Mabel Florence Eckman, my husband’s grandmother, passed away On This Day in 1975. She is buried at the
Greenmount Cemetery in .
She is buried with her husband, John Charles Eckman. Philadelphia
Their stone reads:
John C. 1885 – 1950
Mabel F. 1888 - 1975
Mabel was born 23 July 1888 in New Providence,
to Aldus and Emma Miller Eckman.
Before meeting John Eckman (very distant cousins), she was married to John
Anderson. She married him in 1909. I am told – though I have no documentation
to prove or disprove – that it was an abusive relationship. That first marriage
ended in divorce on 23 June 1923. She married John Charles Eckman, a Lancaster County native, on 7 January 1924. He
preceded her in death. Lancaster City
Tombstone Tuesday is a genealogical prompt of GeneaBloggers.
