Studebaker burials in Rock Chapel Cemetery
15 August 2013
Dear Michael,
Leaving a public message seems a whole lot easier than wading through your many genealogical involvements to reach you directly. Regarding Rock Chapel in Adams County: note that all of the Studebaker / Studebecker burials are family members of Peter "G" Studebaker. Please note the middle initial "G" which differentiates him from other Peter Studebakers in Adams and York counties. Much of the research of earlier genealogists of Peter G., as published in "The Studebaker Family in America, 1976" is incorrect and incomplete. But it provided the basis of my research to, hopefully, "set the record straight." Can share selected data via GEDCOM for Find A Grave if receptive.

RE: Frank S. Rowland
You had the section they were in and I happened to stumble accross them. The cemetery is quite large and is terraced around the valley it is in. To find a request without a section is like finding a needle in a haystack and the office people aren't very helpful unless you are related.

RE: Alice S. Taughenbaugh
Sorry for not repling sooner. Was hoping for a bad winter to get back on this site. I most likely put Alice in the wrong cemetery as my cousin was helping me with photo's and forgot to write down cemetery names. I'm in the process of re-visiting the cemeteries we did and making any corrections I need to make. I do have a great aunt Alice S. (Taughenbaugh) Lakin, but she's buried in Harrisburg. I will see where my mistake is and make the corrections. Thanks for letting me know about the error. If I do find another Alice in the Adams County area cemeteries I'll move her name into the correct cemetery.

Hi Michael,

I hope these messages have found you well.

I have been to the cemetery and have taken the photos of the Rowland and Blair markers (as well as the Edward Poliak and a Wilson monument that may or may not be related....will explain below.

The markers for Harriet O. Rowland, Sherman L. & Hattie R. Blair, and Louise E. Blair were so very hard to read that I made rubbings of them, outlined the letters in black, and then took photos of those pages (I hope you don't mind.) I took photos of the actual markers so you could see them too.

Mystery 1: Who is Georgia Wood?
Mystery 2: Who is Edward A. Poliak?

Solved: Georgia is actually Georgina and Dix's
youngest Daughter, born in 1912. Her name is actually Georgina Harriet Rowland. On her marker, she is named: Georgina Rowland-Wilson=Wood. And, APPARENTLY there were other marriages in between.
Her 1st Husband, John Laurence Wilson, died young, in 1940. (the monument mentioned above MAY be people related to John Laurence Wilson).
Husband #2 was THE Dr. Edward Albert Poliak. He was a dentist and they married in 1945 (copy of marriage record obtained). Georgina and Dix's eldest Daughter (and the younger Georgina's Sister), Ellen Rowland-Pennell and HER Husband, Maynard, were witnesses at the wedding. Edward died in 1967 and then Georgina married Sidney Lester Nelson in 1973 (copy of marriage record obtained).
Then at some point she married Mr. Wood (not sure of his first name).

Georgina Rowland-Wilson and John Laurence Wilson had a Son, John Rowland Wilson, who may still be alive.

Georgina's Mother was Nellie Daly-Clulow and her Father was James Clulow. James was a Methodist Preacher. There are some Daly's mentioned as living with them in the 1885 Otley, Marion County, Iowa Census. Georgina was born in December 1881 in Ireland along with her Parents and immigrated to the US in about 1883. Including Georgina, there are 5 children of James and Nellie's as living in 1900: 4 shown as living in the 1900 Brainerd, Crow Wing County, Minnesota census: Georgina; Lillian J., IA (Sept 1886); Pearl V., IA (Nov 1888); and William M., IA (Sept 1890).

James Clulow's Parents were Joseph Clulow and Elizabeth Greenleaf. He was born Sept 1853 in Ireland and he died 11 Oct 1922 in Seattle, King County, Washington.
