Do you ever come across a stone and wonder, is this the missing person I've been looking for? Well, I was taking pictures in Green Lawn Cemetery and I came across Samuel Ross (1817-1904) and I had this thought.

I have a Samuel J Ross who married Anna Margaretha Hoppe in 1889 (Franklin County, Ohio). I do not know the birth date or place for Samuel. Anna (also known as Annie) was born in Columbus 22 Jan 1869  and died 11 Jul 1896.

But that's all I know. So when I passed this stone, in the same cemetery where Anna was buried, I just wondered, "Could this be him?"

Probably not. Samuel Ross is a fairly common name. Without any further information to go off about my Samuel Ross, this stone is just an interesting stone with a similar name.


  1. Nice little mystery. I often come across stones with family names on and wonder if they are part of our tree.
