Bio Photo Most of the people I have entered into Find A Grave are not my relatives nor did I know them. If you would like any of the memorials I have created let me know and I'll probably transfer them to you if they aren't my relatives.

Nora Goehring Riebschlaeger

I checked with Betty Plant who adminsters the Runge Cemetery. Her reply -"Eugene, I found her. She is buried in the Runge City Cemetery under the last name of Ripps. Riebschlaeger was legally changed to Ripps."

Thank you ,
Betty Plant
Runge Public Library, Director

Nora Ripps has a memorial - #48636582.

Very confusing but the memorial for Nora Riebschlaeger is a duplicate and should be deleted.

RE: George Divelbiss
You are right! -- I was influenced by the text of the transcription and took the faint "Penn" for Tenn as the transcriber had. Thanks for directing my old eyes to take a second look.

John Green
Let me add that Wesley's birthdate was inaccurate in the 1880 census. He was born in 1843 in Liberty, Republic of Texas. He died in 1900 in Navarro County and no grave has been found. The information I have is from Amanda's application for widow's benefits from Wesley's service in the confederate army during the civil war.
