Germans meet French! Margaret Gardner was born in 1843 probably Summit County, Ohio to French immigrants, John Michael Gardner and Elizabeth Neuyear. Margaret married George Whitman, son of Christian and Mary Radar Whitman. Margaret and George probably married about 1862 in Summit or Wayne County, Ohio. A marriage record has yet to have been found. A search is now being made to see if George served in the Civil War. Hopefully a pension file will be located for George to help solve this problem.
George and Margaret are buried together in St. Peter & Paul Catholic Cemetery, Doylestown, Wayne County, Ohio. George died of Dropsy of the Heart in 1907. Margaret died in 1915 of Paralysis due to Artius Sclerousis.
