Last Soldier Sylvester E. Flummer
PRINT THIS INFORMATION
Private Sylvester Flummer (1845-1943) was the last living soldier of Pottawattamie County. He served in Company K, 118th Indiana Infantry Regiment. On April 28, 2018 a ceremony was held and a marker placed to honor Private Flummer. Shown are SUVCW members of the Kinsman Camp and from Nebraska participating in the ceremony. The plaque was mounted in concrete after the ceremony by the cemetery staff. To find the cemetery location - take Highway 6 to North Avenue - then turn south for one block - then follow E Pierce - go past the entrance to Walnut Hill - turn in the next entrance to the Cedar Lawn Cemetery. Thanks to Linda Linn for photos and information and to Dan Rittel for information. Also thanks to Deb and Mike Carr for the final photo taken 5/21/18 showing the marker after it had been mounted in concrete.
