    3. I've "rescued" a group of photographs of the WEHRLE Family of Kansas. The group includes photographs of: John WEHRLE Will WEHRLE John, Will, and Anna WEHRLE Agnes WEHRLE and Dora KOHLER Agnes WEHRLE All of the photographs appears to have been taken in Meade, KS or Topeka, KS between 1880's and early 1900's. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding this family: John P. WEHRLE was b. abt 1843 in Indiana to parents John WEHRLE (b. 1814) and Catherine HAAG (1820-1909). John was one of 6 children born to this couple including Catherine; John P.; Christopher; Mary Ann; Louisa; and Frank WEHRLE, all born between 1842 and 1852. John married Elizabeth Lillian JONES (b. 1851) and together they had three children including, Lawrence and Betty WEHRLE. Frank William WEHRLE was b. 16 Jul 1883 to parents John WEHRLE (1843-1925) and Caroline P. WEAVER (1850-1889). He died 27 May 1958 and is buried in the Graceland Cemetery in Meade, KS. Agnes WEHRLE was b. 22 Jul 1886 in Indiana to parents Francis WEHRLE (1850-1917) and Anna C. CAIN (1852-1943). Agnes married Roy F. TODD (1882-1955). Agnes had at least 4 siblings including, John Daniel WEHRLE (1876-1953); Frank C. WEHRLE (1878-1941); Anna WEHRLE (1882-1883); and George W. WEHRLE (1893-1941).
