Sarah Drain Edenborn's Burial ??
Posted by: Bill Strickland (ID *****3892) Date: October 28, 2009 at 12:07:19
  of 572

Sarah was the wife of noted American industrialist, William Edenborn, of barbed wire fame.

They were married October 4, 1876, she being of St. Louis, MO, daughter of John Drain, a St. Louis real estate dealer, and his wife, a lady by the surname of Carpenter.

There is obviously a footstone in Shreveport, but, if a burial permit was issued in St Louis, where is she actually buried? Is the Shreveport stone merely a memorial marker?

[I find it interesting to note that Sarah and husband William Edeborn's submissions are by different people on different dates]


Edenborn, Sarah Drain -- St. Louis Post-Dispatch 1944 Article 8/9 p3B, Burial permit 8/12

I haven't found any burial information for Sarah and William's daughter, Antoinette, who was killed in a horse-street car accident in St Louis on the 5th of January 1894, nor their adopted daughter, Lilly, who died of diphtheria while young. Is the mother perhaps buried with her children and/or parents instead of her husband?

As this couple had no survivng descendants, it is more a historical query than a genealogical one. I came across these very interesting folks while looking at an Edeburn family of Mercer County, PA

Any help appreciated.

Thank you,
