Tombstone Tuesday - Rudolph & Margaret (Grus) Grunloh

Rudolph Grunloh was born 01 Nov 1834 in Oldenburg, Germany.  He married Margaret Grus, who was born 02 Feb 1836 in Loeningen, Oldenburg, Germany.  The two of them immigrated to the United States prior to 10 Oct 1873, when their first child Johanna Grunloh was born in Avon, Stearns County, Minnesota.  Rudolph and Margaret homesteaded there.  They were some of the early pioneers of that part of Stearns County.  They are buried together in the old Saint Benedict's Parish Cemetery, Avon, Stearns County, Minnesota, which is a stone's throw off of Interstate 94 tucked into a little copse of trees.  Their stone is in excellent condition, clearly readable, which is not the case for a number of other stones in that cemetery.
