Tombstone Tuesday – Michael Sanor /Zeynor

These are the tombstones for Michael Sanor, aka Zeynor/Zehner.  He was an American Revolutionary War Patriot.  He served in the 8th Pennsylvania regiment under Captains Eli Miers and Michael Huffnagle, and Colonels Brodhead and Mackey.  The stone on the left is his original one, and the one on the right is for his military service.  As you can see, the stone on the left reads ‘Michael Sanor’, and the one on the right reads ‘Michael Zeynor.’  Michael was my 6th great-grandfather.
