Christian & Elizabeth (Schöettler) Shetler Family. Christian & Elizabeth Schőettler (Shetler), with 10 or their 12 children taken in Denver in 1914. The lady (Elizabeth, also called Bobo)++ in the middle, second row from the back. This is the great-grandmother of Sallie Harlan who has been keeping Mike up to date on that end of the Schoettler (Shetler) clan. Pictured in the back between the two men is Katherine, great-grandmother of Tom Jensen*, about 1914.
*On November 15, 2012, I received an email from Tom Jensen that read: “Christian C. Schöettler is my great great grandfather. Can you direct me to anyone know on his side of the family. My great-grandmother was his youngest girl (Kate) Katherine. My name is Tom Jensen, I live in Iowa. I got started looking for my mom’s grandparents. Katherine married Fred Harris in Alliance, NE. Katherine had three girls, one named Katherine and she had two girls, one named Katherine Sue.”
I have been communicating with Tom and sending him information. Hopefully we will learn more about his family and share it here.
Sallie sent this picture of her dad, Bob Irvin, who is 89 (and Christian Shetler’s great grandson), her brother John (64), and her (66) taken at Christmas, 2010. She said “as you will see we have all inherited Christian’s dark eyes and hair (well it was dark at one time!). And I think Dad has inherited the ears too! So now you know what your distant California cousins look like.”
The following information was found in an old Bible by our distant cousin, Sallie Harlan(firstname.lastname@example.org) who sent me this information. She will be sending more and I will be adding more. It was so neat for Sallie to find us and make contact. I hope to meet her someday.
