Birthday Observances, Eliza J. Lashbrook Grettenberg

Eliza was born on November 2, 1852 in Madison, Dane County, Wisconsin to William N. Lashbrook and his wife Laura (Jane) Oakley Lashbrook.

On March 15, 1875 Eliza married Sylvester E. Grettenberg in West Mitchell, Mitchell County, Iowa.  This is their marriage certificate, so kindly shared by descendant, Diana Erickson.  (We also have the civil recording document for the marriage.)  Remember, you can see a larger version of the image by clicking on it, then returning to Reflections From the Fence by clicking your back button.

Eliza and Sylvester had 2 known children, Una Margaret Grettenberg and Hale Clarence Grettenberg, both born in Mitchell County, Iowa.   By 1910 we find them living in Redlands, San Bernadino County, California.

Eliza died January 2, 1928 at Redlands, San Bernadino County, California and is interred in the Mountain View Cemetery and Mausoleum, Altadena, Los Angeles County, California (in the Mausoleum).
