Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been so fortunate to find people, along my journey, that have helped me with ancestry information, tips, leads to new places to look, corrections where I have erroneous information , etc. that I feel taking photos for Find A Grave is a tiny way that I can say THANK YOU and pay it forward.

I urge you to use ANY photos that I have taken on your tree or anyway you wish. I believe they are YOUR relatives and I have just been the messenger to connect you. Add the photos anytime and anywhere!

Thanks Carolyn! I've created a memorial for Cora if you want to stick that photo on there as well.

RE: Mohlers in Blair
I did really enlarge the tombstone picture on the memorial for Willis Mohler in Blair (you click on it, etc), and could see the S, but my husband says he would like to take another picture, since the name itself would impact family records for you. So we will do that tomorrow morning when the light is better for another picture we want, and when it is added to the memorial I will drop you another note.
Best wishes!

RE: Mohler
Yes the name was Willis with an S--I checked when we took the photo--I also looked when I posted it--I THINK you can see the S there too. But I can well imagine that a 5 year old would be called Willie, particularly back in those days.

You are most welcome for the photos, by the way! We started putting flowers and also area photos when we first got started with Find. Our son wanted to put flowers on his grandpa's grave in another state--it was one of those irritating flat-stone cemeteries, and while we knew the cemetery, it had no directory on-site. So my husband (MrB) typed in his father's name, the state and the simple words "find a grave". Up popped a photo of his father's stone--and an area shot that showed where it was with respect to a landmark. A complete stranger had done this, and we were touched by the flower she had placed by the grave. It meant something to us. Then my husband noticed there was an option for photo volunteers, and that is how we started.

RE: Mohlers in Blair
You are welcome. These 3, by the way, are the only Mohlers that we know are buried in the Blair cemetery. The two volunteers that added memorials from the cemetery lists in Fall, 2013, are very accurate--and very responsive to Edits as well. I sent them the Edits for the GPS and I think I saw they accepted the GPS already, so you can click on those links too. You probably know all this already, but when the Google Map loads, there is a Photo button at the bottom left--then you can zoom in and "move" around. The GPS is close, but usually not right on top of the stones--part is due to the conversions that take place, and the other is that I don't like to be standing right on top of somebody's grave when I take readings. Best wishes to you! May the family stories go on!

I second the other gentleman's thanks. I've removed the note as suggested.

Mohlers in Blair
We took pictures, and sent inscriptions, GPS, etc to the manager. The manager is very good about accepting those edits, and the pictures themselves should be up soon.

We THINK Mary A. Mohler was the grandmother of little Willis (not Willie, as he was named on the stone).

The other thing is that our county genealogical society is very good about finding and posting obits. If there are any for these Mohlers who died in the 1890's, I will send them to the manager for inclusion.

RE: August Carl Connor
This stone was next to the gravestone of August Carl Conner. I don't remember any inscriptions on the stone. I live over thirty miles from this cemetery and won't be up there any time soon. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Charles and Catherine Depue
The photos look great, Carolyn. I've created a memorial for Catherine Depue, #140641829, and would appreciate it if you would add your photos to it. No relation to Claud and Norma that I know of. Thanks for everything, and best wishes for the new year to you!
