Tombstone of John LeamerJohn Leamer died on January 10, 1820. He was the son of Henry and Christina (Gordon) Leamer, and husband of Elizabeth. John was the first burial in the Geeseytown Cemetery, Frankstown, Blair, Pennsylvania, and he is buried next to his father. His tombstone was misidentified as J.L. Hier on the 1939 cemetery survey and also in the BCGS list. Birthdate of April 17 (no longer legible) was viewed in 1985, but mistaken for the death date. "J.L." still readable on top as well as the word "Hier" (for Heir ruhet - here lies). "He" also visible, probably originally read 'son of Henry'. Thanks to Kathy Weigel and for this photo and the tombstone information.
