: John N Rackham
Brenda, I guess we are related then. Back in the lat 90's I traveled around to cousin Rackham's that I didn't know and got to hear stories and collect pictures of distant relatives. I saw a cupboard that was passed down from John N.. It was owned by the wife of my dad John's deceased brother. It was a cherished object from the 1800's Rackham family.
Did you hear the story of how when John N. emigrated from Loestoff, England and first arrived in Utah, he had to send his son John all the way back to England to get genealogical records so they could baptize the dead relatives? Also I recorded the train route they took across the country,(It ended short of Utah), so they walked in the rest of the way.
I also learned other stories about the family and how the valuable property was conned away.

Thank you Brenda,
Thank you for adding the photos of my Great Great Grandfather John Rackham. It was interesting to see my Great Great Grandmother listed as one of his two wives. You have given us Rackham's great joy to see they have such a beautiful grave site and wonderful headstone. Rick Rackham

Thank you for creating this memorial. Nancy Ann Wagoner is my husband's ancestor. We have this same picture but it was identified as another person, Agnes Hunter. I have no knowledge of the source of information. Are you confident about your source? If so I will change my information.
Thank you~

Mildred Johnson
Hi Brenda;
I looked for Mildred Johnson and found Phillip Johnson, and no Mildred with the name? I looked at the plot map for the cemetery and Mildred was not on the map? I'm not sure if she is buried with Phillip or in another grave? I need more information if you can help me with it. Please let me know if you have more information?

RE: Isakson Family Members
You are welcome. I did look in the area around Andrew & Charlotte's stone for a child, but I did not find anything for you. The leaves were blowing and I might possibly have missed a very small flat stone, but I don't think so. Sorry to have nothing better to report.

RE: Lydia Reno
Actually, he was married three times, but I haven't enough to go on to psot his third wife's memorial.

OZIAS RENO, farmer, P.O. Freedom, was born in New Sewickley township, July 23, 1834, a son of Isaac and Nancy Reno, natives of Pennsylvania, and who died in Freedom. They were the parents of two children. Ozias, the only one living, was united in marriage Oct. 12, 1854, with Lydia, daughter of William Carey (deceased). She was born in Maryland, May 8, 1835, and was the mother of eleven children, five living. She died Feb. 8, 1879. July 26, 1880, Mr. Reno married Talitha A. Pritchard, who was born in Allegheny City Feb. 6, 1839, and is a daughter of Daniel and Esther Pritchard, both living. Mr. Reno was reared on a farm. When the war broke out he enlisted in Company H, 139th Regiment, P. V., and served his country nearly three years. Mrs. Reno is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church. They moved to St. Clair borough from New Sewickley township in 1883, and bought the place where they now reside.

After this was written he evidently married Matilda

Gillespie Cemetery
Gad, you'd think I wouldn't typo my OWN last name.....

Added by Jan on Jul 26, 2011 9:17 PM

Oh, it makes sense now! Yes, the family is in Gillespie Cemetery and I am a member of the board for the cemetery. I did add the obituaries as I researched them. They are one of the few families who are not related to the Gillsepies, so they must have been friends or neighbors as the burials of that era were. I am sorry but that is pretty much all of the information that I have. If you find that I have made errors, please let me know. Also, if your friend would like a clearer marker photo, I can go there next Saturday. Let me know. Good luck. ~ Jan

You are most welcome. It is sad to see these stones with so much damage. There are some where the whole face is gone. I do have more Lester photos to upload, but the site went down for maintenance while I was working on it. So I will get back to that now while I have time. Cheryl
