Tombstone Tuesday: William Aldus Eckman


William Aldus Eckman (1871-1950) is buried at the New Providence Mennonite Cemetery in New Providence, Lancaster County. He is buried with his wife, Annie E. Stively (1869-1911) and their infant son Horace W. Eckman (1907-1908). 

William was born on 20 April 1871, the son of Aldus John Eckman and his first wife Amelia Kunkle. He died in September 1950.  I know little of Anna Elizabeth. Horace Whitman Eckman was born on 23 March 1907 and sadly died the following year. 

William and Anna had five children: Elizabeth A.; Horace Whitman; John Frederick; Martha; and William Edward.
 
I have looked for William for some time. His father, Aldus, is my husband's great grandfather. William had one brother (in addition obviously to the step siblings from Aldus' second marriage) Ulysses, who is buried over at Zion UCC also in New Providence, with their mother Amelia Kunkle Eckman.
