RE: Susan Laib Eichner # 100034198

Unfortunately, when I tried to contact my distant relative who is an expert on that side of the family, I heard back from her husband that she is dying of cancer and wouldn't be able to answer :(

So, I don't have any additional insights. The obit I have just has maiden name, husband and kids.

RE: Susan Laib Eichner # 100034198

I just remembered why I was interested in the Laib/Eichner family and why I thought they might be connected.

Susan (Laib) Eichner and John Eichner had a daughter Susan who married George Walters. George Walters father (Job Walters, Jr) and grandfather (Job Walters, Sr.) are buried in Section L, Plot 4. John and Isabella Laib and some of their children are buried in Section L, Plot 5. Circumstantial at best, but perhaps one more tiny piece of evidence in favor of Susan being related to John and Isabella Laib.

My interest in this connection stems from the fact that Job Walters, Sr. is my ggggg-grandfather. I was made aware of this through a FindAGrave user who is related to this family through Ellen (Slack) Walters, the wife of Job Walters, Jr. I will reach out to her to see if she knows anything about the Laib-Eichner connection.

RE: Susan Laib Eichner # 100034198

I found a death notice for Susan that indicates "(nee Laib)". That, of course, doesn't prove that she belonged to John and Isabella or that she was related to Frederick, but it's a start. Given how hard it was to find even one Laib family in the census, it seems like there is a good chance that she was part of that family. On the other hand, it's not clear then why she was not with her parents in the 1850 census.

Let me know if you need a copy of the death notice referred to above.

RE: Susan Laib Eichner # 100034198

I thought I had replied to this, but I just noticed that my reply never went through (I was sending from a hotel room while taking my daughter to college).

The short answer is no, I don't have any firm evidence linking Susan Eichner to the Laib family. It's been a few years since I did her memorial and I don't remember where that came from. I found some references on the web indicating that her maiden name is Laib, but nothing to substantiate it and nothing about siblings or parents.

In an effort to get to the bottom of this, I did find an 1850 census record for John and Caroline (aka Isabella) Laib (buried elsewhere at Loudon Park), but there is nothing about Susan (or Frederick) there. There are a number of possible explanations, but I don't have anything else to go on at present. Let me know if you need a copy of the census record in question.

RE: Catherine Chaussee, # 53161250

I don't have one right at hand but I can see if there isn't some place that I might get one. The historical society for the area or something like that maybe. I live in Indiana so I am kind of at the mercy of what I can find online to be able to contact people.

I appreciate all of your help though and if I can locate a plot map I will let you know.

Thank you again,
