  Birth Notes:

May have been born about 1794 or earlier. Rosemary Benson has b. 1797. Her gravestone reads "AE 59 yrs."

Poss. b. Cornwall, Ontario or Gananoque (Leeds and Grenville Co.), Ontario.

  Death Notes:

My interpretation of the date on her gravestone is d. 18 Apr 1858. kjf 10/26/11

Site http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~poaps/Notices.htm has
"Margaret, wife of John F. Poapst d. 18 Apr 1853, age 59 years
Buried at Poapst Homestead. (Taken from a gravestone)" The year 1853 is probably incorrect.

  Burial Notes:

Gravestone reads:
Mary Poapst - d. Jan. 17, 1849 - AE 22 yrs. - daughter of John F. & Margaret Poapst
Curtis Poapst - b. July 21, 1843 - d. Feb. 28, 1885
John F. Poapst - died Oct 2, 1887 - AE 72 yrs
his wife
Margaret - died April 18, 1858 - AE 59 yrs

The stone was originally in the back of the Poapst family homestead, where the bodies remain. The stone was brought to Willis United Cemetery at some time before April 2002.
