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 #326.

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.


If you have already received this message, please accept our apologies for the duplicate message.

thanks for letting me know that I've duplicated my aunt's memorial. I deleted the latest one. I see there is another, which has incorrect information on it, photos taken from my, and created after my first memorial done in 2008, #27793556. The one I'm referring to is no: 34652814, by D C McJohnathan-Swarm, the same person I've had many problems with over the years on this website. I prefer that his be deleted also as he does not have the right information.

I just tried to delete the transferred memorial that was created by D C McJohnathan-Swarm, and I cannot do it without requesting from F.A.G. which I've just done. I will be unhappy if they tell me I must delete my memorial to my grandmother since I created it before McJohnathan did one, from which he took info off my ancestry page to do his.

Yes, I'm aware of the two memorials. I've been working on cleaning one up, #34543882, created by someone distantly related who had lots of misinformation. It's taken me about 2 yrs for him to transfer management to me so I can straighten my grandmother's memorial with correct facts. As you can tell, he created his memorial after I created mine and took much off and lifted photos off my ancestry page to put on F.A.G. which is strictly prohibited
I will get his off if I can, since he created it, and will add more to mine.

Thanks, Mary 47079221

Milmo L. Black
Hello, I received a message from you that said the Milmo L. Black, page memorial# 132345801 that was transferred to me recently to me by P. V. Hays is a duplicate. When I search for Milmo Black is the only one that shows up. Where is the duplicate?

I sent an edit to the other contributor asking them to remove their duplicate. Mine was created first.

You can tell which one is the duplicate by the memorial number (if they are created on the same day).

Thanks for the heads up.

Gerald Frank Johnson
Hi, Libby--I wrote the daughter listed in Mr. Johnson's obituary, and I printed out what his memorial looks like so she could see what I was talking about. I printed out all the government military paperwork that would help her apply for a military marker of her choice to be placed at her father's grave. I mailed the packet Tuesday---I included my email address and my phone number and asked if she thought my contacting her was inappropriate, to please contact me. Nothing yet--but, will keep you posted on what shakes out. After looking at your memorials, it appears this was not the Frank Johnson you were looking for...?

Gerald Frank Johnson's grave
Hi--I just read up on military markers and it looks like Mr. Johnson IS due for a marker, free of charge to his survivors. Did you know his family at all? In his obituary, it states he has a surviving daughter in IL. If you don't know her (or didn't know Gerald), I could write her and enclose a packet of info, in case there is nothing they've ordered to mark his grave. Let me know---thanx--Ann

RE: Gerald Johnson's marker
I'm retired---I have the time. I'll see what I can find out tomorrow. Do you know of any of his living relatives? Neither of us may be able to make a request for his marker on our own. LMK---Ann

RE: Gerald Johnson's marker
Hi---I was out taking cemetery pictures yesterday--still no stone marker for Gerald. If he is a relative of yours, since he served in the military, I would think he would qualify for a military plate for his grave. ??? I see many graves that have only the bronze military plate as their markers. Good luck--Ann

Mona is Paul's aunt and just wanted to be sure Paul was connected to his mom. All is good.

Thanks so much for all your help. I'm still learning Find-A-Grave. It is wonderful.

Thank you, looks like both were made the same day but mine was first by the number. I sent a request to delete duplicate. If he turns out to be family, I will delete mine or transfer to other manager to decide.

Thanks again.

Duplicate memorial
Mona Tomlinson created a duplicate memorial for Paul the day after I made one. Is she family and do I need to delete my memorial or should she be asked to delete hers?

I'm okay either way, I just want to be sure a memorial is there and avoid duplicates when possible.

Libby - Is Billy buried in Willow Cemetery in Haskell, or Rockdale Cemetery in Haskell Co.? His joint marker with his wife is in Rockdale. Let me know and I'll try to get it straight.

Billy Pitcock
Thanks for your note. So sorry about the death of Billy's daughter. I was going to delete Billy's memorial since you said it was a duplicate. I checked, and it's the only one I see. Maybe the other person deleted theirs?? You can let me know if I still need to delete mine. If you want these memorials transferred to you, just use the Edit function and ask for them, and I will be happy to transfer them.

The other is the Duplicate and she has been notified. You can tell whose is first by checking the Find A Grave Memorial Number at the bottom of the page, the numbers are assigned as they are posted.
