Tombstone Tuesday: Quincy and Susan Darling

J. Quincy and Susan (Wilson) Darling
Glen Cove Cemetry, Knightstown, Indiana
John Quincy Darling was the son of Samuel and Beulah (Smith) Darling, my maternal great, great grandparents. Quincy married Susan A. Wilson on April 1, 1896 in Rush Co., Indiana. Susan was the daughter of John J. and Margaret (Sloan) Wilson. 

While their marriage was the first for Quincy, it was Susan's third marriage and the only one that did not end in divorce. She was first married to Jasper N. Kirkpatrick in 1877 with whom she had a daughter, Leila N. Kirkpatrick. Susan's second marriage was to Henry Theodore Schobert in 1885 with whom she had two sons, John William Schobert and Charles Oscar Schobert (Mayor of Hammond, Indiana 1930-1935).

Quincy and Susan were married 45 years before Susan died. They had no children together. Both are buried in Glen Cove Cemetery in Knightstown, Henry Co., Indiana.



  1. Lots of my collateral Leisure line are buried at Glen Cove and we had Kirkpatricts marry in as well.
    I enjoyed your post.

    1. There is another collateral Kirkpatrick line from Rush Co. that connects to my Cook lineage. Nancy Jane Kirkpatrick married Allison Cook. Her father was Joseph Rankin Kirkpatrick. One of these days I'm going to take the time to do a transcription of Nancy's extremely lengthy obit, LOL!
