"The Slocomb's of South Reading, Massachusetts"

They watch over me.
Rosillar Trask Slocomb

This little girl, Rosillar Trask Slocomb (died 7-12-1839 @ 4y 10m), got my attention many years ago while I was walking "Dutchess".
For some reason she is buried with the Parkers, some distance from her grand parents, uncles and aunts.
Rosillar Trask Slocomb is the daughter of Nathan Slocomb (son of James Sr.) and 1st wife Lydia Peters
The gravestones of Lydia Peters Slocomb and her daughter Elseyanna Slocomb are missing.

Three of the five children of Asa R. Slocomb and his wife, Betsey W. Leatherbee; Betsey W. Slocomb, Ebenezer Slocomb and John Slocomb

"They watch over me".
These past ten years at the air port have been.... challenging.

While sitting outside with "Magic" and later "my little Anna", reflecting on one of the latest challenges, an image of Sarah Slocombís gravestone appears in my inner thoughts. Well, when that happens, it's like the return of a sunny warm day in June occurring on a grey cold day which occurred on January 22, 2012. After which, my thoughts return to appreciating the joy of the present.

In return for Sarah's assistance I told her that I would bring her existing family gravestones together at one location.
I have also recorded all of her immediate family to the present time.
