I think Mrs. Laurel Gimbel of Crescent, O. O should be OK.
Not sure there was a brother named Philip, or Phillip.
I have found no record of him.
As far as I know of, Siblings are John C., George W.,
Mary Jane, Mariah L., Sarah E., Felix R., Harvey F.,
Laura or Laurel, Lionel C., Charles A.
Mother was Talitha or Telitha (Richardson) Walling.
Early mistake in OCR SOUNDEX on internet had shown her name as Tabitha and/or Labitha.
