    • Sandusky Cemetery
    • The monument in place at Lewis and Ary's grave sites is not the original marker. Lewis's original marker was so weathered that the inscription was illegible. Ary was not on the original monument. Thus, in 2008, we placed a new stone. The original stone was buried on the grave site.

    We think the children may be in order, with John sitting next to Ary, and then in the back row, from left to right: Francis Marian, Charles, James Lewis, Nancy, Leander, and Andrew. We presume the man in the portrait is either Lewis or son Frank.
