Surnames: Faulhaber, Faulkner, Leone, Stockwell
I'm searching for information on g-grandfather Valentine Faulhaber. He lived in Brownhelm OH. He was a soldier in the Civil War. I'm also searching for information on my grandfather Louis Faulhaber who was Valentine's son. Louis' occupation was a commercial fisherman on Lake Erie. Louis was a widower with 3-4 grown children [Raleigh, Glenn and Seth] when he married my grandmother Edith Faulkner, also a widow with 2 children [Vivian and Arthur]. Edith's maiden name was Stockwell of Flemingsburg Kentucky. Together Louis and Edith had 7 children [Franklin, Raymond, William, Paul, Harold, Katherine and Virginia Leone].

We have a Valentin Faulhaber from Germany who would be my husband's ggggrandfather. I don't know if the name might have been passed on. Valetin was married to Eva Regina Metzger who had a Frank Faulhaber (b. 1845 in Baden). Frank married Apolonia Carrie Niebes. They came to Cleveland and had George E. Faulhaber who married Celia Zurlinden around 1898. Their son, Edwin F. Faulhaber is my husband's grandfather. He died around 1960. If this rings a bell, please reply!

Thank you. I need to pull out my stuff and fill that in. I have quite a bit of information on the Faulhaber's, so I need to sift through to find Appolonia. I appreciate your information. Feel free to email me, personally at udhoops@fuse.net.

Valentine was also my gggrandfather, by his daughter Mary. I did research for awhile, but haven't worked on it for a few years. My records show Valentine's parents as Franz and Anna Maria (Nun?) but I don't have any additional information on them. My records also show that he was married to Catherine O. Leimbach, d. 11/8/1873 in Vermilion, however I have hit a dead end with her. I know that prior to his death, Valentine was at the Old Soldiers and Sailors' Home in Erie or Huron Counties in Ohio. He is buried at St. Mary's Cemetery on Lake Ave, Elyria, Ohio. The headstone is very easy to find. I pulled up to the caretaker's building, which was closed, started to back out of the parking lot and looked over and saw the stone. Please let me know if you have found additional information

Responding to your request for any additional information that I may have found. When you went to see Valentine's headstone at St Marys did you notice the large monument headstone nearly next to his for Bernard Faulhaber? Bernard was the son of Lewis. Lewis and Valentine were living next to each other in the 1860 census. This was a short time after Valentine had immigrated. This would make me think that they were related in some way but I haven't made the connection yet. Did you also see the headstone for Valentine's 1st child Franz Christian at St Marys? I need to check with the cemetery office to see if Valentine's 1st wife is also buried there, as it would make sense. I found a family in 1850 census with father Andrew and daughters Catherine, Elizabeth and Caroline Laubach that may possibly be Valentine's 1st wife. Experience tells me that there are many misspellings on census' and other records. Plus there's the question? Was her name Caroline or Catherine, as different researchers can't seem to agree on the same name. The 1891 pension document I have, that Valentine completed in his own hand,- - Valentine wrote on the form that his 1st wife was Caroline and his 2nd wife was Margaret Hemmer, he also listed all of his living children with their birth dates. I know that you had told me that one of your relatives told you that Valentine was buried at Johnson's Island, and that his first wife died in child birth. Caroline died 6 months after her last child was born and you saw Valentine's headstone at St Marys, so family info cannot all be believed, as I've found out with my own family. Were you ever able to find any photos of Valentine or his two wives?

When Valentin Faulhaber's wife Eva Regina Metzger died, did Valentin then marry Maria Magdalena Nunn?

Did Valentin and Eva have a son named Lewis Faulhaber aka Franz Ludwig Faulhaber b. 1819 who immigrated to USA in 1851, and lived in Elyria, Ohio?
