Family Events ~ March 21 - 27

March 21 ~ On this day in 1759, Anna SCHENK, possibly my 5x great-grandmother is born in Langnau, Bern, Switzerland.

Also on this day in 1913 my paternal grandmother, Lela Mable SAURER is born in Wayne County, Ohio.

Finally, this day is also marked by the death, in 1966 of Enoch Melvin MOUSER who is the 2x great-grandfather of my nieces and nephew.

 March 22 ~ This day in 1900 is marked by the death,  of  Elizabeth RENNIE, my 3x great-grandmother.  She died and is buried in Inverurie, Scotland along with her daughter and son-in-law.  Although her name is not on the stone, she is buried here with them and I have posted a picture of the grave marker in a previous post.

March 23 ~ On this day in 1908, Elizabeth LOGAN, the great-grandmother of my nieces and nephew is born.  This picture of her on a trip to Egypt is one of the only picture I've seen of her.

 March 24 ~ On this day in 1863 my 2x great-grandfather, William EICKELBERG is born in what was then known as Duchy of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. Or, to practice my German, "Mein Ururgro├čvater, Wilhelm Eickelberg war in Mecklenberg geboren.  Als er zwei Jahren alt war, hat er nach Amerika mit seinen Eltern gekommen.  Das war im Jahren achtzehnhundert f├╝nfundsechzig (1865.)"


March 25 ~ On this day in 1824 my 3x great-grandfather, Jacob ZAUGG is born in Bern, Switzerland.

Also on this day in 1885, my great-grandmother, Nelle EICKELBERG is born in Carbon, Clay County, Indiana. She is the original "Random Relative" featured in my first blog post.


  1. I like the photos of your ancestors. I like the picture of William Eickelberg the best, has a movie star quality about him.

  2. Thanks Claudia!! I've always liked that picture myself - it's part of a family group shot. I'll have to post the full picture sometime. Pictures are my favorite part - I'm always a little sad if I have a week of "events" with no pictures.

  3. I bet that took a little time finding each one for the days sequences. Great job. Love the sweet little girl.
