Journey to the Past: Green Lawn Cemetery Section 47

After the disappointments of finding no stones, I was hoping to continue the roll that started in section 112. Section 47 was well laid out and the map was easy to understand.

In section 47, I found Spencer Columbus RANCK (1877-1961) . He is the son of my great-great aunt Elizabeth Jane Brown RANCK (1850-1900). I've liked that name Spencer Columbus and his father's Jefferson Babcock. They are names that stand out and when I come across them, I know they are my family members. In any case, Spencer and his wife Marie A SHIMPF's stones were easy to find. I snapped 9 photos and moved on. Grand total of 290 useable.
