Tombstone Tuesday: Intriguing names from the Necropolis: Ithamar Smuck
The name Ithamar has its origins in Hebrew; the Hebrew name אִיתָמָר (Itamar) meaning "palm island". This is the name of one of the sons of Aaron in the Old Testament of the Bible.
Ithamar and his wife Agnes married in 1906 and had 3 children. His wife was very 'long-lived'. Born 2 years before him in 1878, Agnes Mitchell survived her husband by 51 years.
