Today in Family History - 25 Oct

My 4th great-grandmother Tabitha Ford (Baldwin line) died on this day in 1865 in Montgomery County, Texas [1]. She was buried at Womack Cemetery in Montgomery County, Texas [1].

My 5th great-grandfather Jeremiah Coleman, Jr. (Erickson line) died on this day in 1777 in Morristown, New Jersey [2]. The location of his grave is not known. Jeremiah died of small pox in camp during the American Revolution. He is only one of two direct ancestors I know of that died while serving in the military.
