Elizabeth was the daughter of Isaac and Anna (Haldeman) Krieble. She was born on 3 April 1844 in Pennsylvania, possibly in Worcester Township, Montgomery County. She was the tenth of thirteen children. Within the next few years, the family moved to Montville in Medina County, Ohio. By 1860, the family moved again, this time settling in Owen County, Indiana. Elizabeth had a relationship with a man named James McCoy, whether as a married couple or not is unknown. Elizabeth gave birth to her daughter Nancy on 16 April 1866. Ten months later, Elizabeth became the second wife of Michael Schiele. Michael and Elizabeth were the parents of eight children: William, Sylvester, Doretta, Susan, Lovina, Nathan, Andrew and Charles. Michael died in 1897, leaving Elizabeth a widow for almost 25 years. They are buried together at Greenwell Cemetery, Harrison Township, Clay County, Indiana.

The above Elizabeth was your great grandmother.
So, my grandmother, mentioned in the letters, but of whom I have no memory.
And Lovina was Roscoe’s mother? Or am I mixed up?
Lovina was Roscoe’s mother. So Elizabeth (Krieble) Schiele was his grandmother.
