"Toni" Knighton, 86, of Newark, passed away Thursday, March 30, 2017, at Licking Memorial Hospital, surrounded by her loving family.
The tombstone simply read: WILSON December 20, 1856 7 Yrs. The case began when a local lady found a tombstone while cleaning out her mother’s house in Schaumburg Township.
The family moved here in 1965 and, in those early days, her mother enjoyed antiquing in the area.
This time I entered the name, the birth year of 1849, the last name I know from past research that, even though most of the area was occupied by farmers of German descent at that time, it was still early enough that the original English settlers could be found living in Schaumburg Township.
