Tombstone Tuesday-Abigail Betsey Grantier Coolbaugh

Yesterday I completed a post about my 3X Great-Grandmother Abigail Betsey Grantier Coolbaugh. ( see post by same name)  In the late 1990s I was fortunate enough to find the cemetery where she is buried beside her husband Marvin Milton Coolbaugh.  They are buried in the Cemetery in Monroeton Cemetery, Monroeton, Bradford County, Pennsylvania.

Abigail Betsey
wife of
M. M. Coolbaugh
Died April 4, 1912
Aged 89 YRS.
“When shall we all meet again?
When shall we all meet again?
Oft shall glowing hope expire,
Oft shall wearied love retire,
Oft shall death and sorrow reign,
Ere we all shall meet again.”
The verse is from the poem -

‘When shall we three meet again?’ 

Sometimes referred to as ‘Parting Song’ in Hymnals of the time.

If you have any corrections or additions or stories to share I look forward to hearing them.
Enjoy the journey,
