Sentimental Sunday ~ Three Little Angels

ROSE - 1905
DOREEN 1909-1914
R. JOHN - 1913

This tombstone shows that the two infants and young daughter of this couple are buried together. 

Family records show the deaths of the first three children of this couple as 1905, 1913 and 1914. Today this would be an unthinkable tragedy for any family to have to deal with.

I have found a record that showed one "living" child who was born after these three children. Probably lived to age 70 and beyond. That would be a blessing.

UPDATE: I see that I missed the connection between Ida Maude ACHESON and her grandfather, John RUTHERFORD. Ida's maiden name was RUTHERFORD.  I posted about John RUTHERFORD on "Surname Saturday," 8 May 2010. Ida's father was Edward RUTHERFORD, born 1854, Proton Station, Proton Township, Grey County, Ontario. Her mother was Elizabeth LUDLOW.

HULL ~ Resources for Family Research

I've found the following sites helpful in my search for the HULL family who are among my ancestors.

"The Hull Family Association" is a non-profit organization with memberships available.

"The Hull Family in America" by Colonel C. H. Weygant is available to purchase online.

An extensive site is The History of Redding which includes a genealogy of the HULL family It states that the site is "not a business or organization." It is the work of one dedicated individual wishing to preserve and provide education for others interested.

These sites have provided very useful information and are well worth the visit.

Good luck in your continued research.

By the way, I've been enjoying "Who Do You Think You Are?" Have you?
