Dorcas GARDINER and brother Jabez GARDINER, Jr.

This the the reverse side of the gravestone for Jabez Champlin GARDINER and his first wife Eliza BICKNELL.

Dorcas is listed in the 1900 census as being widowed with one child now desceased.

In one record it says she married a man named GARDINER. All the census records I can find, list her living with her parents. One census lists a child Charles, age 1, and this may be her son?

Jabez , Jr. never married. This GARDINER family's work was in the woolen factory business
