Please know that I confirmed the location of their grave sites with the original cemetery recordz, and that their graves are unmarked. I have posted a picture, though, of the location. They are buried in Block 6 Lot 20 between an Ida Lawrence and Carl Wimer. Block 6 is a set of concentric circles. The graves are in the SE quadrant of the block, in the second circle from the center.

RE: Ruby Inez
Hi Jan,
I went back to the office at Hillcrest Memorial Park and touched based with the person who usually helps me. She actually pulled Ruby's file and confirmed that that there was no marker. The file stated, "Welfare - $140." So they only paid for the burial. I'm going to upload another photo that shows the markers on either side of her grave. The names are, Evelyn M. Gehrig on the left, and Benjamin F Gallentine on the right.
I hope this answers your questins. :)

RE: Ruby Inez
Hi Jan,
I did not capture the graves on either side, but will pop back over there soon and take a look. It's very close to my home. I think I will also double check with the office to make sure I was in the right spot...just to make sure. The person who helped me was not the usual person.

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.

Hi jan,

Just followed Augusta's link to her dad in Strawberry Point, Iowa One of my favorite places!! I am an Iowan by birth. Glad to know Augusta has been finally placed in her peaceful spot in Minnesota. Thanks for your message! If you have other information to share, I have sent you a link to my e-mail. We will keep a record at the Genealogical Society so we have a record of her for others to find.

RE: James Henry Nation
Hi Jan,

I got the info from the online cemetery transcript. Do you want me to transfer the family over to you? I'm not related to them, so would be happy to transfer. Let me know at your convenience. Have a good day!

Wilda Champion
Hi, Jan!
It was brought to my attention that we had both created pages for Wilda. Although mine was the original, and I typically do not delete originals...I see she is a relative of yours so just wanted to let you know I deleted mine so she only has one page. Have a nice day! 😃
