Tombstone Tuesday: Bloomfield Cemetery in South Bloomfield Twp., Morrow County - Surname Messinger and Gibbons

While at the Bloomfield Cemetery, I helped a cousin by taking pictures of some tombstones of the surname Messinger. These stones were in the front of the cemetery near the road.  These stones are part of a puzzle that several cousins were trying to figure out regarding a Mary Goss and Lemuel Gibbons.  Mary Goss is a sister to my Solomon Goss.  I refer you to my blog about this man by pointing to the panel on the right side of this blog for the link.  I have not yet launched into discussing Solomon's ancestors but soon after I finish the Kellers and Spracklins.

You can learn more at Find A Grave under the Bloomfield Cemetery under the name Gibbons.
