upside down headstone photo
If you will click on the photo to see the larger view you can read the engraving which is rightside up. (Memorial nunmber 22853090)
I know it looks upside down - but I think that is caused by the repairs material on the stone.

RE: Weide questions
OK - My grandfather was Albert Weide, son of Charles H. Weide, and grandson of Gottfried H. Weide. (There were 2 Gottfried Weide's around - Gottfried H. and Gottfried C. -- my Gottfried H was the sponsor at Gottfried C's baptism, back in Germany). Albert Weide bought the property including the round red barn, about 1907-1909? I believe. And yes he WAS struck and killed by lightning in July 1924 while in a field on a wagon just north of the red barn, and according to my dad just across west of the highway. Apparently he went out with 2 of his kids, my uncle Boyd and my dad Chet, to cover up cut hay, because it was going to rain. My dad Chet was sitting next to him on the wagon, and he was struck too, but his injured arm and shoulder recovered in a few weeks ---- So, my grandfather was Albert Weide,and my grandmother was Emma (Opperman) Weide.
Irvin "Susie" was the first child, born in 1904, then Boyd 1907, my dad Chester 1909, Edna 1912, Alan "Bud" 1914, Wilma J. 1918, and lastly Doris (Gorden) 1922. -- Uncle Irvin was a little "slow", not really retarded, but slow to learn. Irvin never married, and stayed with his mom on the farm after all the other kids had grown up and moved away. They finally did give up the farm and move into town (Rutledge St?) about 1955? -- so yes, Irvin and Doris, and my dad were brothers and sister. -- My dad Chet,and my beloved uncle Alan "Bud" moved to Lindsborg, KS in 1947 and started up the Weide Brothers feed store, ice plant, and cold storage business. (My mother was a Swede from Lindsborg). -- my grandma Emma (Opperman) Weide was a sister to Fred Opperman in YC. -- Another man, "Buss" Harder also followed my dad and uncle to Lindsborg, Ks and ran a hardware store there for decades. --- as a kid I used to shoot "at" pigeons in the old red barn with my BB gun, and one time my dad and Gerry Gorden (Doris' husband) took their turn, with no better luck than I had! The wind vane on top of the barn was the object of target practice by my uncle Bud when he was still a young man on the farm. It went flying off and was never put back up. -- on the back of the property was an old railroad bed, the tracks long gone. My dad and I would fish in the creek just north of the property -- nothing great, but would occasionally get a sizeable catfish. -- the house had some limited plumbing (just drains) and no running water. There was a hand pump just outside the house, the only water source. Didn't even have electricity when I first remember visiting there, grandma had the "coal oil" kerosene lamps. She always cooked on her old wood stove, and I can still remember the smells of the kitchen area (mostly kerosene). The only heat was a pot bellied wood stove in the central area downstairs -- grandma would start it up with corn cobs soaked in "c.oal oil". --- grandma left Nordhausen, Germany when she was just 1 year old to come to the States. -- I know her hometown in Germany quite well now, having visited there numerous times while I worked in Germany (1978-1998). -- it's a good thing they left, later came 2 world wars, the near total destruction of the city by bombing in Apr 1945, and then the Communist regime for 50 years. I found living Weide relatives in/around Nordhausen in 1992, and still stay in close contact with them. -- all for now, der Richard Weide (pronounced vye-duh).

Brown graves
If you come across the stones of the Browns who died in the 1880s I could not read the dates on the stones, maybe another pic would help or maybe you can decipher them. Clarissa, Henman, Charles and Almary. I would be grateful for the help.
