I found the graves you asked of in the College View Cemetary, here in Lincoln. College View used to be a small township east of Lincoln, but as Lincoln grew, it swallowed up the township. The cemetary is located at the corner of 70th st. and Pioneers Blvd. I have been trascribing tombstones in this graveyard for about 6 months now, off and on, and am about 75% done, with 709 souls counted so far.
As far as the history of the cemetary, it is affiliated with the College View Seventh Day Adventist Church, located about 3 miles from the cemetary. However, not all souls buried there were Seventh Day Adventists. This church may have more information for you if needed, since there isn't much info on the graves. Their address is:
College View Seventh-Day Adventist Church
4015 S. 49th
Lincoln, NE 68506
I have heard that they are quite helpful to folks looking for information on ancestors.
Here is what is on the tombstone (one stone, with 2 names on it):
Conrad C. Reiswig 1853 - 1931
Eliz R. Reiswig 1852 - 1932
Sorry so little info, but there it is. BTW, I am not a relation; I am merely transcribing for historical purposes.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, by clicking on my name at the top of this email, you will be taken to another screen that has my email address and a listing of what boards I have posted on.
Hope this all helps, and let me know if you have any further questions.
