Bio Photo A fire fighter by profession, genealogy and history research are one of my hobbies. I also enjoy Civil War reenacting with the 33d N.J. Inf.,2nd Zouaves, the feel of history never got better. As for the cemeteries, as quiet as they may seem, the souls of those before each have their own story.

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.

RE: Mem. 57812577 Oscar H. Statrk
I will do that. He was married to my husband's grandmother, Frances Maceina Stark. I have very little info on you have anything that you'd share with, info, etc? I don't know anything of her marriage to your grandfather, except records I've found.

How about your grandfather...anything you would share about him would be wonderful.

Dug Gap
Gary, I am very interested in your research on Dug Gap. I have set up a Virtual Cemetery to group together the men who were killed in that battle. I am searching for several graves of the men of the 154th NY, 134th NY, 29th Ohio, and other regiments. Any info greatly appreciated. Please email me.
Thank you.

George Brewster, consumption, & the 124th
Hello -

I happened to visit LadyGoshen's memeber page and read your message to her about Mr Brewster. My G3GF, Horace Paret, was also in the 124th and lived for a time in Slate Hill. I suspect he was born there or in Ridgebury. He, too, had TB (died 1880) as did his brother, wife, father-in-law, and at least two of his children that died had it. TB was as rampant in NY (probably throughout the colonies) at that time as it now is in Asia. Mr Brewster may have become infected well before he found himself in Maryland.

The intial infection can cause mild flu-like to no symptoms at all, then the bacteria becomes dormant in the body, oftentimes for decades (the latency phase). It's only when the bacteria becomes active that symptoms appear - cough, fever, fatique, etc. So, perhaps he entered the active phase of the disease while he was in Maryland with the stresses the soldiers were under, but he could have had it from his contact with all the infected NYers he knew as a child. It's a devastating and sneaky disease!

All the best, J
