Horsch - "I believe that the two stones that do not have a last name is Horsch. Henry Horsch was born in Baden (Germany) about 1819. His first wife, Barbara was born in Baden also in 1825.  She is listed in the June 7,1870 Federal census and can't be found after that date. Henry may have died in 1899. Their son, John Horsch, married my cousin, Jennie Morrison..they later moved to California where they are buried.  I am sure that Henry and Barbara with no last names are John's parents. I notice that there is a Henry and a Elizabeth Horsch in the cemtery also.  This might be a daughter of Henry and Barbara."  February 2010, from Carolyn Gutzmer
