Anecdote


Source: Carolyn Westberry


Hide Details Note: Several years after Ellsworth Eisenbarth's wife Julia died, his showboat, "The Eisenbarth Henderson Floating Theater" pulled into Hartford, West Virginia. An irate schoolteacher came aboard to complain to Captain Eisenbarth that the boat's evening performance was interrupting a play being given by her students. How that dispute was settled is not know, but obviously they worked things out because that teacher was Jennie Brown, who married Ellsworth Eisenbarth.

Jennie was not happy with river life, so they settled in Marietta, Ohio, where they had a beautiful home near the river at 432 Front Street. Ellsworth died there in 1928.

I have always felt badly for Jennie ‎(I was only 3 when she died so I didn't know her)‎, but the story was always so heavily biased to the strong and ever-abiding love between Ellsworth and his first wife Julia. Ellsworth was taken back to new Martinsville to be buried beside Julia.

Jennie remained in the family home in Marietta until her death there in 1950. She died at home in Marietta, but her family took her to the Brown burial plot in Hartford, West Virginia.

Jennie was always in the role of stepmother. She raised Ignace, Denella and Uncle Gene because Julia Ann Eisenbarth had died soon after the birth of Julia Pauline. Julia Pauline was taken by her mother's sister and her husband and was raised in Sistersville. Jennie was obviously a good stepmother. Her notes and cards to the children were always signed "Mama." Uncle Gene always spoke highly of her.

Biographical Notes Marietta, Washington County, Ohio, USA


Hide Details Note: 1910: Ellsworth, 44 and Jennie, 40, had three children and a servant at home. The children were Dennalla, 16, Ignace, 11 and Eugene 5. Margaret Hagan, 46, was the "servant." I believe that Margaret Hagan had known the Eisenbarths--perhaps had nursed the mother of the children--in New Martinsville or Sistersville, West Virginia.

1920: Ellsworth is 54. They were renting their house. At home were Jennie, 51, Ignace, 20 and Eugene 15. Dennalla had left home.

1930: Only Jennie, 48 ‎[actually 62]‎ and Ignace, 28 were at home. Ellsworth had died. Jennie was renting her home for $35 per month. At some stage, she had rented out the lower part of the house and was now living upstairs. Ignace was a dentist's assistant.

Funeral

Note: Jennie's brother Miles Oscar Brown was in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, visiting his son Max and family in 1950 when Jennie died. Miles took the train to Parkersburg where his son Harold met him and took him to Marietta for the funeral.
Memories

Note: Jennie Brown Eisenbarth always looked like "the grand dame," with nice clothes, jewelry, etc. She was also jolly.
Cards Capt. Ellsworth Eugene E.E. EISENBARTH -

Hide Details Note: On their honeymoon Jennie and Ellsworth went to various places in the East, including Richmond, Virginia, where Ellsworth mailed a postcard to his daughter Ignace in Marietta. Postmarked December 11 ‎(Wed.)‎ it said, "We are well Ignace. How are you? Papa" The picture on the card was of St. John's church, where Patrick Henry made his famous speech. "Give me liberty or give me death!"

The second card was addressed to little Gene from Jennie. Postmarked December 13, 1907, it read "Would love to see my little sweetheart. Mamma." The picture was a street scene in Norfolk, Virginia.

Family Notes Capt. Ellsworth Eugene E.E. EISENBARTH -

Note: Jennie and E.E. were married on 10 December 1907, and from all accounts had a happy life together during the 21 years of their marriage. Ellsworth's wife Julia Anderson had died very young, leaving him to bring up their four surviving children. Jennie became a loving second mother to the children.
