RE: George Washington Stone If he was under the North Street Bridge then he must have fallen in lock 14. The depth of water in those locks was only about 3-4 feet, but a lot of people did drown in them, including many adults. Usually at night with alcohol being involved. The remains of many of the locks are still there although they are dry or partially so. Are you in the Akron area?
George Washington Stone I went to the library today, and among other things, intended to get a copy of the article about George W. Stone's death. According to the index book, the article was in the April 25, 1881 issue, page 4, column 4. However, the paper was a weekly in those days, and there was an April 20 and April 27 issue, but none dated April 25. I looked thru the April 27 issue, but could find nothing; furthermore, page 4 was always devoted to international news. I also checked the first May issue, but found nothing there either. I have no idea where the indexer saw the entry. :(

RE: Florence Wain Dale, Florence's husband's grandmother (Margaret Ann Hall Wain Williams) and my great grandmother (Sarah Hall Hogan) were sisters. A while back you shared pictures and information with me on ancestry.com. I looked and do not know the plot they are buried in. I'll try and find out that information for you. Thank you so much for your offer to take a photo of their tombstone. It would be an added addition to my tree. MaryAnn
