Funeral card for Mr John R Wollie March 20, 1893.
I found John Robertson Wyllie on ancestry and his census info and also a find a grave memorial page. He has a beautiful cemetery monument with a lovely passage engraved on the side, part of which are the closing lines of an 1883 Christian hymn... "We shall know each other better When the mist has cleared away". Also this funeral card is shown.
He was born in England 11 Nov 1845 and died 27 Jan 1893 in Columbiana Co, Ohio. He was a prominent businessman owning J R Wyllie and Son's Pottery Co in Ohio and West VA with his son Harry R Wyllie who continued the business after his father died. He was married to Fannie Arnold Wyllie and had a daughter Hannah Wyllie and a son John Thomas Wyllie who died young with TB. I enjoyed researching this man and family.
Hope this is helpful to someone.
