Tombstone Tuesday-Adam Kable

This is the tombstone of Adam Kable, located in row 8 of St. Paul UCC Cemetery, Rockford, Mercer County, Ohio. The marker is inscribed:

Willshire Milling Company

Today, another very nice local picture postcard, a horse-drawn wagon from the Willshire Milling Co. and its driver.
