1. Marker Number
When they cast this marker, they must have made a mistake and mis-numbered it. On the marker, the number reads 5-47, however, the number 47 actually stands for "Lorain County," not "Lucas County." If you go to the remarkableohio.org website, you will find that marker number 5-47 is actually "Myron T. Herrick (1854-1929)," and if you look under Lucas County you will find that corrected number assignment for this marker is 30-48 (with the number "48" standing for "Lucas County").
