Tombstone Tuesday: Mabel Florence Eckman

Mabel Florence Eckman, my husband’s grandmother, passed away On This Day in 1975. She is buried at the Greenmount Cemetery in Philadelphia. She is buried with her husband, John Charles Eckman.

Their stone reads:


John C. 1885 – 1950

Mabel F. 1888 - 1975

Mabel was born 23 July 1888 in New Providence, Lancaster County 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 City native, on 7 January 1924. He preceded her in death.
