Faber J Druckenbrod 1st cousin 3x removed on RootsMagic tree.
Faber was born on February 23, 1899 in Stark County, Ohio to Ivy and Elta Combs Druckenbrod. Faber was the nephew of Fianna Druckenbrod, mother of Lola Miller. Lola and Faber were cousins.
Faber’s dad, 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 Elta 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. The photos are from their passport applications.
In 1939 Elta, Faber and Faber’s fiance Grace, visited Greene, Iowa. They spent a weekend with Lola Miller and her husband William E Miller. William and Lola had a son named Faber, it’s a pretty strong probability that Faber Miller with his wife Gladys Cable Miller, shared a dinner on Friday night September 29, 1939. Faber and Gladys named their first son Faber, too.
