Joseph Matchett

Joseph Matchett was from Indiana and nothing much is known of the family. Joseph and Mary were never married, although one child was born from their relationship, a daughter named Josie Myrtle .

John Presley Gerber and Mary Elizabeth Schlechty

Sometime after the birth of her daughter, Josie, Mary Elizabeth married John Presley Gerber. They had at least one other child, a son named Otho.

This is all I know about this line presently. When I was growing up dad would always take us to the Schlechty Reunion in Indiana. It was alway great fun, but as a kid it was just a chance to play with my cousins, and I didn't pay much attention to how we were related.

For any changes or corrections or additons please contact Elizabeth.
