Nettie Rose Dashback Dasbach

Birth: May 29, 1887
Adams County
Illinois, USA
Death: Jul. 5, 1965
Genesee County
Michigan, USA

Nettie Rose Dasbach was born 29 May 1887 in Quincy, Adams county, Illinois. Her parents were Reinhold John Dasbach, a tinsmith; and Louisa May (Obert) Dasbach. On Nettie's birth certificate, the name Estella is crossed out, and the name Nettie Rose written in. Nettie was the second of two children to this couple; Nettie had an older sister, Lulu May Dasbach.

Tragically, Nettie's father Reinhold died when the children were very young. Louisa went on to remarry, to Thomas Henry Cosby, a plumber at E. Best in Quincy, Illinois.

In 1907, Nettie Rose Dasbach wed John Wesley Ingersoll of Quincy Illinois. Their wedding was also in Quincy, Illinois.

John and Nettie Ingersoll had several children: Clarence Wesley, Thomas Henry (who died at age only four months), Robert Lee, Carl Delbert, Lois Genevieve, Albert Lester, Wilbur, Gladys, and Harold Glenn Ingersoll.

John and Nettie raised their family at the height of the Great Depression. John died in 1937 of pneumonia. The children all tried to help out at home with any jobs they could find.

Nettie remained a widow until at least 1943. She later wed her first cousin, Edward Dasbach Jr. Eddie, as he was known, and Nettie lived in Flint, Michigan, where Eddie worked in the Chevrolet factory. Eddie and Nettie had no children together. Eddie outlived Nettie and is buried in a military cemetery in Illinois, the state of his birth. Edward Dasbach Jr. was a World War I veteran.

Nettie Rose Dasbach passed away in Hurley hospital in Flint, Michigan, 5 July 1965, while in a diabetic coma.

NB: Her death certificate says her father's name was Leonard Dasbach. There was no such person. His name was Reinhold John Dasbach. Since she never knew him (she was too young when he died), it's possible that she did not speak of him often, and thus no one remembered his name correctly. Nettie's mother's name, Louisa Obert, was correctly recorded.

Further note: The older members of her father's family, including her father, signed their surname Dasbach; Henry C. Dasbach's tinsmith shop spelled his name Dasbach in the ads. So it was also spelled in books his biography appeared in. Nettie herself signed her surname Dashback on her first marriage certificate. According to Nettie's daughter Gladys, the surname was pronounced DAZZ back. One can surmise reasons for the different spellings, but in the end, one must make one's own interpretation of the documents available.
