Mary (Firestone) CARLE Gravesite Located

In Reply to: FIRESTONE GENEALOGY COMPILED by George Ely Russell, C.G. of 252

Gravesite of Mary FIRESTONE b. 09 October 1789 located earlier this year with generous assistance of Kevin, my cousin.

Mary FIRESTONE m. 1807 Richard CARLE at Columbiana Co., OH and she dec'd 15 September 1869 at Paulding Co., OH, then apparently a resident of Columbiana Co., OH where her estate was finalized over the next many years.

Mary's gravesite was located in Defiance Co., OH. Mary is buried with two grandchildren and her dau. Harriet, as well as both spouses of one granddau. My cousin wrote, "I found Riverside Cemetery along SR 111 on the southwest side of town. I cruised through..but it was too big to hope to find any grave...by chance. I drove downtown [to the library]...and searched...[a] cemetery record listing. I went back to the cemetery and found the old section to the north ... separated from the newer section by a stream and ravine. It was shaded with a lot of old tall trees. I had trouble finding the graves at first ... got my
bearings straight..... I looked down
at my feet and saw the broken-off top of a headstone lying flat on the ground, and it read "Mary Carle Wife of Richard". There was a broken base nearby that I assumed to be the bottom of Mary's headstone. Those were the only visible markers in that cemetery lot. I got my camera and took some
pictures.... Thank you Kevin!
