    • Obit: Herald of Truth , Vol. XXX, No. 3, February 1, 1893 - Page 53, 54, 55
      RINGENBERG - On the 31st of December, 1892, in Seward county, Nebraska, suddenly, Peter Ringenberg. He appeared as well as usual and was sitting on a chair beside the stove when, without warning, he fell from the chair. They laid him on a lounge near by, but he was dead a moment after. His age was 82 years, 5 months. Funeral services by Joseph Schlegel and Jacob Stauffer.



      Mar 2007: Just a quick F.Y.I.
       I am still working on obtaining substantial evidence but confident in saying that I believe the Peter Ringenberg who married Sybilla Garber, died in Seward County Nebraska in 1892, not in Gridley, Illinois.
       I wrote to the Seward County Genealogy Society. They could not find an obituary on Peter Ringenberg but he is buried in the Germantown Cemetery (now Garland Cemetery), Seward County, Nebraska. Peter was born in 1810 and died December 24, 1892 and buried next to his son, Joseph Ringenberg. They did have an obit for Joseph Ringenberg which mentioned my great-grandmother as a surviving sister. I also have my mother's Autograph Book in which some of the Ringenberger's from Seward County who were mentioned in Joseph's obit signed in 1932.
       I plan on locating a death certificate for Peter in order to complete my documentation. I located the farm in Fondulac Township, Tazewell County where the Ringenberg family lived.  Unfortunately, that site is now being used as a landfill.
