Before me a Notary Public personally appeared before the above named Herman Sebitzky and made oath to the foregoing statement.
C H Hoseman Notary Public.
- William Townsend was buried on 15 November 1889 in Hamilton Township, Franklin County, Ohio.
- The undertaker was named Herma Sebtkzy and an address was given.
- I wonder the costs of the funeral, especially since William and Mary Townsend were so poor.
- The Cemetery is listed as the Luthren Cemetery in Hamilton Township. That cemetery has become known as the Obetz Cemetery in Obetz, Ohio. I wonder if this was all the same place and when the name was changed.
- Was William and Mary Townsend Lutheran if they were buried in the Lutheran Cemetery?
