Son of Edmund Marbaker and Thankful Cottrell

Aged 1 year 5 months 6 Left sideThere is a small stone in great shape and a small footstone recording PMPhillieSon of Edmund and Thankful Cottrell MarbakerHe passed November 1, 1862 aged 1 year 5 monthsHappy infant early blestRest in peaceful sleep (evermore?) 2 more unmarked small stones follow; maybe they are for the two children of Joseph and Susan Cottrell Marbaker I think I would be remiss if I didn't mention that Joseph and Susan Cottrell Marbaker lost two children born 1849 1860, one son and one daughter. Those children are probably buried at Fowler Hill. Joseph and Thankful Cottrell Marbaker buried their son Phillie at Fowler Hill, therefore why wouldn't his brother bury his children alongside? The father's were brothers, the mothers were sisters, and just maybe these were their family plots. There is plenty of space next to the Phillie Marbaker gravesite; there are 2 other unmarked flagstones, which could represent those children. Edward and Thankful Marbaker are buried in Beaver Meadows Cemetery along with Joseph and Susan Marbaker. The time period the children of Joseph Marbaker likely died would have been before burials began at Beaver Meadows in the mid 1860's. Fowler Hill Cemetery would have been the perfect place for internment of their children. The obituary of Susan Marbaker records these children. Susan G Marbaker was born in Rhode Island November 30, 1816, and died at her home on Fowler Hill January 3, 1901. Her maiden name was Cottrell. She was a cousin of the late Reverend William H Olin of the Wyoming Conference, a very prominent and much loved minister. While quite young she came to Pennsylvania with her parents. She was united in marriage with Joseph Marbaker August 20, 1843. For about 55 years they lived together, he dying about four years ago the 25th of March. She was the mother of seven children, three boys and four girls, two dying in infancy. About 50 years ago they purchased the place where both of them died. It was then a dense wilderness. Mr. Marbaker cleared up his farm, and for a half century lived to enjoy it. Not long after their purchase at Fowler Hill, a union church was built at Beaver Meadow, nearby. Mr. And Mrs. Marbaker were deeply interested in the building of this church, and did much toward it. Not far from that time, she and her husband were united with the Wesleyan Methodist Church. Both of them remained faithful members of the same church until called to the church above. The writer, for his first pastorate, was appointed to the field, which included this point. Hence had had the privilege of her acquaintance a number of years ago. She was a woman of true religious life, quiet and unassuming, but kind and true, as a friend and a follower of Jesus. She lived long and witnessed many changes during her stay here. She leaves to friends a glorious legacy; not of money, but of Christian character and life. May those who are left to mourn be comforted by the same grace, which supported and kept her all the way of her earthly journey G.O.B
