  • Notes 
    • Brothers Lewis Elmer and Wilson Joseph Bettler married sisters Elizabeth and Clara Ellen Swigart.
    • (Research):I have an Ohio birth record for John Bettler, born on the same day as Lewis Elmer Bettler, listing Lewis's parents as John's parents. I believe that this birth certificate is actually for Lewis. There is no indication in any record I have seen that Lewis had a twin brother, and John Bettler does not appear in any US census record I have seen. In the 1900 US census, Leah Haring Bettler is listed as having 11 children, 9 still living. This also indicates that John and Lewis are the same person. If they are, indeed one, then there would be a total of 11 children, with Edna Lola and Jacob dying before 1900.
