Enders Family Info

I am a family member of the Enders line. I recently saw the Enders Family book that was published. I have some updated information on my family line to add to it. Are you the right person to provide that information?

Looked @ Willis' father's link, guess his name was "Carvin" after all. However, I also looked at a family tree on Ancestry and noticed that they had his name listed as "Carvin Cooper Lebo"???

Just thought I would mention it.

Re: Willis Lebo

It also appears that Willis' father's name is "Garvin" rather than "Carvin".

Hi Russ,

Found Willis & Verna Lebo's marriage
License on Ancestry, and added a copy to her memorial. Her parents, Clinton & Katie Rowe are also buried in that cemetery, and are also your memorials.

Kathy 😊

RE: William Messner
I apologize. 8 Feb 1878 is indeed the correct death date.

Contributor doklanbeh at this page on William Messner:, which includes a link to the newspaper report of his death:

Here's my transcription:

Chester Daily Times, Chester (Delaware) Pennsylvania, Saturday, February 9, 1878, page 1, column 4

An unusual number of accidents ocurred [sic]
in the mining regions yesterday [Friday, February 8, 1878]. An explo-
sion at Plank Ridge colliery burned three
brothers, Theodore, Henry, and Isaac Isen-
bauer, the latter seriously.

William Messner
was instantly killed at No. 4 Gangway, Short
Mountain Slope, near Lykins, [Lykens] by a fall of
[8 Feb 1878, Short Mountain Slope Colliery, near Lykens, Dauphin, Pennsylvania]

At the Continental colliery, Centralia,
Brian Kilker was crushed beneath a mass of
falling coal and seriously injured, and at
Potts' colliery, Locustdale, Daniel Lletwil-
ler fell from a high trestle work and was
badly hurt.
- - -
His age at death from his headstone:
AGED 30 YRS. 10 MO. 10 D, then calculates to a birth date of Monday, March 29, 1847.

Sorry for my wrong reading of the headstone!
