In retirement I have been doing the mowing at the Henderson, NE Mennonite Brethren Cemetery and have done some work on updating the cemetery records. The west half of the cemetery was officially deeded to the church in 1894 but there are burials that predate that. However, early cemetery records were lost in the 1930's so there are burials that are not recorded on the current list. If anyone has a record of earlier burials please send me a message. You can find an alpha listing and a spreadsheet with a little more information on the Henderson MB church website. http://www.hendersonmbchurch.com/#/about-us/history
Currently, I am working on compiling a complete list of all World War I veterans who are buried in Hamilton County, Nebraska. I have a virtual cemetery of what I have so far. Any suggestions are welcome.
I am also currently going through the postings of burials at the Aurora NE Cemetery to find missing names. If I inadvertently duplicated a memorial let me know and I will delete. Hope to follow up with photos soon so I can complete birth and death dates. If you have edits send them to me or if you are a relative I will transfer so you can do the updates to your relative's memorial.
RE: Esther Johnson Thanks John for taking the time and effort to locate Esther's grave stone and in taking a wonderful photo. Boy you were fast as I had just posted the request. Also, for the additional photos of her immediate family. What a Find A Grave volunteer!
RE: John McCullough Hi John You do a super great job of photographing. And THANKS for all you do on Find A Grave. I do not believe that it is right stone. I am glad you did however call my attention to it. I had not finished the memorial out. Shame, shame on me. I have fired a note of to his daughter Amber and ask who the stone is that you posted. I am sure she will know as I think a lot of the family is right in that general area. Again, THANKS Wilma and Gary Luther
