Gerber, Clarence Eugene (I0072)
 
182 Eventually co-owner of Lohngrat in Gohl. The oldest document at Giebel is an exchange agreement between Michael Gerber (4) and Daniel Grimm of Giebelfeld dated 1742. It had to do with the exchange of land due to preferences for crop growing vs. shepherding in relation to the quality of the soil due to proximity of a river.

Inscription at a Spycher of Vorder-Giebel: "Michel Gerber und Anna Rothlisparger syn Husfrau haben dar Spycher lassen bauen im 1735 Jahr."

MICHAEL GERBER IS THE EARLIEST ANCESTOR THAT WE CAN IDENTIFY WITH A HIGH DEGREE OF CERTAINTY. IT IS HIGHLY LIKELY THAT MICHAEL GERBER AND ANNY GYSLER ARE MICHAEL'S PARENTS, BUT NO RECORDS HAVE YET BEEN DISCOVERED TO PROVE THIS. IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT MOST GENEALOGISTS FOLLOW THE RESEARCH DONE BY JULIUS BILLETER. HOWEVER, JULIUS'S RESEARCH SHOULD BE DISCOUNTED AS MANY ERRORS HAVE BEEN FOUND.

183 FANKHAUSER: TRUB. Fankhaus is the place name of a farm. The German verb fangen means to catch. This house is catched, that is to say surrounded by hills and forest, enclosed territory. - By Delbert Gratz



ORIGIN OF NAME - VERSION 2

Heinz Fankhauser from Burgdorf...

When fall comes, the farmers have to drive their animals down from the high pastures for the winter. There must have been some sort of stockade (or corrall) in Fankhaus Graben which pinned the cows and/or sheep and/or goats in until the various owners could sort out which belonged to whom. There must have been a house there for the fellow who maintained it.



ORIGIN OF NAME - VERSION 3

Contributed by Frieda Funkhouser Wilson - FUNKHOUSER A SWISS-AMERICAN GENEALOGY (1364-1978) Copyright 1978

...at the turn of the century the circulated story was that one of the Fankhauser ancestors "was an inspector of a prison or guard of prisoners. This story has been refuted. Cousin Hans Fankhauser says there are no jails or prisons in Trub for the one thing. Instead the name Fankhauser comes from the verb 'fangen' meaning 'to catch' (the bears). A 'fang' was a large pit for trapping the bears and other wild animals that threatened the crops and livestock of the families who lived in this valley in the Middle Ages. The trap tender lived in a 'Fanghus.' As a small community grew there, it took the name and the families there became Fankhausers."

184 Farmer at Giebel. He lived in the middle house (now Schürch). Milk farmer and builder of the Speicher at Lohngrat inscripted with the year 1767, the building date of the Speicher. Johannes 1729-1782 is the father of the Giebel-Glais (Niklaus), who purchased obern Habpach in 1801 and who was the ancestor of the Gerber lines of meats (at Grosshochstetten), cheese (at Thun), and Tscharnergut in Bern. Gerber, Johannes (I2525)

186 For many years, a single grave existed in a pasutre two or three miles southwest of the present Bern church. It was in a remote place by itself. For a long time it remained a mystery why a single grave was situated in this pasture. It was eventually learned that more than a century ago the grave was placed there to "hide" it from the Indians who would dig up graves of white men. The grave was that of Sam Baumgartner. In 1980, it was moved to the present church cemetary.

BIOGRAPHY: Doris' children and several sources list her birthday as 6/2/1833 or 6/2/1834. However, in the register of members of Trinity Lutheran Church, Ida Co, IA, she lists her birthday as 12/2/1834.

BIOGRAPHY: Doris came with her parents' family to America from Preetz, Holstein, Prussia (Germany). They sailed from Hamburg on April 12, 1847 aboard the bark "Harriett" aka "Henrietta". They arrived in New Orleans on June 9, 1847. Another passenger's diary of this voyage can be found at http://www.celticcousins.net/scott/henrietta1847trip.htm. Unusually, the same ship took them up the Mississippi to St Louis and on to Davenport according to the diary. A history of the ship is at http://www.geocities.com/mppraetorius/com-ha.htm.

BIOGRAPHY: Another Holstein family, the Blocker's arrived on another ship at very nearly the same time. Although we don't know for sure, it's likely that Hans Kroeger and Sophia Blocher died at some point along the way. By 1850, the surviving spouses have married and are found living together (like the Brady Bunch) in the 1850 and 1860 censuses for Scott Co, IA.

BIOGRAPHY: Doris brought the ties even closer by first marrying her step-brother, Henry Christian Blocker, in 1850. Henry C. Blocker died sometime between 11/4/1850 and 6/8/1852.

BIOGRAPHY: Doris remarried to Diedrich Funderman. The two bought 2.5 acres of land from Doris' parents for $ 50 in 1853.

CENSUS: Appears on 1850 census for District 4, Scott Co, IA, Dwelling # 430, image p. 64. Her step-brother who will soon become her husband is in the same dwelling.

CENSUS: Appears on 1860 census for Winfield Twp, Scott Co, IA, Dwelling # 20, image p. 5.

DEATH: Alternative death date from Church register: 5/21/1901.
