Tombstone Tuesday: Joseph Henry and Mary Wilson Dubbs

Joseph Henry Dubbs and his wife Mary Louisa Wilson Dubbs are buried in Woodward Hill Cemetery in Lancaster City. I took the photo one day last year simply because, being part Irish, the Celtic cross grabbed my attention.

Joseph Henry Dubbs was born 5 October 1838 and passed on 1 April 1910. Mary was born on 4 January 1843 and passed on 17 January 1921. They had four children.

On the stone, Joseph has an abbreviation after his name: D.D. L.L.D. The D.D. probably means Doctor of Divinity but I was unable to find L.L.D. He was, according to his Death Certificate and Census records, a clergyman and college professor at Franklin & Marshall College.

Joseph was born in North Whitehall Lehigh County to PA native Joseph S. Dubbs and NJ born Eleanor Lerch, according to his Death Certificate.
