Girlinghouse, C H (Christian Henry) Jun 16, 1840 Jul 23, 1864 It has been proven that both the birthdates (dates & years) on this tombstone are very inaccurate. It is also a fact that Christian Henry's year of death was not 1864 because two of his four sons were born AFTER 1864. It is likely that if any of the dates are accurate it would be Joanna's date of death. BIO (RH)
