'There is no known record of the earliest burials which are in the west row. There are some markers in this row, including a new one for Philip Eberhart. Philip lost his life August 28, 1885, while attempting to rescue his horse team during a flood on the Hackberry Creek. At the time of his death he was buried in the Wano Cemetery. It is believed he was buried in the Zion Evangelical Cemetery later, but there are no records to prove this.' From Cheyenne County History, Curtis Media Corporation [1987].

Philip had been born in Neudorf, Glückstal, Kherson, Russia--now Ukraine--to Frederick and Elizabeth [Guthmueller] Eberhardt. He married Katherine Reuther [1849-1910] on October 11, 1870, in Neudorf. Sometime in the 1870s the family immigrated, first to Fillmore County, Nebraska, and then to Cheyenne County after 1880. Katherine eventually moved back to Nebraska; she died in Sutton, Clay County, NE, although two of the older sons John and Philip continued in the area. His sister Christina Gienger is buried in this cemetery; he was brother-in-law to Jacob Friedrich Rath who lived in Cheyenne County and had married Philip's sister Anna Maria.
