Mrs. Louisa Dyar

This flat stone is found in Block 59 of Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. Mrs. Louisa Dyar (sometimes spelled Dyer) died on December 30, 1863, at the age of 63 years and 10 days.  She was the wife of Thomas Dyar/Dyer, who was the keeper of the Marblehead Lighthouse from 1861-1865. I am sure the Marblehead Lighthouse, which is the key feature at an Ohio State Park visited by thousands of tourists every year, was a very familiar sight to Louisa!
