EBERSPACHER posted by Linda Sullivan on Monday, October 27, 2003

I am looking for any information on George T. EBERSPACHER who lived in Pana, IL. I don't know how long he lived there but I do know for sure that he was there in 1922 and 1923 and I am sure a lot longer before and after. He was married for a short while to Margaret Goodearle Rummell. I read in the Decauter Review that he was planning an annulment of his marriage to Margaret. They had a son Robert M. EBERSPACHER. If anyone knows these people I would appreciate hearing from you. George EBERSPACHER is my grandfather and Robert EBERSPACHER is my father.
I am looking for pictures of George T. EBERSPACHER and or Robert EBERSPACHER as a child. George's house is on the same road as the cemetery that has EBERSPACHER'S in it. It is still standing, somewhat. It has those greenish shingles as siding? Dad went to a school that was sort of across the field from the cemetery. I would also like to have a picture of that if anyone has one.
