Many Koepkes buried in Blue Hill Nebrask

I just got back from a "grave hopping" trip to south central Nebraska in order to research my husband's Koepke line. I discovered several Koepke graves in the catholic cemetery east of Blue Hill Nebraska.I found the graves of Julius Edward Koepke b. May 28, 1844 in Willsnack Brandenberg Prussia married May 15, 1871 (Interesting this is the same year that other queries in this forum refer to) d. Jan 2, 1916 in Blue Hill.Buried with him was his wife Meta Margaret Danneman Koepke b. Jan. 22 1851 in Hanover Germany. d. Feb 5, 1932 in Blue Hill Nebraska. Julius and Metta had a daughter who was born in Chicago in 1877, so they must have lived there prior to going to Blue Hill. There is also an Earl Koepke
buried in the Trinity Lutheren cemetery north of Blue hill. I found some interesting information about this predominantly german community in a book at the Adams county Historical Society in Hastings Nebraska.
If anyone is interested I'll share what I found. Christine
