Alfonzo Gerner - Tombstone Tuesday

Alfonzo / Alphonzo Gerner

Alphonzo Gerner
Husband of
Elva W. Covert
1874  ---  1952

Alfonzo is buried in Bear Creek Cemetery, Butler County, Pennsylvania.

Alfonzo has, perhaps, more given name variations than most people have surname variations.  They include Alfonzo, Alphonzo, Alphonso, Fon, Fawn, and possibly more I haven't remembered.

Thanks to Zachary Pyle for the photograph.

I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by.
