I see that John Ruckenhouser is your grandfather. I am wondering if you know where Ethel is buried. She was married to my dad's uncle. She is not with Ruth as some of the family thought. Feel free to contact me.

My great grandfather was Willis Gordon, my grand mother was Pearl Gordon Peterson Lawbaugh. Pearl was married to my grandfather Lincoln Lawbaugh.
Would you know where Willis Gordon was buried?
Also, would you know where Emily Gordon's daughter, Pearl Gordon's first husband, Ernest Peterson is buried?

Received your message regarding the identity of the woman in the photo posted to Lincoln Lawbaugh's memorial. I didn't post this photo and have no information about it. Do you want me to add a Note that the woman is not Pearl? If you have a photo of Pearl with or without Lincoln, you can post it to their memorials. Best regards.

Karen, believe me it's no trouble. I can walk to the Post Hill cemetery. Let me know the dates for sure and I'll go back.

I am so glad you found your 4th G-Grandmother. The stone is in such good shape that I suspect it had been buried for a good period of time. It does not look like it has been restored.
There are a few memorials I established which I will never forget; Eleanor is one of them. She was so concerned about being remembered.
I think newspaperarchive.com might offer a trial period. You could get a copy of the full article about her. (This site provides many more tools to obtain good article copies than ancestry.com. Alternatively, please send me an email address and I'll send you a copy.)
It would be great if you could provide any information about Jacob you find to add to her memorial.

I just wantd to let you know that George has a new Civil War headstone. I have added a photo to his memorial.

|Marc Chase||George Gordon Headstone|
I saw your photo for Civil War veteran George Gordon, who is buried at the Hebron Cemetery in Hebron, IN. It's # 40838799.
I'm familiar with the stone and belong to a group that has been successfully applying for new headstones for Civil War veterans throughout our region.
Your entry for this photo indicates a years of death of 1870 and also indicates he died during the Civil War. Because the war ended in 1865, this is either a misprinted year of death or a mixup of some kind.
Just FYI. He mustered out of the Army in 1865, so I don't think he died in service. Do you remember where you obtained his date-of-death information? It's not on the stone. We're preparing his headstone applicaton through the VA and want to make sure we get the inscription correctly entered.

|Craig Rohrer||RE: Off of the Subject of George Maxwell|
Thanks for your comments on my Military Burials book. Copies are on file at the two libraries in the county, and are updated each year.
The Market is what is commonly referred to as an "ad paper". It is published weekly in North Judson, and is delevered widely throughout the county, by mail and by freestanding distribution piles in many businesses. It has been published since about 1983. The obituaries it publishes are generally much more detailed than those printed in The Leader (newspaper of record), which at times even leaves out the burial location, and birth and death locations. The Market is not microfilmed, so the only source for its old obituaries are the books I have published with scans of the obits. from 2007-2009, with 2010 in process, and 2005 and 2006 in the early stages of preparation.
For your research question, the North Judson/Wayne Township library might have info. on early obituaries for your family (see their web site). I think the Knox library may have a listing of some earlier (pre 1900) obituaries. Of course, the Starke County Genealogical Society might also be of help, but this would be on a fee basis (see their website).

Thank you for the substantually better tombstone picture. I can not quite make out his age at death. Was it 47 years, 10 months, 8 days? If you can determine his age, I can then add his calculated date of birth.

|Rebecca Evans||RE: William B Post|
I didn't notice anything about the headstone that was out of the ordinary, but now that you mention it, the stone doesn't match its pedestal. Also, it looks really good for being put up in 1909. In the cemetery where I usually post in Newtown PA, 1909 headstones look good since there is perpetual care. This cemetery however, is a mess, which would leave me to believe that this stone looks too good to be 101. Was he in the Civil War? Maybe a veteran's group did it. I hope they nailed it down well.
Check out Thomas Temple's stone. I missed the Gervis' and another family, starts with an S, since theirs too was knocked over and unreadable among the poison ivy.
That pile of stones at the bottom of the cemetary is gone.

I posted a pic of the stone for William B Post. While the death date matches, your birthdate doesn't. Let me know if this is the wrong Post, but this cemetary is so small, I doubt there are two of them.

I recieved your info and that is very interesting. Grace Ruckenhouser was 2 years old in 1910 ( as shown in the census for that year.She was the last child that Margaret had before her death. John gave Grace up for adoption that same year and she went to an orphanage until she was 10. Her name was changed to Clara Prus. Grace or "Clara" was my grandmother. Are you aware of the way John died? Iam planning a trip to Muncie as soon as it warms up and will post the grave photos.
