WORK IN PROGRESS Jan 2013

George Grabill owned a farm at "Turkey Knob," north of the Neff homestead. He is buried in the old Neff graveyard and his stone states that he was 75 at the time of his death. He was probable a brother to Barbara Grabill, wife of Jcob Neff and Mary, wife of Christian Neff, said to be Grabill. This and further discussion is found at: FROM THE RHINE TO THE SHENANDOAH, Vol. 2, by Daniel W. Bly, Gateway Press, Baltimore, MD 1996, pg(s) 143-144.

Family papers state Anna and her husband George Graybill are both buried in the "Old Neff Graveyard." Stones were not found during the 2003 survey and they are not buried in Cedar Grove Cem. Children's stones were found. Mennonite family.

Dr. John W. Wayland indexed a stone found in April 1929 as follows: B. E. Grebiel ____15 1828 with the notation "inscription very illegible."

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND:

Mennonite Encyclopedia:

Spelling variations: Krehbiel (Krehbill, Krebell, Kraybill, Krayenbuhl, Crayenbühl, Craybill, Grabill, Graybill) family

Krehbiel, a name that frequently occurs among the Mennonites of Germany and America, was derived from the original name Krayenbühl. The family stems from the parish of Grosshöchstetten at a place near Signau, in the canton of Bern, Switzerland. The first member of this family known to have been an Anabaptist was Hans Krähenbühl
from Signau who attended the Anabaptist disputation in the city of Bern in March 1538.
