  • Notes 
    • Thomas Benjamin Eareckson remarried, probably after the death of his first wife, to Lua G. Warren. They both appear on the 1920 Census in Newport News, VA, along with his step-daughter Celeste Warren.

      His VA death certificate lists his wife as Lucile Earickson. Oddly, his mother is listed as Caroline Winchester, who is actually his grandmother. His name is spelled Earickson--it is unclear if this was intentional.

      Sally Tucker Eareckson sold the farm which her husband had inherited on Kent Island from Benj. Winchester Eareckson in 1937 so that her children could complete their education. All of their children had grown up on that farm. Gerard E. Murray said that all of the daughters were estranged from their father.
      To find grave site, cross bridge near office. On right you will see (immediately!) a Magee Monument (large) with a Collitz stone (smaller) in front of it. Keep those two markers on your left and walk parallel to the water. Go quite a way and look for a big rough stone with "Bonn" on one side and "Eareckson" on the other.
