ROSE - 1905
R. JOHN - 1913
IDA M. & JAMES F
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.
