"Cementon Stirred By Shooting; Aged Man Wounds Son, Ends Own Life; Incensed Over Being Put In County Home." Failing in an attempt to shoot his wife and son, David H. Leibenguth, 72, turned a revolver on himself and committed suicide yesterday morning about 8:40 o'clock, outside the family residence in Cementon. Fits of temper are said to have caused members of his family to have Leibenguth sent to the county home on October 17, 1929, by court order. Resentment of this is believed to have caused the flare of anger that made Leibenguth shoot twice at his wife and son, one bullet wounding the son, and then end his own life. Leibenguth, former proprietor of the Laurel house at Cementon and a businessman of that place for a number of years; returned from the county home on Thursday night. In company with Officer Howard Kelchner, Leibenguth went to the home but found his wife and son absent. As a result Leibenguth stayed overnight with his daughter, Mrs. Archie Zellner, of Cementon. Yesterday morning he returned to his home and the son saw him coming and locked the rear door. The wife Mrs. Susan Leibenguth and the son, Albert, went to a window and Mrs. Leibenguth says she saw her husband pull an object from his pocket that turned out to be a .32 caliber revolver. Mrs. Leibenguth screamed a warning to her son as she left the window but the son was hit by a bullet that struck him in the left arm, inflicting a flesh wound. Leibenguth then tried the front door and returned to the rear of the house, the wife and son hearing the report of a shot that ended his life. Neighbors called Officer Kelchner and he found the man lying on the rear porch, shot through the head. He was rushed to the Haff hospital but died a few minutes after admission. The son, a World War veteran, received treatment there for the wound, in the fleshy portion of his arm. Leibenguth was proprietor of Laurel house, late in the nineteenth century. Prior to that he had worked in the cement-kilns about Cementon and since leaving the hotel business had conducted a grocery store and worked as a carpenter, cooper, crossing watchman, odd-job man and operated a farm. He had made periodical visits fromthe county home since becoming resident there and always went to the home accompanied by an officer, except yesterday morning. Where he secured the gun has not been established. State highway patrolmen and Coroner, Fred R. Bausch conducted an investigation together with Officer Kelchner yesterday but all agreed on a verdict of suicide. Leibenguth was born in Indianland, Northampton county, the son of Daniel and Marie, nee Buck, Leibenguth Jr. He is survived by his widow , Susan, nee Peters, Leibenguth, by a daughter, Mrs. Archie Zellner of Cementon, and a son, Albert, at home. Three sisters, Mrs. Christiana Hauser, of Allentown; Mrs. Sabina Laub, of Northampton, and Mrs. Maria Person, of Philadelphia, survive.

Virginia Conway Leibenguth passed away peacefully at her home in Missoula on Wednesday, June 1, 2011. She was born Sept. 30, 1926, to Joseph and Madeline Conway. Born and raised in Allentown, Pa., she graduated from Allentown High School in 1944. In the fall of 1945 she met Martin Leibenguth while working at S. S. Kresge. Her soulmate sweet talked her into marriage the following summer on July 20, 1946. Virginia soon became a "Master Mover," as she moved from coast to coast and back again following Martin's job. It was said, "No one can pack a rambler with seven kids, a dog and all the necessities faster than Mom!" The family settled in the Missoula area in 1973 where she could finally put down roots. Ginger's life was centered around her family. She was an avid fan and cheerleader for each of her children and grandchildren, always there for us on the sideline of sports and life. Traveling wasn't always her first choice of leisure time, yet travel she did to please others, from Fiji to the Caribbean, Mexico to Hawaii, cruises, or the Oregon Coast. She treasured her friends dearly, and loved sunning on the beach. She loved shopping and had a passion for finding a great bargain. Nothing tickled her more than playing cards with her friends and family. She was preceded in death by her parents; sisters, Bernie, Anna, Kitty and Marie; her brothers, Joe and Billy as well as her daughter Linda. Survivors include her husband of 65 years, Martin; daughter Marie (Michael) Stockhill; sons Guy (Whitney), Scott (Susan), Rod (Randy) and daughters Kim and Marti; grandchildren, Randy, Ashley, Tiffany, Jessica, Jeremy, Brittney, Robbi, Reno, Bryce, Kali and Travis. Services will be held at noon Monday, June 6, at Blessed Trinity Church at 1475 Eaton St. A reception will follow immediately after. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Watson Children's Shelter, 3978 Buckhouse Lane, Missoula 59804 per Ginger's wishes. Arrangements are under the care of Garden City Funeral Home and Crematory.

The grim Reaper again cut into the ranks of Geroge E. Schwartz Camp, No. 2 U.S.W.V., when taps were sounded Tuesday for William F. Leibenguth, an active member of the Camp, who passed away at the Allentown hospital at the age of 64 years. He had been a patient at the hospital since last Thursday, suffering with a complication of ailments. Comrade Leibenguth had two separate enlistments in the Philippines to his credit. At the outbreak of the war with Spain in 1898, he stole his way to Philadelphia on a fast milk train in order to enlist in the service. That was on December 2,1898. After enlisting he was sent to Jefferson barracks, St. Louis, Mo. Prior to sailing from San Francisco for Manila, where he served in the First Battery E; U.S. Light Battery Artillery. He took part with the Eight Army Corps at Morong July 2 and 3, Calamba and Los Banous, July 27 and 30, and then on the North line Kolokan and Angeles September 16 and 28, and October 3, 5, 16 and 22; Magalang November 5, and Conception and Capas, November 11, 1898.

He was a son of Samuel Leibenguth who served in the Civil War as a Substitute. Little is known of Comrade Leibenguth's family.
