I don't have proof that Rebecca is buried here with her first husband Zebedee Stockstill, but I believe she is. Her second husband Thomas D. Trimble is not far away at the Pennsboro Cemetery.

Rebecca is a daughter of Absolem (abt 1790-1875) and Sarah Bobbitt (1806-1862) Williams, both born in Virginia. The Williams family settled two miles northwest of Mt. Vernon, Missouri in 1841.

Rebecca married Zebedee Stockstill August 8, 1847 in Lawrence County, Missouri. They had five children together. Zebedee was killed by rebel bushwackers while working in his fields during the Civil War.

The 1870 Mt Vernon TS, Lawrence County, MO Census lists Rebecca "Stogsdill," 40, farmer, $1,000 personal estate, born in Virginia, with the following children at home: William D, 18, Vena, 13; Zebedee, 11; and Jefferson D, 9. All of the children were born in Missouri. Also listed living with the family is her mother-in-law Elizabeth Stockstill, 78, born in Kentucky. Elizabeth is blind.

After ten years as a widow, Rebecca married her future son-in-law, George Washingon Trimble's, widower father Thomas Dudley Trimble on November 25, 1873. Rebecca and Thomas were married almost 26 years before Thomas died in 1899.

In the 1900 South TS, Dade County, MO Census Rebecca Trimble is age 63, born July, 1833, in Virginia and living alone. In 1910 she is living in Spring River TS, Lawrence County, MO, with daughter Susan and husband Thomas B Carey. Her age is listed as 75.
