Youth, virtue, beauty

On November 7, 1861, twenty-year-old Georgeanna Lawson married Jefferson Zollinger in Franklin County, Ohio. A few months before the couple’s two-year anniversary, Georgeanna Zollinger (b. 1841, d. 1863) died.

Georgeanna’s grave marker in Pioneer Cemetery is decorated with a bouquet of flowers, including a lily (youth and virtue) and a rose (beauty).
