I have found an image of a man named "Oscar Kibele" at a local antiques & consignment shop (in Ohio). The image is of 5 men, 3 who are standing & 2 who are sitting, the writing on the back of the photo says: "Oscar Kibele 412 Buttles Ave, Columbus Ohio", & then below that says "the smooth faced man sitting, is Oscar Kibele". As someone who is interested in Ancestry it occurred to me to take a picture of the photo so I might be able to share the photo with those who may have Mr. Kibele in their family tree.
Columbus City Directory
G.J. Brand & Company, 1913 - Columbus (Ohio) PAGE 968
lists the address for Oscar (Contractor) Hattie (Teacher), & Oscar Jr. (Student) Kibele, as 412 Buttles Ave Columbus Ohio
Also, when I googled "Oscar Kibele" I came across some various Kibele info & so I figured I'd share it in case any of it would be helpful to anyone.....
