Surnames: Killian, Lynn
I have relatives who are buried in Sioux City, Woodbury County, IA. I was wondering if you could help me out on locations. Henry Killian no date. Martha Killian Lynn no date. Warren Eldoren Killian died Nov 6 1926. Alberta Killian died June 2, 1955. Erwin Warren (Tobe) Killian died Aug 23, 1924. Lewis Killian no date. Charles Killian no date.
Thank you so very much if you could help me. I am not sure which of the cemeteries they buried in. Thank you Deb Fisher

Surnames: Killion, Killian, Killiam
The Graceland Cemetery Directory lists only these Killians: Richard Killian, Grace section, Lot 80, 28 Jul 1921;
Twins - 6 mos. old of James Killian, Grace section, Lot 80, 13 Mar 1922;
Winefred Grace Killian, Grace section, Lot 80, 29 Jan 1943
Edward Killion (spelled "Killion" in directory), Grace section, Lot 80, 25 Jan 1950.

There are several Killiam (with a "m") listings but the names don't match those listed in your post. Killiam names: Arthur S. Killiam, Clinton DeWitt Killiam, Dorothy Killiam, Jesse E. Killiam, Mary H. Killiam, William H. Killiam.

You might want to post a query to the Woodbury County, Iowa, Rootsweb list. I know that some of the subscribers to that list have directories for the other city-owned cemeteries in Sioux City.

You might also want to contact the privately-owned Memorial Park Cemetery in Sioux City (712-276-5043). I don't know of any directories for that cemetery.

Good luck in your search.

Is there an Ellen Johnson or a John Johnson in your book? I don't know where they are buired but I do know Ellen died in Sioux City in 1917. She was born June 28, 1860. Thanks.

There are tons of John Johnson listings. I have an Ellen and John that are buried together, but the date doesn't really match what you list as a death date for Ellen:

Ellen M. Johnson, Plot Grace 136, interred 19 Apr 1949
John M. Johnson, Plot Grace 136, interred 7 Mar 1945

Thank you for answering. I don't believe the Ellen & John that you found are the great grandparents that I am looking for but I won't rule them out. Thank you again.

The only DeWalts I show at Graceland are:

Marian DeWalt, Section/Plot Hilldale 40, interred 1/2/1911
Norma DeWalt, Section/Plot Hilldale 40, interred 1/7/1949

You might want to post a query on the Woodbury County Rootsweb boards to see if you can find him in one of the other Sioux City cemeteries. I only have the Graceland directory; other people on the Woodbury County list have directories for the other city-owned cemeteries. There is also a private cemetery, Memorial Park. Their phone number is 712-276-5043.

Good luck in your search.

Paula, Thanks for the quick reply. The two DeWalts that you had listed were the two wives of my grandfather, John DeWalt. At least I now know where they are interred. It's a little strange that my grandfather does't appear, for my father had written that he was in Graceland. Maybe they ran out of room! Anyway, thanks for your efforts - I'll keep on looking. John.

A-ha!! Found him! His name was misspelled in the directory.

He was listed as John E. DeValt. Hilldale 40, interred 5/22/1959.

Hope this helps!
