Tombstone Tuesday - Zion Reformed German Church, Poland, Clay Co, Indiana

 In June 2008, I found a website that had photos from the Zion Cemetery in Clay Co, Indiana. [http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~inclay/zioncem/POLor.html].  I found a photo of the tombstone for Saml Rodenberger, my 4th great grandfather who died on 7 October 1845 in Owen Co, Indiana.   Samuel Rodenberger owned parcels of land in both Owen and Clay Counties, Indiana. 

In May 2010, I visited this cemetery and took a photo of Saml's gravestone.  The amount of deterioration from 2005, when the website was established, to 2010 is amazing!  Thankfully, so many people are photographing gravestone before they become illegible or broken.
