Is there a way to contact your cousin? Martha and her family lived near Johnstown. I have tried to find her death cert. on the Ohio death reg. but so far no luck.
I'm hoping to check the courthouse in Newark soon.
Thanks for your help

I have a photo of Martha & Benjamin's gravestone if anyone needs it. They're buried in the Tullar Cemetery which is near Johnstown, Licking Co., OH. It's on US 62 between Johnstown and New Albany.

Their son Howard Ellsworth Fowler married Elizabeth Thompson, a sister of my grandmother, Anna Cecelia Thompson. Their parents were David Hall Thompson and Mary Magdalina Kraus. David and Mary are buried in Greenlawn Cemetery in Columbus, OH.

A number of other of the Fowlers are buried in Tullar Cemetery. I was a bit shocked when I first went to that little cemetery to shoot pictures of the graves of William and Delilia Miller, my 3ggrandparents on my mother's side, and found relations from my father's side (Anna Cecelia Thompson married Carl Frederick Dardinger, Sr.) of the family. It turns out that Benjamin was living next door to Washington Miller b 1875 in 1900 and Washington was a ggrandchild of William and Delilia. So he must have connected the Fowlers up to someone in the family who had grave plots available in Tullar. Otherwise I suspect it had been closed to selling new plots for ages. I do know of some relatives who moved west who might have been sources for gravesites.

Never heard of such a story. Tell me more.

BTW, I've made contact with a Larry Reichle who's a ggrandson of Benjamin and Martha. I didn't ask if knows about this story or not but I will.

I'll send a copy of the gravestone photo to your e-mail address. Larry did explain why there are Fowlers in the Tullar Cemetery, however. It seems they have burial rights from a gggranmother a PRIEST, I assume this is through Martha Jakeway's mother, Emma Williamson.

Does this refer to the John Jakeway who married possibly Emma Williamson and later Lucinda Williamson. Which family did the Williamson also in prison belong to. This is great. My line is from Joseph Annin Williamson to Jackson Williamson- Jackson was brother of Lucinda and Emma.
