Tombstone Tuesday: Sarah J. Stockton

Sarah Jane Winner Stockton was my great-great grandmother and is buried in Bloomrose Cemetery in Sterling Township, Brown County, Ohio.

The visible side of the headstone is engraved:

Sarah J. Stockton
Aug. 24. 1849
Feb. 20, 1915

A pretty impressive headstone if you ask me! More about Sarah another day but for now, enjoy this picture taken by my aunt and uncle when they visited long lost relatives in Ohio. Oh yeah, and, that is another story you'll just have to keep reading to learn!

Here's her connection to our family. Sarah was the mother of Owen Delos Stockton, who was the father of Lena May Stockton (Abbate) my grandmother. And we thought that Lena May was an only child.....
