added it with kudos to you for the updates.

I left John with Sweden as his birth country due to the fact his younger brother Charles/Carl lived for many years in Omaha and through each census declared his birth country as Sweden and his native language as Swedish. I figured that the four year age gap (with a sister born in between in Sweden) would make it unlikely that John was born in the US.

What little family tree information I could find for the Kastman Family had Charlotte passing away in 1922. She was back in Minneapolis as late as 1919 living as a widow.

Charles/Carl and his wife Beda are buried in Westlawn Hillcrest in Omaha but I have yet to find Charlotte's grave.

There aren't many people with the surname Kastman documented on Find A Grave. Of course Charlotte might have remarried prior to her passing.

As with many of the memorials this one will be a work in progress.

John's obituary stated he was locked out of his printing job due to the "8 hour controversy". I wonder if that is connected to creating the 8 hour work day? I haven't heard of that in Omaha so I will put my learning cap on and and absorb some more Omaha history. =)

RE: Fredric Mowry
Thanks. You filled some spots where I didn't know where these people were buried. The logs for Fairview were lost in a fire in the 1920's. A Boy Scout project several years ago recorded all existing headstones.

Fredric Mowry

My name is David Young and I live in Council Bluffs, Iowa. I am researching the Mow(e)ry line.
I am tracking Garrett W Mowry who was Fred's brother.

Fred rests in an unmarked grave at Walnut Hill.

Garrett married Roseanne Lowry in 1888 and lived in and near Council Bluffs until 1907. This union produced seven children of which three survived. (Ethel, Roy, Carl). Garrett and Rose divorced somewhere between 1900 and 1910. Rose married a James Casey sometime between 1904 and 1905. She sued for divorce in 1917. She died in 1936 and is also buried at Walnut Hill. Her two sons (Carl & Roy) are buried next to her. Carl never married. Roy married Ruth Plum and had two sons (Daniel and Harvey). Harvey was KIA in Korea.

Garret married again in 1907 and moved to Des Moines. He died sometime between 1910 and 1920.

I can send you more details,if you like.

Thank You So Much
A huge thank you for the Frances Cecelia Wenninghoff Lorentzen edits and information.

She is a relative of my sister-in-law through my husband. We didn't have her in the family tree.

Wow this is really great.
