Tombstone Tuesday - Timothy and Mary Ann Matson Creeden

This is the grave of my great-great-grandparents, Timothy and Mary Ann Matson Creeden in St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery in Celina, OH. The grave is in the Northeast Section, Row 13 of the cemetery. Timothy was born in 1846 in County Cork, Ireland and Mary was born in Clinton County, OH. The inscriptions read:

Dec 14, 1899
53Y 8M 19D
Mary A.
1851 - 1925

We were quite surprised to find such a large monument for them. From probate records, it appears that Mary purchased the lot and monument after Timothy's death. This picture was taken by the Mercer County Genealogy Society. More pictures are at: Find a Grave
