My name is Carolyn Mason Buseman. Kudos to you on  your extensive web site.  I trace my ancestry, paternal side, to Towanda and the Mason-Humphrey connection.  My father, Eugene Humphrey Mason, was born in Towanda on October 24, 1897.  My ancestry  investigations, titled "Saints and Sinners". is on  On your Web site I found you have my Great Grandfather, Julius W Mason, born 1835, buried in Riverside Cemetery, new section, lot 21.  My information is that he died on December 19, 1882 at Fort Huachuca, Arizona and is buried in the Post Cemetery.  He was the Commander of the Fort at the time of his death.  Since this was during the Apache period  I am still trying to determine if he met with an Apache arrow or died of other causes.  I visited the grave site in 2002.  If you can clear up this mixed information it would be appreciated.

I have attached a picture of the 1860's JW Mason home in Towanda.  When I visited Towanda with my parents in 1949 we found the house had become an Elks Club.
