Caroline Marsteller - Buss (1834-1912)
Hi Tom!
After a lot of research on my family, particularly Catherine "Kate" Eichelberger (1826-1900), my 3rd Great Grand Aunt, I stumbled on a lot of information about her husband, Reuben H Buss (1829-1906). Reuben had a few wives, but evidently Caroline Marsteller-Buss (1834-1912) was not one of them. According to US Censuses, Caroline was married to SIMON Buss from 1862 until his death in 1906. Reuben & Caroline do not appear to have ever been married, and Reuben & Simon are not even closely related.
Please correct me if I'm wrong. The current information on this "love triangle" got very confusing. Please help!

Thank you so much for the photos! It is very difficult to tell from the photo what the headstone for Maria Margaret Leidy Hengey says. Were you able to read it better in person?

Hi Tom,
I think you're probably right that it's a different Tobias. However, there could be some other relation. I wish I could tell. I will email you the pages from the Ardmore history book.

RE: George and Catherine Fluck Smith
The Ardmore history mentions some relatives but not his parents. I reviewed my files and see that I do not have a birth year on Find A Grave. That, I now remember, is because the year isn't confirmed. I only have census records to provide any idea and you know how reliable they are....

1. The 1820 census lists him as 26-44.
2. 1830 lists him as age 30-39.
3. 1840 40-49
4. The 1850 census lists him as being born circa 1796 (54 yoa).However, the 1850-1885 US Census Mortality Schedules provide his birth 1792.

As you can see, I don't know the birth year. However, I wonder why he wasn't included in the will you referenced.

RE: George and Catherine Fluck Smith
My Tobias was born in Bucks County. He lived in Lower Merion and Ardmore during his lifetime. He had a large smoked ham distribution business. He was married too Ann Louise (--). Tobias' story is told in a book written on Ardmore's history.

I hope we can make a connection. My research on this line has caused me to hit a brickwall.
