You need to be careful not to add the photos of people as if they were photos of grave markers.
|Joe Nihen||Michael Fessler|
Here's a bio I compiled for Michael. I am researching the Civil War Vets in the Grand Army Cemetery where he is buried. The information was taken from public and web sources - it is as correct as the sources. I would appreciate any additions or corrections. Note his birth and death dates - please post them on his Memorial.
Thanks and best wishes,
MICHAEL FESSLER was born on February 17, 1834, in Manheim Township, Schuylkill County, to Andreas and Sarah Rebecca Dillman Fessler. The family was living in North Manheim Township in 1850 where Michael worked as a laborer. He married Caroline Anne Kleckner on October 2, 1858, and fathered seven children. The young couple was living with Michael's parents in North Manheim Township in 1860; Michael worked as a brakeman on the railroad. He mustered into the 151st Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, on November 3, 1862. Michael was wounded at Gettysburg on July 1, 1863, and mustered out with the Company on July 27, 1863. He applied for a pension on January 30, 1864. Michael was living in Rahn Township, Schuylkill County, in 1870, worked as a railroad engineer, and had real estate valued at $800 and a personal estate valued at $200. He was living in Lansford, Carbon County, in 1880 and worked as a railroad engineer for the Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company. Michael was killed in a railroad accident near Mauch Chunk, Carbon County, on October 16, 1883, and is buried in the Grand Army of the Republic Cemetery, Summit Hill. His widow applied for a pension on August 1, 1890.

I am Rev, Rick Stoneking. I try to do sites that others have tried and failed to get the information for as with your Ribblett member.
Your request was for:
b. 1872, d. 1960

What I have found is a family of four as follows:
A.G. Ribblett B 1871: D: 1960 Father Minor discrepancy
Ida May Ribblett B: 1878 D: 1942
Roscoe D. Ribblett B: 1902 D 1948
R. Annie Ribblett B: 1909 D: 1919
I feel confident that this is the Abraham of who you seek. If so, please write me and let me know if you agree and if you want all the grave stones and pictures showing their whereabouts in the cemetery let me know And I will get them to you.
Also, I would ask a favor. If you haven't had the wife and children's graves entered into Find-A-Grave as a request like you did Abraham, would you please do so. If you do, please note in the information box that you have been in contact with Rev. Rick Stoneking who has already located the graves and ask they be assigned to me. I will also see if I can note this in our notes.
It is very important that they each be listed for the sake of others who may also need them.
God Bless You and Yours,
Rev. Rick Stoneking

Good luck, Martha

Thanks for posting the Alice Carroll Creen obituary. Her 1901 marriage to John Creen can be found at https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/N386-B29
Her father's name is simply listed as Anthony, so I suspect she may not have provided her parents' names, although they are listed clearly on her death certificate.
She is my wife's great aunt, so we really appreciate this!
