Wordless Wednesday: White Zinc Monument at Strong's Ridge Cemetery in Lyme Township

Beautiful stone. You can certainly tell these souls were loved. Interesting names. The family name is Cloud, but only Mary's name is Cloud. Lester must be the father of Zelphia and Emily but their surname is Vandercook. A brother?

Thanks for stopping by Miss Merry! I have been so busy, I haven't
had time to research all the family ties yet. My heart skips a beat
when I find a white zinc monument!

Miss Merry,
I am pretty sure that Mary Jane Nims (born 1824) first married Lester Vandercook,
but Lester died in 1850. Then she married William Cloud, and she died in 1877, and was
buried next to her first husband Lester. Thanks to FamilySearch and the Ohio Obituary Index for providing the clues!
