Tombstone Tuesday ~ Magdalena Saurer

This gravestone is a currently unconnected SAURER from Tracy Cemetery in Apple Creek, Ohio.  I believe the official name of the cemetery - if you try to locate it on Find-A-Grave or a map - is Red Run Cemetery, but if you want a local to direct you there - ask for Tracy Cemetery.

[This is my best guess at what it says - although I realize the calculation is off by a month if you use death date & age or birth date and age]

  2. I love to wander the older cemeteries and read the headstones. Seems the older stones used to have more sayings on them than most of the ones today.
