Pask Family Memorials in Valleau Cemetery New Jersey

This information relates to the main Lincolnshire tree - descendants of Johannis [John] and Elizabeth Pask née Archer, who lived in Lincolnshire.

Recently 'Tucker' a volunteer with Find a Grave, kindly photographed a Pask Memorial at Valleau Cemetery, Ridgewood, Bergen County, New Jersey, USA.

The Pask Memorial Inscription shows:
Durant W. (1889-1957)
Johanna W. (1900-1989)
Marion M.      (1923-2011)
Lawrence H. (1925-2012)
Durant Watson Pask was the son of Charles Pask and Filomela Gabrielli who immigrated to America in 1888. Charles was born in 1856 in Fulbeck, Lincolnshire, and was the 9th great-grandson of John Pask, (c1520-1591), the main Lincolnshire progenitor, who lived in Washingborough.

Marion and Lawrence were Durant, and his wife Johanna's son, and daughter-in-law.

In addition, Tucker noted that on the reverse of the memorial, there was a Tevis Memorial.

The inscription shows:
Yvonne Le H. 1898-1954
Ruth J. 1930-1990
Donald 1923-2001 Beloved Grandfather
Ruth J. Tevis née Pask was the daughter of Durant, and Johanna.

This information enabled us to do further research. The findings will be included in the next website update.
