This blog series explores the lives of Ley ancestors as revealed in their obituaries. Much of this information was gathered during a March 2011 research trip to Tuscarawas and Harrison counties in Ohio. A scan of the obituary is available at the bottom of this post.

From the The Daily Reporter (Dover, Ohio), Monday, March 16:
