Tombstone Tuesday - Binns
Joseph Phinehas Binns, born 1831 England, died 1899. Son of Joseph and Elizabeth Binns.
Rebecca A. Buckles Binns, born 14 September 1839 St. Joseph Co, IN, died 1915. Daughter of John Buckles and Lavina Erwin Hughes.
Rebecca was probably related somehow to Thomas Newton Buckles. Thomas married Rachel Graham and with his brother-in-law, James Madison Graham, went to seek their fortunes in California, abandoning both their families. James was my 2nd great-grandfather. When he left his wife, Elizabeth Doughty was pregnant with my great-grandmother, Rose Graham Camfield. Her letters will appear here shortly.
Joseph and Rebecca Binns' son, Harry, married my great-aunt, Tamerson Carlisle.
