Birthday Wishes for cousin, Laura Tabeling ~

Jan. 29, 1900
Feb. 11, 1976
Saint Mary of the Woods Cemetery
Breckinridge Co., McQuady, Kentucky 


Remembering my 1st cousin, 2x removed. Laura was born on this day, the 29th of January, 1900, in Breckinridge Co., Kentucky, one-hundred thirteen years ago, today.

Little did I know in April of 2008, when we drove to Kentucky from California and found this wonderful cemetery and took this photo, that Laura was one of my cousins. I had just started doing my family history in 2008.

When I visited Saint Mary of the Woods cemetery, there were several TABELING grave sites and I was making sure I snapped photos of all their graves, not really knowing of our kinship, yet, if any. These photos have been tucked away on my computer since then.  Slowly, I am learning more and more of my Tabeling ancestors. Happy Birthday cousin, Laura ~

The Wedding Anniversary of Albert and Lillie ~

~ Happy Anniversary to my great-grandparents, Albert and Lillie Mae (née Pate) Tabeling  ~ 

Today, one hundred and eleven years ago, in 1902,  my paternal great-grandparents, Albert 'Fritz' Tabeling (1870~1919) and Lillie Mae Pate (1879~1919), were married in Breckinridge Co., Kentucky.

Albert and Lillie Mae had nine children, Oletha (1902~1970), Maggie (1903~1919), Josephine (1906~1962), my grandmother, Ines (1908~1983), Gladys Ollie (1910~1980), the twins, Morgan (1913~1913) and Mamie (1913~1913), Viola 'Bessie' (1915~2003) and Infant Tabeling (1919~1919).

It is believed that my great-grandfather, Albert and 16 year old Maggie, died during the 1918-1919 Pandemic Flu. According to my great-grandmother, Lillie Mae's death certificate, death was due to a miscarriage, complicated by the flu in 1919 . . . it is believed that both Infant and Lillie Mae were buried together . . . Albert and Lillie Mae, died only five days apart from each other, leaving my grandmother, Ines, and her sisters, Oletha, Gladys, Viola and Josephine, orphaned.

According to the U.S. 1920 Census for Breckinridge Co., Kentucky, my grandmother, Ines and her sister, Gladys, were taken in by the Laslie Family on Hartford Rd. in Cloverport, KY.  I am still researching where Oletha, Viola and Josephine, ended up living. I do believe they resided with their aunt Emma Robinson née Tabeling . . . the search continues.

In 2009, my beautiful mom (1933~2010), myself, my husband and my granddaughter, all traveled to Louisville, Kentucky to meet and visit my aunt Ginnie for the first time. We then traveled for about two hours from her home to Cloverport, Kentucky, visiting the very peaceful, quaint and tucked away, Cloverport Cemetery, where Albert, Lillie Mae, Infant Tabeling, Mamie, Morgan, and Maggie, are buried together in one family plot. The Tabeling Family has never had a headstone or grave marker . . . one day, I would like to be able to have a marker made and placed on their grave.
