*George Garner's grave has no stone.  He killed Frank Hosick, a brother-in-law with whom he lived, in a fight with a knife he pulled in a fist fight.  He was placed in the Hamilton co. jail and sent word he would be home on a certain night.  He then hanged himself and made good his word by being brought home.  Frank is buried in another cemetery.  George was age 30 years.
