Elizabeth Graber Schwalbach
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb., 1853
Saarland, Germany
Death: Dec. 13, 1914
Athens County
Ohio, USA

Elizabeth was the wife of Jacob Schwalbach, a coal miner. She and their seven children followed Jacob from Germany in 1894, settling first in Jacksonville, then Hollister, and finally Glouster, Ohio. They had two more children born in Ohio.

Elizabeth is said to have been of peasant extraction and so viewed unfavorably by Jacob's more "aristocratic" family in Germany. She never mastered the English language but was a good wife and mother who tended her garden and flowers.

The town "Schwalbach Band", with four family members, accompanied her to the cemetery after her funeral, on a very cold December day. They said it was an honor to do so.
