Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

|Marilyn Hayes||Richard Pickering Barr|
I found your memorial for Richard Pickering Barr, husband of Cremora Sprinkle. I have proved beyond a doubt that Richard Pickering Barr, while awaiting sentencing for the murder of David B. Steigel in Madison County, Virginia on Aug. 6, 1866, was given a furlough and vanished from Virginia. He ended up in Coles County, Illinois and married my Great-Aunt, Margaret Anne North, under a new name of Rudolphus Pinkerton Barr. I have his death certificate in which he names his father as George Washington Barr (1804-1889) and his mother as Mariah Henning (1818-1905. I and a couple of his Sprinkle descendants concluded that he must have "Left town and didn't look back". Margaret North married R. P. Barr on May 21 1874 in Coles County, Illinois, Vol. F., page 222.
I also found where is he buried. It is Highland Lawn Cemetery in Harrison, Vigo County, Indiana.
If you would like to contact me:
|Claudia Davenport-Sullivan||Thomas Fitzwater, Jr - Memorial# 62762381|
Thomas Fitzwater's step-mother was Elizabeth Coates, widow of George Palmer (1640-1682). George Palmer died at sea on the ship Elizabeth Ann & Catherine. Thomas Hudson, master, witnessed his will at sea dated 4 Sept 1682. Elizabeth Coates was the daughter of Henry Coates and Elizabeth Walker and had 10 siblings, at least 3 brothers came to the colonies about the same time: John, William and Thomas Coates. George Palmer was a "first purchaser" of 5,000 acres by deed of lease and re-lease dated 21 and 22 of April, 1682. By his last Will, he gave to his wife 1,000 and to his 5 children, Geo, Jno, Thos, Wm and Elizabeth (wife of Ralph Jackson), each 800 acres. Elizabeth (Coates) Palmer had 500 at the head of Moreland and 500 in dispute on the Neshaminy. On 12 Sept, 1715, Owen Roberts purchased 500 acres of the original 5,000 acres of land from William & Thomas Palmer, sons of George Palmer, deceased. Elizabeth (Coates) Palmer married 2nd widower Thomas Fitzwater, 1st intentions declared 2mo [Apr] 1, 1684 and the affairs of the estate of her husband were to be secure before the meeting (Philadelphia MM) would authorize the marriage; they received authorization 2 months later on 4mo [June] 3, 1684 at Philadelphia Monthly Meeting, Philadelphia, PA. From these minutes it can be determined that Elizabeth created a scandal among Friends by leaving him with no end result. Thomas Fitzwater’s first wife, Mary (Chaney), died enroute on the Welcome before its arrival on 27 October 1682 as did two of their children from small pox. In 1686 at Oreland (now defunct) in Dublin (now Upper Dublin) Twp, Philadelphia (now Montgomery) Cnty , Thomas Fitzwater discovered vast lime deposits on his land and erected a kiln to process it by 1693. Penn ordered a highway built from the port of the Delaware River to the kiln, named Limekiln Pike. It was one of the first roads in the area, about 13 miles northwest of Philadelphia at what came to be known as Fitzwatertown, then Philadelphia County, now Montgomery. He was a member of the Provincial Assembly from Bucks County in 1683 and again, after his removal to Philadelphia, in 1690. The will of Thomas Fitzwater, Sr is undated but probated 10 mo 2, 1699, Philadelphia Will BookPage: B:5, witnessed by Anthony Morris, George Grey and William Southeby. It mentions wife Elizabeth, only sons Thomas & George Fitzwater and “daughter-in-law” (step-daughter) Elizabeth (Palmer) Jackson.
