Tombstone Tuesday: Robert B Still

Robert B Still is my 3rd great uncle. He is the son of George David Still and Sarah Bing Still, my 3rd great grandparents. He is buried, next to his wife Albina, at the Hephzibah Baptist Church Cemetery in East Fallowfield Township, Chester County.

His stone reads:

In Loving Memory
Robert B Still
Born Aug 15, 1823
Died Feb 16, 1903
Age 64 Years
At Rest

He was born in East Fallowfield Township. He married Albina Williams in 1874, probably in East Fallowfield Township. He owned and ran a farm in East Fallowfield Township. He and Albina raised two sons – George and Alban – in East Fallowfield Township. He died and was buried in East Fallowfield Township.

And yet, I know so little about him. He is but a ghost of East Fallowfield Township

Tombstone Tuesday is a genealogical prompt of GeneaBloggers.
