Frederick Abendschon
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 24, 1803, Germany
Death: Dec. 2, 1884
Washington County
Ohio, USA

There were two immigrant brothers, Jacob and Frederick, who came separately in the 1840s to Watertown/Union Township, Washington County and then moved to Harmar (now part of Marietta). Jacob was a master saddler, Frederick a farmer and brickyard owner.

The family spelling originally was Abendshon with an umlaut that doesn't show in typed versions. That then evolved to Abendschoen (Ab-en-Shane) to indicate in type the sound that the umlaut indicated. Second-generation descendants of Jacob changed their name to Ebinger while the descendants of Frederick retained Abendschoen. There also were varieties of spellings, including Ebinshane (possibly where Ebinger came from).

Frederick and Magdalena are buried near this Scott plot toward the Fort Harmar Drive hill part of this cemetery.

Frederick's brother Jacob is buried in Mound Cemetery, where a single black stone shows three generations at once and links the name changes.

This couple's daughter Johanna Abendschoen Strecker is buried in Oak Grove in Marietta. Their son Henry, who died as a young father, is buried about 12 miles out Ohio 676 toward Watertown.
