Birth: 1836, France
Death: 1912
Reno County
Kansas, USA

John Kohler/Cole, aka "Uncle Johnie" is my G-G-Grandfather.
The Cole (Kohler/Koehler) family immigrated from Alsace/Lorraine, France about 1848. Settling in Bracken County, Kentucky.
In 1856, John married Sarah Amanda Latham, in Kentucky. 12 children were born to them: Will, Howard, Tilly, Sam, Addie, Minnie, Seely (my G-Grandfather), Gertie, Eva, Hallie, Clara - died young, and Nellie - died young.
After Sarah's death in 1904, John remarried, Mrs. Louise Simmons.
About 1870, the family moved from Bracken County, KY to Dickinson County, Kansas (John was on the 1870 Kansas Census with 2 other men from Kentucky, I never did find Sarah and the children).
By 1880, the family was in Rice County, Kansas, and by the mid 1890's, the family was in Reno County, Kansas.
There is a discrepancy in the date of John's death, between Aug 12/18. The Newspaper says one, and his tombstone says the other.
