HABER or HAVER family in Johnstown, Ohio
Posted by: Gary Plescher Date: January 15, 2002 at 11:42:25

I am trying to find out some information about my gr-grandmother.

Her name was Mary Catherine (HABER or HAVER) Drummelsmith.

According to her obituary in the Putnam County Sentinel, she was born March 15, 1891, in Johnstown, Ohio. I can only assume that Johnstown in Licking County is where she was born. She was put up for adoption sometime after her birth, as she was adopted through the Toledo Catholic Charities, In Toledo, Ohio. She was adopted by a Siebeneck family in Kalida, Ohio. She married my gr-grandfather, Fred Drummelsmith, in 1910. She passed away in May of 1969. Fred and Mary had 7 children. One of her daughters, Frances (married to Vincent HEDRICK), was my mother's mother.

My mother tells me that the Toledo Catholic Charities were not generous with information when my gr-grandmother started looking for her birth family. Mom recalls mention of several possible siblings, but beyond that, we have no information. I have not yet had the opportunity to search for a death certificate, or some other factual documentation.

I have seen some HAVER names listed on several Licking County genealogical resources, and wonder if they could be relatives to my gr-grandmother.

Any information or leads anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated. My email address is
