Tombstone Tuesday – Oscar Rowan Lindsay

Last week, we visited the grave of my Great-Grandmother Edith Margret Basham Lindsay, so this week I thought we would stop by her son’s and my Poppo’s (Grandfather) Oscar Rowan Lindsay grave.  Poppo was born in Stratford, Ontario, Canada on 21 Nov 1917 to Oscar and Edith Basham Lindsay.  In 1923 the family immigrated to Detroit, Michigan.

In 1948, he married my Grandmother Lucille Mielke (see there wedding post here). He and Lucille had 3 daughters and 7 grandchildren. He worked for the J. L. Hudson company and was a city councilmen for the city of Ferndale, Michigan.  He was also very active in the Masonic Lodge and with the Shriner’s.   He is buried at Grand Lawn Cemetery in Detroit, Michigan.
