Stones of Titler: Schmolling, Smolling, Shelley & Swezey

There are stones for the surname Schmolling and Smolling in Titler.  I do not know if it is a different spelling for the same family members or two separate families; however, could C.H. & J.M be the parents of the infant that died?  The last stone is only a base with a piece laying behind it and I do not have a photo for that piece.  You will need to consult the Titler cemetery publications mentioned in a past post to see if you can figure this out!
Infant son of C.H. & J.M.  d 28 Jan 1899

Charles H. 1873-1933
Jennie 1876-1965

Schmolling base but no details.
Next are two stones for the surname of Shelley:

Sarah Ann Shelley wife of Jos. d 1 Jun 1893 age 80y6m16d

Joseph Shelley d 8 Jun 1888 age 85y9m18d
The surname of Swezey has a giant obelisk type stone:

I believe this stone has sides with inscriptions as follows:

Thankful wife of Thomas H. Swezey died Mar 25, 1878 age 57y10m18d

Thomas H. Swezey husband of Thankful...Died Mar 17, 1878 age 63yr 10m18d
The last picture may be a separate stone because I don't see the column at the top?
