|Frank and Verna Schlared shared gravestone at |
Forest Lawn Cemetery in Columbus, Ohio.
This photo was taken by Brenda Mellett of Vernie E Sanborn and her husband Frank Schlared. I just learned about Vernie last year on my trip to Ohio. She is a niece of my great-grandmother Emma Townsend Brown. So, I was happy to place a request and see it fulfilled. I think Brenda was having trouble blocking the shadows on the stone. That doesn't matter as I am so grateful for the photo.

Photo by Tim Crane
Next, I received a message that Tim Crane went to Fernwood Cemetery and captured the gravestone for Emma C Ranck. Fernwood Cemetery is in Lockbourne, Franklin County Ohio. Emma Weimer is the wife of William Ranck, son of Charles Ranck and Elizabeth Holmes. Charles is the brother of a great grand uncle of mine... Jefferson Babcock Ranck. I know this is confusing. But, I want people to be remembered. And I often get lost on the collateral lines. Thanks for the help Tim.
While Tim was there, he also took photos of Emma's husband William and their daughter Thyrza. I can't thank people enough to gather more than just the specified stone. Take a photo of the whole lot, and then some. You never know what brick walls you can smash down by so doing.
