Tombstone Tuesday - Rudy and Elfreda Homire

Tombstone of Rudy and Elfreda Homire
This is the tombstone of Rudy and Elfreda (Jacobs) Homire located at Keystone Cemetery, Kane township, Benton County, Iowa. Rudy Homire is my half-first cousin, three times removed. Rudy's grandmother Charlotte (Kiesel-Homire) is my 3rd great grandmother, but by her 2nd husband. He is the son of Lewis and Lena Homire.

According to familysearch.org's Iowa birth records, Rudy and his brother Roy were both born November 19, 1903. I don't know if they were identical or fraternal twins. His brother Roy is buried in Keystone Cemetery, but quite a few rows to the east.

Rudy Homire and Elfreda Jacobs were married January 31, 1923 in Vinton township, Benton, Iowa according to marriage records on familysearch.org.
