Note 1 from Sharon Hopper: The family of Marvin Wendt, which is the family of Johann/John Wendt, is buried in the Zion cemetery in Dension. He indicated that one of his aunts' children, Annie Flagmann is buried in the Wendt family plot site with no stone. The child belonged to Hans and Jessie (Wendt) Flagmann. He went to the funeral while a small child. His sister Ornella (Wendt) Malone also verified this.

Description: The Zion Lutheran Cemetery is located south of Denison, on the east side of the Oakland Cemetery, which in turn is located on the south side of the Crawford Heights Memory Garden. The three separate cemeteries might appear as one large L shaped cemetery.

The cemetery sits on a low ridge east of the main Denison cemetery and one will be hard pressed to find much level ground with the oldest section being what I have called the center section sitting on top of the ridge and running east and west. All of the sections where read from east to west so one may have some help in finding stones by beginning at the east edge of each section.

Directions: Take Main Street south from Hwy 30 and continue until the pavement ends and the road turns into South Main Loup. This is a gravel road and will travel past two other cemeteries which are connected and will be on the east side of the road. About 0.4 of a mile you will come to the south end of the second cemetery and there will be a county road sign and a paved road going to the east which is labeled P Ave. There is also a large hand painted sign with the name Zion Lutheran Cemetery and an arrow.
