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.
