Tombstone Tuesday: Lee Cemetery, Dudley Twp., Hardin Co., Ohio....More Spracklins

There are more Spracklen/lins buried in Lee Cemetery and they are descendants of Peter and Betty Spracklen.  I will post about Peter and Betty Spracklen in the near future on the blog:  Solomon Goss of Fearing Twp. in Ohio.  See the side of this blog for the link under my Blog List. 

There is a William Spracklen who died 17 March 1886, age 10m23d s/o Z&J. Not sure about William's lineage but I am guessing that he might be a son of Lucius Alfred Spracklin and Sarah but the initials do not match and I cannot decipher the tombstone.

Milinda Jane Simon died 4 January 1878 age 34y10m17d w/o H.L. Melinda/Milinda was a sister to George P. Spracklen and they were children of Rev. Alfred and Abigail Spracklen. Do not seem to have her tombstone probably because she was a Simon and I missed her.  It happens.

George P. Spracklen born 24 Dec 1837 and died 22 January 1898 GAR.  George's tombstone worries me for it is split on the side.  Also listed is Rechel M. (Rachel) who died 4 May, 1840. His wife.

Minnie T. Spracklen died 9/21/1878 age 6y7m23d d/o G&R. She had a nickname of Minnett, I believe.

Charles O. Spracklen died 17 Sept 1872 age 6y4m3d s/o GP&RM

You can see that the years are wearing on these older stones and it is difficult to read them. There are many more stones in this cemetery but I think I have pretty much captured the ones that are associated with the Spracklen/lins in Lee Cemetery, if not please leave a comment.

Parmelia (Pamela or other variation) Spracklen married on 24 June 1841 in Marion County, Ohio to Jacob Elias Myers.  This was Jacob's 2nd marriage and also Parmelia's 2nd marriage.  He had been married to Jane Walker who died 18 Sep 1839 in Marion Co., Ohio. She had been married to Richard Tamany. Parmelia is a daughter of Peter and Betty Spracklen and sister to John Andrews Spracklen.

ELIAS MYERS, (Montgomery Township) a retired farmer, born September 12, 1814, in Hampshire County, Va., is the son of Jacob and Elizabeth (Puckman) Myers who came to Licking County, Ohio, in 1816, remaining there ten years, when they moved to Franklin County, Ohio, and came to Marion County in 1829. They settled in Montgomery Township. Elizabeth, the wife, died May 12, 1829, and Jacob in 1856, in Missouri, aged seventy two years. The name of their second child is Jonathan. Having obtained a limited education, Elias Myers began when fourteen years of age to learn the tanner's trade, which he completed when twenty years old; that same year he commenced the tanning business for himself in Montgomery Township, Continuing in that avocation for twenty-five years. When a young man, he with his father, Jacob Myers, and Washington Armstrong, built the first mill, ground the first flour and sawed the first log in this township. La Rue was then a wilderness. Mr. M. married, September 18, 1836, Jane Walker, a daughter of James and Elizabeth Walker, natives of Delaware, and the parents of six children, four of whom still survive--John, Jane, Mary and Eliza Walker. Jane, the wife of Mr. Myers, died September 18, 1839, leaving one child, John, who also died aged twenty three years. Mr. Myers married again, June 24, 1841, Parmelia, the widow of Richard Tamany, and a daughter of Peter and Elizabeth Spracklen. This family worships at the United Brethren Church. Mr. Myers was a farmer for a number of years and in politics is a Republican.

Parmelia/Pamela's tombstone is sort of off by itself, where Jacob is buried, I do not know.
