Our sincere appreciation to Brian Dickey for being so giving of his time to go to the Elk City Cemetery to take a photo of Rosalind's headstone and post it at this memorial. THANK YOU BRIAN, our family is truly grateful!

Rosalind B. was the daughter of Parker Winslow and Allie B. (KINCAID) MASTERS. She was born in Arkansas during June 1885 (per 1900 U. S. Federal Census) and was the second child of three daughters born to Parker and Allie; her sisters were: Bertha Louella and Ruby Parker.

The three sisters suffered the lost of their father in 1889, then their mother in 1897. When their mother passed, Bertha was age 13, Rosalind 11, and Ruby 8. The girls were separated from one another and placed in the homes of three different families until they reached maturity.

Rosalind "Rose" MASTERS married Arthur ABRAHAM about 1909 in Nebraska and they lived their lives on his ranch near Valley in Douglas County, Nebraska.

She became a beloved step-mother to Arthur's baby son, Russell, whose mother, Bessie, had died February 5, 1907 of pneumonia about one month after his birth. Rose and Arthur had two children: a daughter, Bernice, and a son, Arthur Ward ABRAHAM.
