Grace Ambrose
Hello Cathy,
Grace Ambrose was my great aunt. Her sister, Blanche Ambrose Smith was my father's mother. I remember visiting Aunt Grace in a nursing home in Clarion, PA, where I grew up. I thought that she was still there when she passed away, although what I'm finding on indicates that she passed away in Ligonier, Westmoreland County, PA.
Is she an ancestor of yours? If so, what was the relationship?
Thank you,
Marsha Smith Guthrie

RE: tombstones
No problem. They were tough ones. They were completely illegible until I scraped off all of the crap and fungus that was growing on it. Glad I could help!

Seneca Prosser
You said in one of your messages that his parents
were Jonathan and Keziah.
Do you know her maiden name?
Any chance you know when she was born or passed?
I'd doing research for my sister in law.

Luke Jaco
Luke Jaco died in March of 1868 in Pettis County, Missouri. I have copies of letters from Benjamin F Jaco to his sister, Emeretta Tucker Reddehaus, telling her when their father died. Benjamin and Emeretta were both the illegitimate children of Luke Jaco and Susannah Tucker. Luke Jaco's body was supposedly sent back to Ritchie County for burial. This is where his sister (Elizabeth Jaco Terry) and mother (Sarah Spence Mott Jaco) are buried.

Luke Jaco
Luke Jaco died in March of 1868 in Missouri. I have copies of letters from Luke's son (Benjamin F Jaco) to his sister (Emeretta Tucker Reddehase) telling her when their father died. Supposedly, Luke's body was sent back to West Virginia to be buried beside his mother, Sarah Spence Mott Jaco.

Benjamin and Emeretta were the illegitimate children of Luke Jaco and Susan Tucker. Luke was married to Elizabeth Prunty at the time of their births.

In 1846 the Overseer of the Poor in Doddridge County, WV sued Luke Jaco on behalf of Susan Tucker. Court documents prove the Luke Jaco was the father of both Benjamin and Emeretta. Luke never had any children with his wife, Elizabeth Prunty. Maybe this is why he chose to have his son live with them.

Benjamin was in a Soldier's Home in Kansas when he wrote these letters to his sister. Emeretta was living in Bluemont, Marion County, WV. Susan Tucker was their mother. From what I can tell, Luke raised Benjamin and Susan raised Emeretta.

I have a copy of tax records that list Luke Jaco as owning several tracts of land in Doddridge County from 1845 to 1867. On the 1868 tax list, the entry says 'Luke Jaco Estate'. I think this proves that he really did die in 1868.

I also know that Luke Jaco still had ties to Doddridge County at the time of his death. I have a letter from a seamstress living in Doddridge County stating that she was 'working on janes for Jaco' in 1867. Luke was the only Jaco that ever lived in this area.
