Tombstone Tuesday: Lee Cemetery, Hardin Co., Ohio Continues - Spracklin & Cook

The Lee Cemetery in Hardin County, Ohio is also home to several of the tombstones of Peter and Betty Spracklen's children.  I have shared their son the Rev. Alfred Spracklen's and his wife Abigail's stone in the last post.

Here we have the tombstone of Sylvanus and Anna (Spracklen) Cook.  Sylvanus is very easy to read but Anna's is very difficult.  There are also other tombstones of this family in Lee cemetery and here are two of the children Peter and George.  Sylvanus and Anna had six children that I know about: Nelson, John, Langfield, George James, Peter S and Mary P.A. Cook.  I have not spent a great deal of time on Anna's descendants so please by all means check what you find here.  Ann or Anna would be a third great grand aunt to me and sister of John Andrews Spracklin as well as Alfred.

The publications and Find A Grave are not complete transcriptions of this cemetery and it is very difficult to read the inscriptions because of the lighting and orientation of the stones.

Sylvanus Cook born Apr 14, 1807, died Nov. 9, 1892
Anna Spracklin Cook born 14 June 1805 and died 2 Oct. 1887

The color stone in the back is: Emma C. Cook 1867 to 1926 Mother & Willis A. Cook 1858 to 1935 Father.
A son of N & Suzanne.  The stone to the right reads Mother and I cannot make out the other one to its right?.
The stone on the left behind the flag is this stone:
may be Asher N. Cook,  Feb 1, 1871 s/o NW &S age 3y3m20d.
I will be posting more on these families in a few months when I write about Peter and Betty (Elizabeth) Spracklin and the siblings of John Andrews Spracklin.  I am currently posting about John and Lydia's Spracklin's children.  You will find more on these families on my blog:  Solomon Goss of Fearing Twp., In Ohio.  Go to the right side of this blog and you will find a link.

It would be interesting to obtain the Civil War files of these men, I have not done so at this time.

Susanna wife of Nelson was a Dildine and there are Dildines buried in this cemetery but I do not know her relationship to them.  This couple is very old so it is possible they are her parents, but I do not know that for sure?

Dildine, Allen June 23, 1898 age 92y 1d
and Mary June 20, 1877 age 72y2d w/o A.D.
There is a mention of William Dildine in the publication I have of this cemetery
Dildine, William Co K 180 Ohio Infantry
