This log cabin tombstone is located in Roberts Cemetery, Oregon Road, in Mercer County, Ohio, just a few miles from us. It is a unique grave marker and I don’t recall if I have seen another like it.
The name NUDING is inscribed on the west side of the cabin, the side that looks like like the front, with a door and window.
A scythe is carved on the south end of the cabin.
Smaller smaller “log” pieces are on the ground near the cabin, inscribed with the names of John Fredrick Nuding (1814-1857) and his wife Barbara (Engle) (1818-1900).
According to Find a Grave.com, John Nuding was born in Germany and was married to Barbara Engle.
