Matthias Sappenfield died
August 2, 1872 buried Philadelphia Lutheran Cemetery, Parke County, Indiana. I have a photo of Matthias' gravestone which gives a birth date of March 12, 1790 and death date August 2, 1872, the name is given as Matt Sappenfield, there is something carved in the base of the stone but I didn't get a chance to get a rubbing of it.
