Notes for Tobias Wilhelm Lemberger:
Neither of the two sons of William (Tobias Wilhelm) Lemberger ever, and as far as is known, had children. Therefore, this line effectively "daughters out" with
this generation. His daughter Elizabeth never married and had no children that are known of. That leaves Josephine and the other daughter (name as yet
unknown), who according to Elizabeth's will, married men named Vestal and Myers in some order. The will names five Myers and four Vestal nieces and

Death, Cambridge City (IN) Tribune, 5 September 1889:
Josephine Catharine Vestal died at the home of her mother, Mrs. William Lemberger, in Mt. Auburn, on Friday morning last. Two weeks ago she came from her
home in Little Rock, Arkansas, to visit her relations with the hope that a change of climate and a season of rest would prove beneficial to her health, but the
trip was too much for her delicate constitution and she was taken sick with fever the third day after she reached here and constantly grew worse until the end.
She was born in Philadelphia, Penn., January 3, 1839, and was therefore aged 50 years, 7 months, and 27 days. She was married to Joseph Vestal, November 6,
1856. To them were born two daughters and three sons, all of whom are living and grown to man and womanhood. In 1880 they left this place, their old
home for many years, to locate at Little Rock, Arkansas, where they have since lived. For many years she has been in feeble health, but patiently bore her
affliction, ever striving to do her part as a loving companion and true mother. She has been a member of the Methodist church for a long time, and was a true
Christian woman. Funeral services were conducted at the house on Sunday afternoon by Rev. Paschall. Her remains were followed to the cemetery by a large
number of friends, and were laid to rest by the side of her father in the Lutheran cemetery at East Germantown.
The floral offerings were beautiful and consisted of rare and choice flowers, some of which were from the house of Mr. Vestal at Little Rock, Arkansas. The
casket was ornamented with a cross of Mareschel Neil roses, a wreath in the center of which was a miniature sheaf, and a pillow with the word "REST" in
immortelles. The casket also bore on the silver plate the inscription "MOTHER."
Notes for Joseph W. Vestal:
From Andrew W. Young, History of Wayne County, Indiana [Cincinnati: Robert Clarke & Co., 1872], p. 253:
"The Flower and Plant Nursery in the west part of the town has been established and matured by Joseph W. Vestal, who, in 1855, commenced vegetable and
truck farming. In 1860, he commenced the green-house cultivation of flowers, and made about 300 suare feet of glass covering, to which he has annually
made additions, until he now covers nearly 10,000 feet with glass, and cultivates about 3,000 varieties. His plants are sold into nearly every state in the Union
east of the Rocky Mountains. His business during most of the year is the supplying of nurserymen, florists, and dealers with stock for retailing, or with new
plants from which to propagate stock. He also deals in sweet potato and other early plants. Plants and flowers are sold by retail to customers from several
townships of the county. Sales amount annually to about $8,000 to $10,000."

Notes for Caroline Louise Lemberger:
From Frank L. Myers, 40 Verde Way, Watsonville, CA 95076-5421, email CW4FLM@worldnet.att.net, in an email dated 28 October 2001:
"My great-great-grandmother was Caroline Lemberger (1842-1902) who married Gideon Linville Myers (1838-1886) in Wayne County on 26 January 1860.
Caroline and Gideon came to Hamilton County, Indiana after the Civil War and are buried in the Brethren Cemetery in Arcadia, Indiana. Caroline was the
daughter of William Lemberger (1806-1873) and his wife Catharine ???? (1811-1892). Caroline died on 3 December 1902 while visiting her sister, Elizabeth,
in Wayne County.
"I have visited the gravesites of Elizabeth, William and Catharine Lemberger in the Zion Lutheran Cemetery in East Germantown, Indiana (just east of
Cambridge City on US 40). Elizabeth's grave is very unique in that her casket is enclosed in a stone vault completely above the ground. It is the only one like
that in the cemetery. I have some nice pictures of her burial site as well as the headstones of William and Catharine. I have extra copies of these to share with
"I have some documentation on this family. I have death certificates for Caroline, Elizabeth and Catharine, a burial notice for William, an obituary and funeral
notice for Charles Lemberger (brother of Caroline & Elizabeth) and an obituary for Elizabeth. I also have an 1850 census of Cambridge City showing a John
Lemberger (age 26), his wife, Caroline (age 19) and a daughter, Susan (?) (age 8 months).
