Tombstone Tuesday ~ Frank P. Kesling

For today's Tombstone Tuesday, I am sharing the final resting place of Frank P. Kesling, my husband's 1st cousin, 4 times removed.

Frank Kesling, was born to John and Elizabeth Garrett Kesling on 25 December, 1852 in Clearcreek Township, Warren County, Ohio.  His great grandfather was Diderich "Teter" Kesling, German immigrant and veteran of the Revolutionary War.  I have shared information about Teter Kesling in previous blog posts.

According to census records, Frank became a farmer and remained a single man his entire life. He died of pneumonia at the age of 70 years, 11 months, and 2 days. Although his death certificate states that his date of death was 6 March, 1923, his headstone is inscribed "1922". He was laid to rest on 9 March, 1923 at the Springboro Cemetery in Springboro, Warren County, Ohio.
