My ancestress Susanna Ging(e)ry is believe to have been a sister of Sarah Gingery Kile. Here is her obit:

[front page, canter of the newspaper near the top:]
Susanna Gingry was born in Lancaster County, Penn., May 14, 1821, and died at her home in Moline, March 12, 1899. She moved to the state of Ohio when quite young and there married Joseph Frank, Oct., 1835. In 1852 they came to Michigan and were among the earliest settlers in Allegan County. She was the mother of twelve children, five of whom are still living. In 1885 she was left a widow and afterward married Ransom McIntyre who survives her. The funeral was held from the M.E. church and was attended by many relatives and friends. The services were conducted by her pastor, Rev. C.W. Marshall, assisted by Rev. A. D. Whaley of the Congregational church.
[My great grandmother, Esther “Ettie” Marie (Emmons) Bisbee, was about her closest relative then living, and Susanna was her grandmother, and often came over to visit. The Bisbees were members of the Congregational church, which may have been why a minister of that church assisted at the funeral.]
