Ruth Elliott was born in New Brunswick, Canada to John & Ann Elliott.  She married Abel Flewelling in 1856, and they had 8 children.  By 1864 the family immigrated to Port Huron, Michigan.  She died in 1903 and is buried in Lakeside Cemetery in Port Huron, Michigan.  Her resting place is marked, but the other 3 family members buried with her are unmarked.  (3rd great-grandmother)

This is one of the Flewelling resting places.  There are 8 people resting here, including Sarah Sharpe (Nehemiah’s wife) and 2 vacant spots.  The slabs have been washed cleaned, and it is unknown whose grave they marked or where.   This resting place is in Lakeside Cemetery in Port Huron, Michigan.  I felt a bit sad visiting there as it is so stark compared to the other resting places surrounding it.
