Anna Bardshar Skadden



















Anna Bardshar Skadden was the daughter of Solomon and Amelia Bardshar, born on Christmas Day in 1862. She died on February 25, 1935 in Port Clinton, Ohio. Her husband was Henry B. Skadden. These facts were gleaned from Anna's death certificate, freely available online at Family Search Labs.

A Google Map shows a point in Erie County, south of Miller Road, and west of State Route 4, where Skadden Road and Bardshar Road meet. Anna's tombstone shows the joining of two families as well as the meeting of two roads in Erie County, which were often named for the early landownders of the property adjacent to the roadways.

You make such a simple head stone so very interesting. Thanks -- you teach us to look beyond the stone to the people.

Thanks so much for your kind words!

I am always driving around Erie County, and when I saw that tombstone with Anna's maiden and married name, it just jumped out at me, that we had two roads with the exact same names!
