Tombstone Tuesday - Timothy and Mary Ann (Matson) Creeden

My great-great-grandparents Timothy and Mary Ann (Matson) Creeden are buried here in St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery in Celina, Mercer County, OH.  Plot: Northeast Section, Row 13.

One facing says:
Dec 14, 1899
53Y 8M 19D

This places his date of birth at Mar. 26, 1846.

On the other side, it says:
Mary A.
1851 - 1925

My Dad grew up in Celina and this large monument was a surprise to him. The church says they do not have records of who purchased the monument or plot.
