Tombstone Tuesday–Thomas & Susannah John

John, grave maker 1

This weeks Tombstone Tuesday is for Thomas David John and Susannah Rowe. They are our 2nd Great Grandparents. This is how they fit into our ancestor line:

They are the parents of Selina Ann (John) Canter, our great grandmother

The Grandparents of Mary Elizabeth Jane (Canter) Shaw, our grandmother

Thomas and Susanna are immigrant ancestors having come to the United States from Wales in 1910 where they joined Susannah’s parents in Scranton, Pa.

Thomas died of Bronchitis and Susannah’s death is attributed to drowning by suicide. Her son, Thomas William died 2 years earlier (1913) and reports say that she never recovered from his death and suffered from extreme depression.

Thomas’s find-a-grave memorial can be found here. Susannah’s find-a-grave memorial can be found here.

Also buried alongside them is their son, David Thomas John, his find-a-grave memorial can be found here.

NOTE: The Tombstone date of Thomas’s Birth is wrong, he was actually born in 1859.

Thanks for stopping by and keep diggin’ for that family.
