I suspect the connection here is that Margret STEARNS and Leah (STAINER) SHULTZ are sisters.  Mary STEARNS appears to be Margret's mother-in-law, not Leah's mother.

George & Leah should be age 52, not 60.  By birth, Emeline and Malinda are surnamed STEARNS; they may be nieces, and they appear to have been adopted by our subjects.  Franklin and Emerson are nephews.

Name George Shultz Leah Sterns Shultz
Birth 14 Apr 1818, Ohio 1818, Somerset, Somerset Co., PA
Death 25 Jul 1898, Knox Co., OH 9 Mar 1900, Knox Co., OH
Note Extensive notes, including the statement, "His burial location is unknown and not listed in Knox County cemetery books."  If so, why is he shown buried in Amity Cemetery? Notes include census records, from which the creator of this memorial has apparently made the assumption that the Mary STEARNS in 1850 is Leah's mother.  Leah's marriage record argues otherwise (q.v.).
Burial Amity Cemetery, Knox Co., OH Amity Cemetery, Knox Co., OH
