Charles Kountze

The Davis and Kountze families are very closely interconnected. They have the prime spot in Forest Lawn, Section 22, the "upper circle" location. The families started First National Bank here in Omaha, which their descendants still own today. It's one of the last family-owned banks in our area.


There are several branches of the Kountze family buried here; this is the Charles T. Kountze family.
