I’m participating in Cemetery Sunday, hosted over at Beneath Thy Feet.

Abslom Gunyon, as simply stated on this marker at Riverside Cemetery in Noblesville, Indiana.

The marker caught my eye because of his unusual name.   I found other Absalom Gunyons in different census records, such as 11 year-old Absalom Gunyon in the 1860 census record of Wayne County, Indiana — and obviously, this isn’t the same person as the one in this cemetery, as he’s much too young.   There’s an “A Gunyon” who also shows up in two different census years in Indiana, but the age is also wrong to be this particular person.     So perhaps the name wasn’t as unusual as I thought.
