This is the very first tombstone photo I ever took in my genealogy research, back in July 2007. It belongs to my great-great-grandfather John Henry Gauslin. John was born to John B. Gauslin and Elizabeth "Eliza" (Christian) Gauslin on 07 Oct 1843 in Springfield, Massachusetts. John and his family lived in West Troy (now Watervliet), New York before moving to Fond du Lac, Wisconsin in the 1850s.

John married Mary Jane Montgomery on 26 Jan 1867 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. They had nine children: John H. Gauslin, George E. Gauslin, Louisa George Anna "Georgie" (Gauslin) Mann, John Henry Gauslin, Robert A. Gauslin, Mary Evelyn "Eva" (Gauslin) Martin, Peter Herbert Gauslin, Edith Anora (Gauslin) Nault Moore, and James Coville Gauslin. They lived in northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan until Mary Jane died in 1889. Sometime in the 1890s, John moved to Everett, Washington, and moved around frequently after that. In 1910, he lived in Port Orchard, Washington; in January 1920, with his brother Anthony John Gauslin and his family in Trona, California.
