Westgarthtown Lutheran Cemetery
Hanna Elisabeth Sophie Ewert (née Ihlenfeldt) (1802 – 1869)
Located within the Ewert plot is a small bluestone memorial. It marks the resting place of Mrs Hanna Elisabeth Sophie Ewert, who died on 9 September 1869 aged 67. This headstone is believed to have been sculpted by the Ewert family itself.
Maria Ewert (née Rosel) (c. 1839 – 1894)
Maria, the wife of farmer Carl Ewert of Wollert, died on 11 December 1894, aged 55, as a result of injuries received in a wagon accident. She and her husband were driving home along High Street, Northcote on 27 November 1894 when the pin came out of the shaft and caused the horses to swerve and to pass over a culvert, ride along a drain, then crash into another culvert, causing Maria's left hand to be crushed against a verandah post. Gangrene set in and she died soon after.
