Birth: Feb., 1821
Marshallville
Wayne County
Ohio, USA
Death: Feb. 1, 1905
Congress
Wayne County
Ohio, USA

Elizabeth (Grable) Palmer was born Feb. 1821 in likely Baughman Twp., where her parents are found in 1820 US Census the year before her birth. NOTE: There's no option for Baughman Twp. on Find A Grave, and listed the nearest town of Marshallville.

She's the only daughter of Jacob Grable (b. 1783, prob. Fallowfield Twp., Washington Co., PA USA; d. 14 Jul 1848 in Wooster, Wayne, OH USA) and Elizabeth Bruner/Brunner (b. abt. 1780, prob. Fayette Co., PA; d. 31 Jul 1876 in Summit County, OH USA). I am still researching this family and will update this memorial as more information is uncovered about Elizabeth's roots.

Elizabeth's siblings:

1-Joel Grable (18181889) m. 1st Elizabeth Beals (1 ch.), m. 2nd Sarah Delilah Seal (3 ch.)

2-Archibald Volney Grable (18241852) m. Anne L. Cheney, served in Mexican War and died on their 1st anniversary; no ch.

And possibly: John Grable, Paul Grable (each born between 1819-1824?). Still researching.

On 12 Jan 1842, Elizabeth married George Palmer in Wayne Co., OH. He must have been a widower, as there is a son (Jacob), b. 1836 with them in 1850 US Census (and listed in some family records). George & Elizabeth's children (including Jacob) are:

1-Jacob Palmer (18361905) m. Martha M. Stickler (6 ch.)
2-George Dallas Palmer (18441886) m. Nancy Ann Rice (7 ch.)
3-Isaiah (Isaih) Palmer (18461930) m. Elizabeth M "Libbie" Strayer (8 ch.)
4-Volney (Valentine) Palmer (18481948) m. Sarah Jane Smith (1 ch.) Volney lived to be 100 and 1 month.
5-Ellenor "Ellen" Palmer (betw. 1850-1854; d. 1858)
6-Rose Anna Palmer (18551860)
7-Sarah Ann Palmer (18561932) m. Michael Keyser (1 ch.)
8-Susannah Palmer (1859 )
9-Infant Girl Palmer (18601860)

Still researching George's death, but it appears he may have died in 1885 in Vermillion, Ashland Co., OH.
