Tombstone Tuesday ~ Benjamin & Ann (Dea) Rolston

Benjamin and Anna (Dea) Rolston are my 6th Great Grandparents on one of my Father's lines. Benjamin was born 4 Oct 1788 in Rockingham County, Virginia.  But old Ben moved around some. He went to Champaign County, Ohio from Virginia and then moved on to Hancock County, Ohio in 1837 and finally settled in Nemaha County, Nebraska where he died 10 Feb 1873.  Along the way he married Miss Anna Dea who was born on 2 May 1793 in Maryland and died on 12 Feb 1873 in Nebraska and shares Ben's tombstone in Karn Cemetery.  They had at least 9 children together, including my 5th Great Grandmother, Julia Ann Rolston born on 2 Feb 1810 in Virginia.
