Tombstone Tuesday – Same Tombstone 30 Years Apart


Several years ago I scanned the slide collections of my parents and grandparents. I didn’t notice this one at the time. That’s me checking out the tombstone of my second great-grandparents, James and Barbara (Black) Cubbage at Rockdale Cemetery in Penn Township, Butler County, Pennsylvania. To the right is the tombstone of the daughters of James and Barbara: Sarah and Mary Ann Cubbage. I vaguely remember the trip to Pittsburgh, but don’t recall this visit to the cemetery.


Fast forward almost 30 years … I am back there on beautiful fall day with my father, brother and sister on a Cubbage family history road trip. I wish I could say that my interest in genealogy and my family history started way back when … but maybe the seed was planted on that trip out to Pennsylvania 40 years ago!
