     Samuel Oliver Dreibelbis was born on 31 July 1859 in Cranberry Township, Venango County, Pennsylvania.2,3,1 He was the son of Moses A. Dreibelbis and Mary Ann Engle.1 He married Kathryn Wise circa 1881.4 He and Kathryn Wise were divorced in 1886 in Smethport, McKean County, Pennsylvania.4 He married Emma Lulu Murry on 24 July 1889 in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.2 He died circa 1918 in Kanawha County, West Virginia.5,1
     Samuel Oliver Dreibelbis was known as Oliver. Samuel and Emma had seven children, three of whom died as infants.6 He and Emma Lulu Murry were living in Walton, Roane County, West Virginia, in 1910.7 He was an oil well driller.7,2,3
     Records show that Olive Amsdell was raised as the daughter of Nelson Amsdell and Kathryn Wise. Since Kathryn was married to Samuel Oliver Dreibelbis at the time Olive was born, it is the opinion of this researcher that Olive was the biological daughter of Samuel Oliver Dreibelbis, but raised by Nelson Amsdell as his own daughter.8,4
