Today's Tombstone Tuesday post features two relatives I don't know anything about other than from the records I've found in my research: Margaret Florence (Smith) Akin and her husband Donald George Akin. Margaret was born September 23, 1922 in Racine, Racine County, Wisconsin and died December 30, 2009, also in Racine. Donald was born August 26, 1920 in Racine and died 10 Apr 1993 in Hudson, Pasco County, Florida. Donald worked as a stone cutter and served in the Army from 1943 to 1946. Margaret worked at the First National Bank, and according to her obituary, really loved dogs.

Margaret's parents were Raymond James Smith and Martha Margaret (Gotsche) Smith. Martha Smith was the sister of my great-grandfather Elmer Ferdinand Gotsche, making Margaret my grandmother's first cousin and my first cousin twice removed.

Margaret and Donald are buried side by side at West Lawn Memorial Park in Mount Pleasant, Racine County, Wisconsin.
