RE: Peter Vos
That would increase the chance that they're resting at Hospers Cemetery. I will let you know what I learn. Please let me know if anything pops up on your end.

RE: Peter Vos
Boy. Then what to do is a very tough call. It almost demands someone to walk it to see if it's there or not. Memorial is at best a city block, and more realistically, a half a block.

I do have some missing family there, too, so I will keep yours in my mind when I'm able to call them. I noticed that there's a Hospers Cemetery Association, but I don't know if that's just for Hospers Cemetery or for all three of them. If I learn anything helpful, I will let you know. I wish I could walk the larger one, (Hospers Plain), but I don't think the weather will hold for me.

Hospers Memorial was Hospers Presbyterian Memorial. Do you know if your Vos's were Presbyterians, Christian Reformed, or Catholic?

I have been searching for Ellen and Lew Mick's memorial and find it fascinating I find it the same day you added it! Well done! Are you a descendant? I am descended from Ellen's sister, Catherine Stevens Replogle.

Oliver Plymate
I checked another source and it shows the Walnut Hill Burial Book is in error and the obituaries are listed as Oliver W., not Oliver E. I made the change on findagrave. Do you want me to transfer him?

Oliver Plymate obit
In the "Council Bluffs Nonpareil, Wednesday Evening, May 14, 1924, page 7", he was listed as O. W. Plymate who died in an auto accident in Memphis, Tenn. on May 9, 1924. It lists that he was survived by two sons, E. Plymate of Council Bluffs and B. L. Plymate of Portland, Ore.; and two brothers, J. E. Plymate of Williams, Ia., and William Plymate of Chariton, Ia.
The B. L. Plymate was hard to read and could have been R. L. Plymate.

You might want to note there is one more Plymate buried in Walnut Hill Cemetery. Walnut Hill and Memorial Park, where Mary is buried, belong to the same family and are located across the street from one another. With only two Plymate graves in this area, it is a safe bet they are closely related. The other one is Oliver E. Plymate who died in 1924; and it is probable he died young based on the location of his burial. The graves in that area are small - i.e. mostly all infants and small children. Is he possibly a son of Mary?

Edit completed. I do not know the family. If you do and would like to manage the memorial, I will transfer it to you.
