As most of you know, Fred Astaire was born here in Omaha. His family had been here for some time, and Laurel Hill holds the graves of his grandparents and one of their children.

Geilus Monument


Wilhelmina Geilus, Fred Astaire's grandmother


David Geilus, Fred Astaire's grandfather


Alexander Geilus, whom I believe was a child of David and Wilhelmina. Someone has put a newer marker on his grave and retained the original marker.
