Journey to the Past: Green Lawn Cemetery Section 75

Thankfully the streak of no stones was apparently at an end. However, the heat of the day was making me want to wrap up quickly, without doing too many additional volunteer photos.

Section 75 was next to section 82. I had visited section 82 the day before and found my Great Grandpa George Geiszler's plot. Section 75 had another Geiszler connection.

Caroline Mack GEISZLER BILLMANN's grand daughter (through her second husband) Emma Stone's in-law were buried in section 84. Caroline's daughter from her first marriage, to Joseph Gei├čler, resulted in three living children, one of which was Mary Elizabeth Geiszler GRENER

Mary Elizabeth's marriage to Conrad GRENER Sr, resulted in eight children. One of these children was Fredericka “Freda” Grener (1890 - 1980) who married Harry E BARNES (1888 - 1924). So essentially, I was looking for Caroline's granddaughter from her first marriage after visiting her granddaughter's in-laws from her second marriage in adjacent sections of the cemetery. Okay, I KNOW this is a tangled tree, but it's just so fascinating!

Additionally, I found it interesting that first cousins Freda Barnes and George Joseph Geiszler (from the first day's visit) were buried so close together in the cemetery.

 Anyway, I quickly found the Freda's stone. My stamina was winding down as the water was running out so I snapped 14 photos and moved on. Grand total 311 useable photos.

This is another installment in a lengthy multi-series post about the fantastic research trip I took to Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio. If you're just joining the this series, you'll be able to see every post under the label Research Trip.
