  • Notes 
    • The Garber family owned and ran a mill (see map at http://www.tcghs.org/images/mp1857MRLG.jpg)

      Grandson Peter Schrock (1895-1950) remembered his grandmother as a large woman, rather quiet and solemn, but his memories were vague since he was only seven years old when his grandmother died in 1902. Some who knew Grandma Nancy say she was a very good cook.

      Walter Ropp comments in his writings that Nancy loved beautiful things in nature like the sunsets, etc. [11]
