Tombstone Tuesday – Newton and Lola (Welty) Link

Today’s tombstone is for my great grandparents, Newton and Lola (Welty) Link.  Newton and Lola are buried in the Nevada Cemetery near Nevada, Ohio.

Newton Henry LINK b. 22 Nov 1876 in Eden Twp, Wyandot County, Ohio
                                   d. 22 Mar 1967 in Ft. Wayne, Indiana
                                  m. 07 May 1897 in Wyandot County, Ohio

Lola WELTY             b. 27 Aug 1875 in Defiance County, Ohio
                                   d. 13 Nov 1928 in Franklin, Ohio

I have a great deal of conflicting evidence as to Lola’s middle name.  In several records, I have found her middle name listed as Laverdia, or Verdie, but interestingly, her tombstone has the middle initial of “D.”  I have not been able to find any evidence to suggest what the D may have stood for, so at this point, I have to leave Lola’s middle name as a mystery.
