Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Hulda PARTEE

From Connie Rice:

"Woolery's first wife Hulda Partee died 9-20-1834(age 36). At an earlier date a group of people were having a picnic on the banks of the Tiffin river, or Bean Creek as it was known locally. She had laid down in the grass and said "that it was such a nice spot that she would like to be buried right there". When she died soon afterward she was buried in the exact spot. It was the first burial in Buck Cemetery, the oldest cemetery in what is now Springfield Twp, Williams Co, about 2 miles northwest of present day Evansport in Defiance Co.
