Tombstone Tuesday: Lee Cemetery, Hardin Co., Ohio - Alfred Spracklen....

Peter and Betty Spracklen's tombstone is next to their son the Rev. Alfred Spracklen. I have not posted on the Solomon Goss blog about this man but I will for he was quite active in the Hardin County and other counties northwestern Ohio.  Alfred is buried in the Lee Cemetery close to his other relatives.  Peter and Betty had 9 children.  Alfred is a younger brother to John Andrews Spracklen, my 3rd great grandfather.

Rev. Alfred Spracklen died Jan. 22, 1878 aged
67 Yrs, 2 Mos. and 10 Ds.

A little bit closer to Rev. Alfred Spracklen's info
On the other side of the stone is the information for Abigail, his wife.

Abigail, wife of Rev. A. Spracklen died Oct. 7, 1879
aged 68 Yrs 4 Mos. 1 D.

Closer to Abigail's information
Unfortunately the top round finial was broken off and laying on the ground next to this large stone.  The stone is in good condition except for that one problem.  You can see it is missing in the 2nd photo below.

Here I am standing next to both in 2011.  It was a lovely gorgeous day in Hardin County, Ohio:
