STEINMETZ, CAROLINE - Stark County, Ohio | CAROLINE STEINMETZ - Ohio Gravestone Photos

Caroline STEINMETZ

Melscheimer - Pike Twp. Cemetery
Stark County,
Ohio

This large granite gravestone is a Steinmetz family stone- for Hiram and his wife Caroline. The picture was taken with a SW view.

The east face of the large marker is engraved:
HIRAM STEINMETZ
1838-1907

The north face of the large marker is engraved:
CAROLINE
WIFE OF HIRAM STEINMETZ
BORN MAR. 5, 1838
DIED MAY 30, 1889

The small, older marker at the bottom right is engraved:
CAROLINE
BORN MAR 27, 1845
DIED MAY 30, 1889

The small gravestone indicates a controversy in birth dates. It also has her name, birth and death dates. It's birth date (Mar 27, 1845) differs from the "Mar 5, 1838" engraved in the larger stone. Current consensus of ancestry and rootsweb is for the latter.

These graves are located in the older section of the cemetery, in the second closest E-W strip running parallel to Melcheimer road.

GPS coordinates are 40d 43' 13.25" N, 81d 22' 24.9" W.
