Josephine Haubursin, 1830-1907

This monument honoring the memory of Josephine Haubursin is found at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. The only facts that I know about Josephine are that according to her tombstone, she was born in 1830 and died in 1907. After searching through cemetery records, local death records, and several genealogical databases, I was unable to locate her name. Josephine Haubursin was not listed in the Sandusky City Directories for the early part of the twentieth century. The 1910 U.S. Census lists the surname Haubursin in Indiana and Pennsylvania, and gives Belgium as the birthplace for some Haubursin family members. If anyone knows more details about Mrs. Josephine Haubursin, please leave a message in the comments section. Thanks!
