My 2nd great Grandma.

Tousley Family Bible says that the Rev. D. C. Osborne married Grandpa & Grandma, November 29th, 1865 at Akron, Ohio. Note: Even their marriage certificate has GERST & GARST both as maiden name.

They have eight known children:

1) Olive Florence (Nov 24, 1866-May 15, 1931); married Elbert Ellsworth Snyder, Sr.

2) Albert Joseph (Dec 5, 1867-Feb 13, 1868)

3) George Knox (Dec 2, 1868-Nov 13, 1964); married Viola Cole.

4) Carl Carelton (Aug 2, 1873-Jul 26, 1946); never married

5) Twin, Alice Calista (Nov 9, 1875-May 10, 1959); married Charles "Okey" Ragsdale. My great-grandparents.

6) Twin, Harriet Elizabeth (born & died Nov 9, 1875)

7) Lloyd Joseph (Nov 16, 1880, died unknown)

8) Roy G. (Feb 10, 1883-Jan 2, 1884)

Stone says Grandma lived for only 38 years.

Many thanks to Ray Davidson for stone photo and for finding correct cemetery and to Mary MacCracken for birth date; you both are gems!

Also, photo of Grandma Hattie taken just before her wedding provided by cousin Ramona. THANK YOU!
