Bloom Twp., Fairfield Co., Ohio
Thrash, Father & Mother, Levi Thrash, Feb. 22, 1843, aged 81y 7m 6d. Hannah E. Aug 15, 1912, aged 69y 3m 8d. The cemetery book shows nothing like what the stone actually says. First, I have no idea why they show the BIRTH date of Levi, and the DEATH date of Hannah, especially when they share the same stone. Is there another side to this stone? The book shows full dates as well as the age at death. If you work out the dates for Levi, it would mean he died Feb. 28, 1924, which can be backed up with his death certificate. I'm surprised the cemetery book would've included full dates, though, unless they thought it would avoid confusion.
