Tombstone Tuesday

Mary C (Steidler) Sheaffer –(1837-1910)

Mary C Steidler Headstone

Mary was buried in Springhill Cemetery in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania in 1910. After several attempts to locate her headstone I was finally able to dig around and find that it was almost completely covered over. Her husband John E Sheaffer according to cemetery records is said to be buried next to her but unfortunately his headstone no longer exists. It’s a shame that they do not have better headstones as they were well respected parents, grandparents, community and church leaders.
