Solomon Hightshoe, daughter Anna

In searching through my Aunt Betty's things as she had just passed, we found her mother-in-law's death certificate. My aunt, Sabena Elizabeth Hirt was married to Carl Fromm. Mother Fromm lived with them until just before her death. Carl and Betty never talked about Mother Fromm or the rest of Carl's family. To me, growing up, he was an orphan. The death certificate shows that "Mother Fromm" was Anna L. Hightshoe, daughter of Solomon and Minerva Jane Burley Hightshoe. Although Betty and Carl lived in Columbus, Ohio, Anna was buried in the Mt Horeb Cemetery, Crooksville, Perry County, Ohio. (First we knew that she wasn't from Columbus). She was a widow at the time so her husband was not listed on the certificate. My Uncle Carl's death certificate may have the information but I'm in Wisconsin right now, not Columbus, and haven't checked the obvious yet. His death certificate is probably amongst the many, many boxes yet to go through in Aunt Betty's house. We just happened upon the envelope with the 1971 papers in them.

Anna was born October 29, 1886 and died August 9, 1971.

Any information about her family is greatly appreciated.
