Wordless (nearly) Wednesday - Mary Mohr family

Wordless (nearly) Wednesday
Mary Mohr family
 Over the past month or so, I have been exchanging photos and other family history information with some cousins regarding the families our great-grandfather, Michael Smith. I've sharing a number of them, from time to time, earlier on this blog.

Today, I want to share one that "I just like." It is the family of Mary, from Michael's first wife (we descend from his second wife).

Mary married Adam Mohr in Hampton, Rock Island Co, Illinois. They had six sons. I suppose I identify with them, since I'm the oldest of a family of five boys.

And, there are only five boys in this photo - which allows us to date it - Michael Leo Mohr (1893-1987) as born in 1893. This would have been a year or two earlier.

Adam Mohr (1858-1944)
Mary Mohr (1858-1940)

John Adam Mohr (1878-1969)
Charles Mohr (1880-1975)
Louis F. Mohr (1882-1960)
Edward Mohr (1884-1949)
August Peter Mohr (1888-1967)

My comment: I have often wondered if the Mohr families that have lived in Coon Rapids over the years were related in any way…  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
