Bio and Links
I discovered my love for genealogy about 10 years ago through a cousin that started working on our family tree. Since then I have tried to help others in any way I can because so many people have helped me in my quest. If you would like to use my photos, feel free to do so as long as you provide photo credits to me, as I do the same for any photos that I use from other volunteers. I also don't have a problem with transferring memorials if they are your family members.

RE: Olive Marie Kohler Eden
Yes, that would be the same photo and the same person I copied it from. Betty Schrauth is a very nice lady. My sister and I visited her and her husband Elroy before he passed away.

RE: Olive Marie Kohler Eden
Yes she is Victoria's daughter and she did stand up at Mary's wedding with Frank Melzer. Her father was Peter Strachota. She was a step sister to my grandmother Olive. We called her aunt Tillie. Later in life she lived with my Uncle Ralph and aunt Esther Eden. She came with her sister Francis to help with the 5 children when Olive died. They both stayed here in Chicago after that. Tillie's Find A Grave is 105911599. I added a close up of the photo that my niece added.
I have a photo of Mary V. Kohler in what appears to be her communion or confirmation. A few years
ago a lady in Wisconsin who was a second cousin to my father let my sister and I copy her mother's albums and this was one of the photos. I would be happy to send it to you if you send me your email address.

RE: Olive Marie Kohler Eden
No, we are not related to the Kohler faucet people lol. John Uhlman was actually who put us in contact with Don Felix in Wisconsin and his wife. He took us out to the Kohler farm where his brother now resides. He is a very nice man. He told me his intentions were to publish a book on St. Kilian people, but he has not done it yet. I keep trying to encourage him. I have a copy of the st. Kilian church records that was published about 10 or so years ago. I don't think copies are still available. I will take a look at the find a graves on your family when I get a little caught up with things I'm researching now. I'm working on the Macks right now. Take care Jodi.

RE: Olive Marie Kohler Eden
Hi Jodi,
Good to hear from you. I only had her daughter Shirley and her husband Joseph Shudy. I did not have Bill. As far as the Kohler family we have done a lot of research over the years and have copies of d.c., marriage, wills etc. My two cousins and I actually got to visit the Kohler farm a couple years ago. It is now owned by the Felix family, but we were able to visit with the help of a Felix family member. It was so exciting to be there. I also have my great grandmother Victoria Mack Kohler's necklace she is wearing in her photo. I think her photo is on find a grave. I feel I am fortunate. If I can ever be of any help to you let me know.

RE: Olive Marie Kohler Eden
Hi Jodi,
Lorenz married twice. Mary V. was the daughter from his second wife Elizabeth Knoll. His first wife was Francisca Specht. Lorenz & Francisca's son Anton was my great great grandfather. He married my great grandmother Victoria Mack Strachota. This was Victoria's second marriage. My father is William Kenneth Eden and the second child of Olive Marie Kohler their daughter. Is that as clear as mud? lol. I have Adam Horle as Mary V's spouse and 7 children under them. Which child are you a descendent of? Do you have a memorial number for your family line. it is good to hear from family Jodi.

RE: Olive Marie Kohler Eden
Hi Jodi,
Sorry for my delay in responding. It's been a busy week-end. Yes, You may use any photos. My niece EDM said you have contacted her in the past also and she gave her approval also. Since we both had added photos I wanted to make sure it was ok with her also. Who were your parents? We were both wondering just how we are all connected. I plan on adding a better photo of my father William Kenneth Eden tomorrow. It's good hearing from you Jodi.

RE: Noll photos
a couple of years ago you left a message on my page in find a grave about permission to use photos. I don't know if I answered as I never look at the messages on my page, but if not, please do!
