Ferdinand Carl Weber

1886 ~ 1929

My Maternal Great Grandfather

My great grandfather, Ferdinand Carl Weber, also known as "Fred", was born

24 February 1886 in Erie, Erie, Pennsylvania, USA(10), (22), (29), (5)

He was the son of Wilhelm J Weber and

Julia Anna Doeda (pronounced DAY-DUH).

He married Rosina Sophia Phirman.

He told his daughter Dorothy (Who told me), that he sat behind Rosina every Sunday in church and he married her because she had "pretty ears".

They had two children:

Dorothy Julia Weber -  b. 23 Apr 1907 - d. 22 Jan 1990

Harold Richard Weber - b. 26 Jun 1908 - d. Dec 1985

Ferdinand died 5 May 1929 in Erie, Erie, Pennsylvania, USA.

The cause of death was subdural hemorrhage.  (29)

True Story:

My grandmother Dorothy, daughter of Ferdinand told me this story. Back in the day, they had funerals at the home of the deceased.

They also prepared the deceased for their funeral at home. Grandma said that while they were preparing her father, she peeked around the corner and she her father's forehead glowing a bright green.

She was never able to find out why.

Turns out, after a bit of modern day internet research,

there seems to be a sciencey explanation for the glow.

Perhaps it was "Angel's Glow".
