Hi David I'm guessing you are part of the John and Edmund Rathbun line. I to go up through that line also. I first start with Clora Rathbun and her father William Clayton Rathbun. Don't know if we could help each other on our lines.

Rathbuns in Wheeling, WV
Mount Wood Cemetery in Wheeling lists: Alice Rathboure, Estus Rathboure, and JS Rathboure. I think these are the relatives you need info about, but of course I'm not sure. Today I searched the cemetery where I suspect they are buried. The bad news is that this area has been poorly maintained with very little recognizable. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Hi David
If you call and ask the cemetery which section your loved one is in and message us we will be glad to go back through that section for you. We just finished walking the entire cemetery finding lots of relatives for people. Let us know!

Hi David: For some reason the person who originally had created the memorial at Melrose for Harley has been deleted from Findagrave. I have recreated the memorial and am transferring to you since you are an ancestor.

Rathburn At Melrose Abbey
David, greetings. Awhile ago another reketive created a memorial for him w/out knowing one had already been made. The person that created the original, Roy, threw a tizzy and had it al
the new one removed although it had a ton of information about Rathburn. It also had my photos that I added. So we both went to add all info to the original memorial. Roy deleted It all since he wasnt the one to add information and photos. Just giving you a heads up. Rathburn was a very unique and colorful individual, thars for sure!

RE: jonathan rathbun
Thank you very much for your information, it has proved invaluable as to some of the things I was looking for.
I was unable, for some reason to access the page.
The page is a wonderful collection of the Rathbun History periodicals. I have gleaned a wealth of information. Some good, some not so good.
re: jonathan rathbun b.1734 and jonathan rathbun b.1762. Please look at - Index 0/04-1984 04-001 pg 7 and 04-002 pg 22 (the first reference is for the jonathans - the second is an article about John Cooley's "Rathbone Genealogy"
I really only got through the periodicals mentioned above. I plan to go back later and read more.
Thanks again-
Ned Cook

jonathan rathbun
p.s. You realize that made him only 15 years old. Are you sure it was not his father who would have been about 41 (and was also named Jonathan)?

I notice on the grave site "Flowers" section you have entered that he fought at Bunker Hill. Can you tell me where you found this information and where I can get more Revolutionary War service information?

RE: David Lewis Rathburn
David, Pleased to hear from you. I do not know where Alcinda's stone is located, and do not know if she was descended from Indian. Can you say why you might wonder about that? Anita

Rathburn in Mound Hill Cemetery
I was in Mound Hill Cemetery today and looked around for Alcinda & David Rathburn. Unfortunately I could not find them either. There are many small stones that are unreadable. I did find a stone marked Rathburn. It appears to possibly be a base of a stone, but no other part of the stone can be located in the area. Next to this stone is a John W. (Pop) Rathbun (1888-1968). This Rathburn stone could be part of the stone you are interested in. I took a picture of the Rathburn base. If you would like it I would be happy to email it to you and you can decide what you want to do with it. Rick

RE: Thank you
Sorry, It is high up on the wall and I did not move the flowers. I will have to look at an angle and try to read the inscription next time I visit. Also, I went thru the Mausoleum twice and did not find Madeline there. Best Regards, Greg.

RE: David Lewis rathbun 1842-1928 Ames Ohio
No, I'm descendant from Thomas 2 and Joseph 2. My John 4 married his cousin Hannah Eldred who was descendant from Joseph 2. Gets confusing ! I believe your John 4 is buried up at escoheag, Rhode Island. I'll check that and send the link

RE: David Lewis rathbun 1842-1928 Ames Ohio
Sorry, I don't have more data; see the 11th Ohio Cavalry were out west most of the war. Note that your John 4 is a different guy than my John 4. This happens frequently. John is the primary name for usage especially in those days. You descend from John 2 (John 3, John 4, Edmund 5) I descend from Thomas 2, ( Samuel 3, John 4, John 5).

RE: Henry Riggs rathbone
Where is your family of Rathbones from?
Mine is originally from western North Carolina although my dad moved our immediate family to East Tennessee for his work when I was just a baby. I still have all kinds of family in NC though. There are LOTS of Rathbones in NC. Lol.
My grandfther's name was Amos Frank Rathbone from Haywood County, NC. His father (my great grandfather) was Lee Rathbone also from the same area.
I would love to be able to trace my roots back and see where we originate from. :)
Thank you for contacting me and it was very nice to meet you! :)

RE: Thanks for the pictures (Harley)
Sunset Hall is located beneath the chapel in what is referred to as the 'basement' - an extention of the original mausoleum. There are two other halls, a crypt room and two niche walls down there. And you're correct about the grounds being kept up nicely although the facilities do show their age (chapel and original mausoleum built in 1929). Its a small cemetery by today's standards (roughly 10 acres). But its peaceful, the staff are all warm, friendly and welcoming.
