Bio and Links
Bio Photo I could care less about the number of memorial that I create. Or that I manage.I am more concerned about recording the persons in the cemetery for all time in the internet where weather, vandalism, and time doesn't degrade a person after they have been laid to rest. I have seen many headstone worn to nothingness, broken by cowardly vandals who take "kicking a man when he's down " way too seriously! The dead in this case are known only to God, they truly become nothing more than another grain of sand!  I try to keep that from happening, as much as I am able. I freely transfer the memorial that I create, I am not stuck on 4th generation criteria. If you are related, you hold more ownership to that person than I! I just hate to have other people step on my toes to glorify their own numbers. It's the deceased that is important in establishing a memorial, not the creator of the memorial page.

Florence Roebel, Lindenwood
Florence is on the same lot as her husband Leonard Christian Roebel but does not have a stone.

Mr Sonner, I just posted a photo of a stone that I'm 99% sure is the one you requested. Cemetery notes say its broken and laying flat on the ground, and this one definitely is.

It's the only one I found that could even possibly be his, but if you like, I can delete it. Many markers here are really just rocks, not readable at all.

Gotta try!

Mabel Shaw, Lindenwood
Mabel does not have a tombstone. She is on P-18 with the other Shaws. She maybe in the back row on the right with David being to her left and Vernon being in front of that space. I have added a photo of the whole lot.

spelling Correction of last name
I have been photographing stones at Union Cemetery, Huntington County. There are five entries that are double because of spelling of last name. Feightner and Feighner. They are both last name families at Union but these are duplicates and should be listed only at Feightner.
Arthur M. Feightner #268437810 is correct, Feighner 101376823 is wrong spelling and thus a duplicate. Carice L. Feightner #26843764 and Feigner 101376892 same thing.
Lloyd W. Feightner 43648196 and Feighner 101376987.
Mary R. Feightner #26843799 and Feighner 101377100.
Nina L. Feightner #26843747 & Feighner 1041377172.
Thank you.

RE: Washington
My cousin says that unfortunately that was back in the 1980's - she had contacted many Gibler's around the country trying to do genealogy the old fashioned way - she was in her 60's then and also his dad has passed on who she had contacted, he does not even remember her name, he thinks maybe a slim chance to be able to find her home - her nearest family he believes is in Lebanon, Ohio. Looks like things get away from us as to substantiated facts as we don't start looking for them until we get older - time gets away.

A lady my cousin talked to in Lynchburg, Ohio, said the Sonner family and Gibler family were real close - and that she had evidence that one of them had fought with George Washington and was instrumental in winning an important battle - that they attacked a fort from the river side by resting their muskets on straw and floating across at night, then attacking in the early hours while they had all their forces at the other end of the fort, because they did not think anyone could attack over water - could of been his relative, think Gaddis family could of been a third family that was real close also, and it could of been one of their family members or one of ours - maybe Lewis Ludwig that was instrumental in that battle - will be interesting if we can find that fact out for sure.

RE: Richard Gibler
Well, looks like we're back door relatives. Small world after all. Have another relative John Gibler who married Barbara Anne Sonner in 1821. In some of the census reports it looked like the Giblers and Sonners were close by property owners in Highland, Ohio.

The Sonners had big families also during those years.
