In responce to my own post:
While going through an OLD box of even OLDER pictures, I found a Family Record Page that looks like it was torn out of a little bibgle or something, a portrait of my Great-Great Grandfather with names on the back, and funeral picture of a man who might be my Great-Great-Grandfather. It has my Great-Grandmother's handwriting across the bottom that reads "Grandpa Wymer".

William Walter Wymer b. April 14, 1864 d. August 15, 1916
Mary Elizabeth Krieghbaum b. October 27, 1866 d. January 14, 1934

They had:
My great-grandmother, Orpha Eldora Wymer b. August 08, 1900 d. November 29, 1985
Jessie Mae Wymer b. December 25, 1890 d. May 22, 1977
Oliver Emanuel Wymer b. February 08, 1902 d. 1966
Pheobe Wymer b. January 27, 1886 d. November 28, 1962
Ida Wymer b. October 10, 1896
Ray Wymer
Frederick W. Wymer b. June 01, 1908 d. March 02, 1966
Leah Wymer
Nettie Everlie Wymer b. October 16, 1894 d. October 25, 1895
Earl Wymer b. April 06, 1898
Ervin Wesley Wymer b. July 22, 1888 d. December 30, 1892

I also found Mary Elizabeth Kreighbaum's father's Remembrance Card John Krieghbaum b. March 18, 1834 d. April 18, 1906

Using this information I found the 1970 US Census for Lake Township, Stark County, Ohio (page 2, Post Office Greentown)

John Krieghbaum - age 35 - Farm Laborer - birthplace Ohio
Mary A - 34 - Keeping House - Ohio
Emma - 5 - At Home - Ohio
Mary E - 4 - At Home - Ohio
Eliza - 2 - At Home - Ohio

I have scanned in all the above pictures if anyone wants copie, just email me:

I hope some of this helps someone out there.
