She is also a great-great grandmother of mine, and we recently found that she isn't buried in Pond Grove cemetery in Otterbein according to the cemetery records. We think she might be in Montmorenci cemetery with her husband Simon, but I have been unable to find the churches cemetery records as of yet. We also cannot find the gravestone of Simon or Edith or their daughter buried there. A lot of the old gravestones of fallen over the hill and been destroyed, so they could be one of them. If you need any more Stetler information feel free to e-mail me. @
