Welcome to the 6th Taphophile Tragics on this blog — and the first TT for the new year!

Leonidas Eastin-Mt Olivet-MO

Leonidas Eastin, son of J.J. and H.L. Eastin.  Born on May 5, 1876 and died on January 22, 1891.   He is buried in Mount Olivet Cemetery in Kearney, MO, and his parents are also in this cemetery.  I didn’t have much time to spend in this cemetery, and wound up only taking the photo of Leonidas’ stone (admittedly, because his name caught my eye).   I found a tiny bit more about this family, courtesy of Jane Leavell, which says:

 HARRIET LOUISA LEAVELL (LEONIDAS WORT, LEWIS LIVINGSTON, BENJAMIN, EDWARD, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born 1844 in Kentucky, USA, and died January 29, 1877. She married JOHN L. EASTIN December 04, 1872 in Clay County, Missouri, USA. He was born June 08, 1833, and died May 15, 1878. For both, burial in Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Kearney, Clay County, MO

…..i…..LEONIDAS EASTIN, b. 1874.
…..ii…..ROMA EASTIN, b. 1876.”
