Family Bible Sheets from Charlie McCullough sent to me Jan. 14, 2002, by Eursey Morton showed that Robert C. Colbaugh, father of Sarah Jane Colbaugh Adams is buried here, March 6, 1903.

Charlie is grandson of Belle Colbaugh, Sarah’s sister.

When I can confirm this and the exact location I will have a marker installed for him. Robert was my Gr. Grandfather.
