Stark County Infirmary

Faber was born in 1899 Stark County, Ohio to Ivy and Elta Combs Druckenbrod. Faber’s dad (Fianna’s brother) Ivy was Superintendent of the Stark Infirmary. The family lived at the infirmary, a huge stone mansion, when Faber and his brother were kids. Ivy died in 1916 and his widow Elta began traveling. In 1920 she sailed from Key West, Florida to Cuba. In 1924 she sailed from New York to Cherbourg, France. Elta and Faber made this European trip together with Faber staying longer in Europe, photos of the ship Elta sailed on.


In 1939 Elta, with her son Faber and his fiance Grace, visited Greene, Iowa. They spent a weekend with Lola (Fianna’s daughter) and her husband William E Miller. It’s a pretty strong probability that Lola and William’s son Faber visited with his Ohio relatives and 2nd cousin namesake on Friday night September 29, accompanied by his wife Gladys Cable Miller.
