John W. Fackender, one of our last veterans of the Civil War, a man who was long a resident of Monroe Township and was widely known throughout the county, passed over to the other world last Sunday evening, May 12, 1929, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Reed Gourley, of Pittsburgh.

He had been visiting another daughter, Mrs. Ethel Gumbert, of Vandergrift, for some time and up till one week prior to his demise, and then went to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Gourley. He had not been very well and thought the change would possibly help him. His illness did not abate and he was attacked by paralysis which was the door through which he passed to the eternal world.

John W. Fackender was born February 14, 1846 at Sligo, where he grew to young manhood. At that stage of his history the Civil War broke out in 1861, and at the age of 15 years Mr. Fackender enlisted in the army as a member of Co. K, l48th Reg. Pa. Res. Vol., and served during the entire time of the war. On one occasion was taken a prisoner and suffered six months in various prisons including Andersonville, Salisburg and Libby prisons, finally being exchanged and getting back into the service. He had a notable record as a soldier and rose by merit alone to the rank of First Sergeant.

All of his civil life Mr. Fackender followed fanning most of that part of his life being spent in Monroe township, near Williamsburg.

He was united in marriage with Miss Elizabeth Carson, of Clarion, who preceded him in death a number of years ago. He is survived by the following children: Mrs. Bertha Zirkle, San Diego, Calif.; Mrs. Ethel Gumbert, Vandergrift; Mrs. Mary Golden and William Fackender, Youngstown, Ohio, and Mrs. Elmira Gourley, Pittsburgh. Nine grandchildren also survive him.

The body of the deceased was brought to Clarion and taken to the Jenkins Funeral Home where services were conducted by Rev. Dr. John Ballentine on Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 with full military honors being conferred upon the deceased by Craig E. Fleming Post, American Legion.

They were the parents of ten children, all born at their farm, which was located in section 14, Onekama township, on present-day 11 Mile Road.

Lucy Hilliard died 17 July 1880 at the age of 38, the cause being "cancer in the stomach", which left Stephen with a household of 8 children, ranging in age from 17 (Henry), down 9 months Lula - also called "Lizzie.

The following is from an entry in a diary kept by Eleanor (Hilliard) Rogers, Stephen's niece: "July 6, 1892 - Steven Hilliard dyed today at one o'clock at his mother's house, leaving 8 children. Arners and us all went to the funeral. Nels takes Katie and Charley to raise. Katie is 11 years, Charley 9 years."

A second entry as Faney F. McCoy gives her age at death as 17y3m21d and death from consumption.

Concerning her birth date: Death record of Jean McCoy, Fannie's sister gives Jean's birth as July 10, 1881. The 1900 census gives Jean's birth as May 1879. In the 1880 census Jean and her sister Fannie are shown as age 1. Fannie's age at death 9 Aug 1896 was given as 17years 3 months and 21 days which gives a calculated birth date of 19 April 1879. It appears the girls were twins. Jean could not have been born in 1881; she was already here in 1880 age 1 year and the census was taken June 9, 1880. Have used May 1879 as the most accurate for both girls"

HOSEY, James Newell (I6910)
45 I had made contact with a descendant of Cora Lewis, eldest child of John Henry and Phoebe Lewis. They tell me that John Henry lived with Cora and family in Cambria Co., I am assuming during his final years. His second wife, Cassie, had left him they say. John Henry Lewis died 2 June 1943 Nanty Glo, Cambria Co. Pa and is buried in Pike Brethren Church Cemetery, Mundys Corner, Cambria Co. which is about a mile south of Nanty Glo. But for some reason he doesn't have a stone or marker. Now I wonder, since his son Russell's obit says he was born in Cambria Co. in 1901, and John Henry was remarried to Cassie by 1910, (therefore Phoebe had died before 1910) if perhaps Phoebe is also buried in this cemetery and that is why they buried John Henry there? Will have to see if I can find out.
I was told that his daughter, Cora, died 16 Aug 1972 in Carlisle, Pa. for some reason. She was married to John Thomas Peterson who was born in Norway and he died 12 April 1951. Both are buried in Lloyd Cemetery, Ebensburg, Cambria Co., Pa. They had 3 children, Nellie b. 9 Feb 1904 d. 27 Oct 1976. She was married to Louis Snedden and he died 18 Feb 1965, William D. Peterson who lived in Youngstown, Ohio and Anna Peterson who lived in, I believe they said Detroit. Will check email again to make sure. I was sent two photos which I am attaching for you. The first is of John Henry Lewis with one of his great granddaughters. The second is of Cora and John Peterson. Hope they come through all right for you. This is all of the information I have gotten thus far. Should they share anymore I will pass it on to you.
Merry Christmas!
