I assume that you have the following, but just in case:
Lillian Neff Mauger 1849-1930
1849-1930 , Etna, Columbus, Pataskala
Lillian Margaret Neff was born January 4, 1849 to Henry and Rebecca (Houser) Neff in Etna, Ohio. A sister, Mary Alice was born November 29, 1851. She lived only 17 years, dying August 18, 1869 of curvature of the spine resulting in pressure on the brain. Six months later, on February 15, 1870 - at the age of 21, Lillian married Samuel Mauger.
Samuel was the 6th born child of Frederick Mauger who raised a family of 10 on a farm in Wagrum just a few miles east of Etna along the National Rd. Sam was a Corporal in Co. C of the 27th Regiment of the Ohio Volunteer Infantry from July 1861 until August 1864. On July 22, 1864 he was wounded by a musket ball through his right shoulder perforating his right lung during the battle of Atlanta, Ga. From the time of his discharge until his death he was "in feeble condition unable to do manual labor. (From pension papers). Evidently he wasn't too feeble to produce two boys within the first 2 years of marriage. Bertrand Howe Mauger was born November 30, 1870 (Yes, thatís just 9 months from the date of marriage). My Grandfather, Samuel C Mauger was born 2 years later on September 10, 1872 in Pickerington, Ohio. Lillian became a widow on May 9, 1874 leaving her with 2 sons under the age of 4. Our generous government paid her $8/mo.
Obviously, Henry and Rebecca had to help out financially as shown by the fact that Lillian and Sam were living with them in Etna and Lillian was teaching Music. The 1880 census reveals that Bert and Sam were living with their grandparents but there was no mention of Lillian.
We find Lillian again in 1897-1899 caring for her dying mother. In 1901 she is living with her son Bertrand at 474 W 5th Ave., in Columbus, Ohio. From 1902-04 Lillian and Bert are living at 346 Dennison Ave., Cols, Oh. Bert must have gotten married about 1910 because we find Lillian in an apartment in a home at 1389 Forsythe Ave., Cols, OH between 1912 and 1926. I believe it was about this time she started spending winters in St. Petersburg, FL., at the Vanoy Hotel. She lived with son Sam and wife, Bertha in Pataskala during the Summer months where she died March 30, 1930.
From her obituary we learn that she resided in Columbus for 27 years and was member of the first Womanís Aid of Protestant Hospitals - later White Cross Hospital where I was born. She was also on the hospital board for several years. She was a member of the Northminister Presbyterian Church of Columbus and also of Well Womanís Relief Corps and the Northside Day Nursery.
Lillian is buried next to her son Bertrand in the Pataskala cemetery not far from her son Samuel Mauger, his wife Bertha Youmans Mauger and granddaughter Kathryn Mauger Yoerger (my mother) Her husband Samuel Mauger is buried in the Etna Cemetery close to Lillian parents - Henry and Rebecca Houser Neff
