Winslow Graves, Mt. Hope Cemetery, Beaver City, Nebraska

Warren Winslow sent an e-mail to some Winslow cousins earlier this week:  “I made a last minute trip to southwest Nebraska and northwest Kansas over the weekend.  I went to Beaver City, Nebraska and talked to the town librarian who put me in touch with Linda Weaver (Thomlinson).  The Weavers are descendants of Richard R. Weaver and Evelyn C. Carr, Robert H. Carr and Elsie L. Winslow, Orin E. Winslow and Martha E. Moreland, and Elias H. Winslow and Sally Folsom. Linda’s brother Richard owners the land Elias Howard Winslow homesteaded in the 1870s.

“I took pictures at the Mount Hope Cemetery.  The grave marker for Elias Howard Winslow and Sarah “Sally” Folsom is an obelisk made of white limestone that measures 14 X 14 inches at the bottom and stands 60 inches high.  The north side marks Elias Howard Winslow’s grave and reads E. H. WINSLOW DIED May 15, 1882 AGED 57 Yrs. 6 Ms. 16 Days.  The south side marks Sarah “Sally” Folsom’s grave and reads SALLY WIFE of E. H. Winslow DIED July 26, 1882 AGED 55 Years. The west side has clasped hands graved into the stone and reads Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord. The east side is blank.”

All of the following are also in the Mount Hope Cemetery and the pictures are shared at

Orin E. Winslow and Martha E. Moreland and their children Bernice May Winslow, Archie Lee Winslow, Viola Fern Winslow, as well as Elias and Sally’s children Lillian S. Winslow (Wade) and her child Bertie Wade both died soon after the child was born; Delbert S. Winslow and his wife Laura May Volgamore, Bertha May Winslow (Norton) and her husband Orin Hardin Norton.
