Tombstone Tuesday - Sarah & Mary Cubbage
Sarah and Mary Ann Cubbage were my great-grand aunts, and the daughters of James Cubbage and Barbara Black. Sarah was born on this date, March 6th, in 1855 in Butler County, PA. She died on December 25, 1902 and was buried in Thorn Creek (Rockdale) Cemetery in Penn Township, Butler County, PA. Her sister, Mary, and her parents are buried alongside of her.
I found Sarah's obituary in the Cubbage Family Bible. She died on Christmas Day a week after a "severe fall". I don't believe she ever married, and she lived for many years with the Logan family.
This is a page from the Cubbage Family Bible which lists Sarah and Mary Ann's birth dates along with those of her siblings.
I don't know too much about Mary Ann yet. She died when she was 14 years old. This is the list of deaths from the Cubbage Family Bible, which include Mary Ann, her sister Nancy. Sarah's death is listed on a separate piece of paper that was in the Bible, and also lists their parents' death dates.
