Tombstone Tuesday – 02/16/10


Adam [?]eist
June 23, 1829?
Nov. 1, 19[?]8

Adam is buried in St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Bloomington.




I just looked on Ancestry, and I believe that headstone is Adam Geist, who was born in Germany. He was living in Philadelphia in 1880, and after his wife died, he moved in with his daughter in Dry Grove Township, Mc Lean county, Illinois. He is listed with them in the 1910 census, and doesn't show up on the 1920 census. So Then I believe his death year to be 1918.

Thanks for the clarifications!
