In retirement I have been doing the mowing at the Henderson, NE Mennonite Brethren Cemetery and have done some work on updating and correcting 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. |

When I requested photo for gravemarkers for my grandparents, I didn't realize that there were two memorials set up for each of them. Are you the one that repaired this? If so, thank you very much, as I always wondered why they would have been buried in the Albion, NE Cemetery--which of course, they weren't, but were buried in Aurora. Now we seem to have it in order.

I have just received an obit from the World Harold Newspaper for Wilbur W. Gustafson confirming that he was to be buried at West Lawn Cemetery in Omaha. However, I did email West Lawn-Hillcrest a couple weeks ago and was told Emil nor Wilbur was there. What do you make of that? From the looks of the distance from Aurora and Omaha I'd say it's out of your area.

Walter Wilbur Gustafson, Birth 1918 in Omaha, Douglas, Nebraska, USA. Death 10 Jan 1937 in La Crosse, La Crosse, Wisconsin, United States. Found this online in Omaha Obits and surrounding areas.->[GUSTAFSON, Wilbur W.; 19 s/Mrs. Frank Smith; 10 Jan 1937 WH morn p 20 @ West Lawn
GUSTAFSON, Wilbur; 19 Jan 1937 Omaha Bee p 7 @ West Lawn] After Wilbur's father, Harry Emil Gustafson, died, Wilbur's mother remarried to Frank Smith. They moved to La Crosse WI and then to Portage, Columbia, WI. It is in Portage where Frank and Lucinda Gustafson Smith are buried. My grandpa Harry, Wilbur's brother, moved straight to Portage from Nebraska and is buried there as well. I have contacted WestLawn Cemetery and they have neither Harry Emil nor Wilbur Gustafson there but per the obit segment, I have every reason to believe his body was sent back to NE and I assume he will be found in the same cemetery as his father. He is not buried in Portage WI. I'm very familiar with the aera and recently visited his mother's grave just to make sure Wilber wasn't there. His first name could be Walter. His neices and nephews have zero info to share. I've never heard my grandparents speak of their families.
AS for Wilbur's father, Harry Emil Gustafson,
Birth:11 Oct 1889 in Nebraska,Death: 21 May 1922in Omaha Nebraska. Married Lucinda Williams. According to the U.S. City Directories, Omaha Nebraska 1821-1989 In(1923) it states that he died 21 May 1922 at age 32 and Lucinda was a widow that year. His parents were Emil Gustafson (1869 – 1951 and is buried in Stromberg Cemeter in Stromsburg, Polk County, Nebraska)and Hedvig Petersen (1869 – 1920 and is buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Omaha NE). Other than siblings which lived in Aurora NE that is pretty much what I've learned of these to family members.
Thank you for offering to look around that cemetery. Not sure where to turn. I may buy that obit of Wilbur Gustafson's and hope there are the answers that I am seeking. I'm just too far away from NE to do a whole lot. I live just across the WI line and 100 miles from Portage WI.

Hi John, Well thay sure did burst my bubble. Those arent my family me mbers. I felt almost sure that I had truely finally found them. Aurora is the last residence for Harry Emil Gustafson. Thought if I found him thay I would find his son, Wilber Walter. Guess Im back to the drawing board. Thank for the prompt attention and reply back.
