Notes for REBEKAH COULSON:
Birth date from Hattie Coulson bible notes, Rebekah born after Robert Coulson whose date is clearly October 9, 1861. Rebekah's entry says, "Rebekah Coulson born May" clearly, but the entry "21" looks to be entered at a different time and in different handwriting. The 1861 note is Pearl or Hattie's in blue ink on the copy (as is the 60 noted beside Robert). I used 1863 as the date for logic sake until I can find additional supporting information.
Pearl Larson's notes for Rebekah's birthdate say "I have the 19th" and "Nov 19". Since there are only 7 mos between Robert & Rebekah, the date may be questionable. another note says May 19, 1861.
Farmed 1/2 Mile west of Tom. After Becky's husband passed away, brother Charles farmed her land.
"Came from South Carleton, England in 1874, she was 13 years old."
They farmed for a living. Lost a baby boy named Elmer W. Due to a number of heart attacks, lived with her daughter, Myrtie & husband Art. (bef 1978)- Vernon still lives at home, but has retired from farming and one of Wienk sons (Arnold) farm it. Vernon moved into Lake Preston 1978.
"All buried in LP cemetery"
After Becky's husband died, she moved in with her daughter, Myrtie and lived there until her death. She was an active woman in church and helped when needed in the neighborhood. Nearly 95 years old when she passed away.
