Tombstone Tuesday: Crossing Families

So, it looks like I’m running low on headstone photos. Darn you, Tombstone Tuesday. I’m going to start posting headstones from my wife’s family research.

This week’s headstone is from her great-great grandparent’s Gustave Ferdinand GYRION and his wife Josephine FRANCOIS. Gustave was born in 1858 in Belgium and passed away in 1934. Josephine was born in 1870 in Door Co., Wisconsin and passed away 21 Feb 1950 in Cook Co., Illinois. They are buried in Plover Cemetery in Plover, Portage Co., Wisconsin.

About Brian Zalewski

I started genealogy research about mid-1999. My grandfather had passed away in April of that year. Since then I’ve done a lot of research not only for myself, but for friends and other relatives. In 2006, I married the love of my life, Darcy, and welcomed the birth of our daughter, Aerissa Jean, in 2010 and our son, Xander Lee, in 2012.
