Is it possible the small child on the left is Marladene Mohr?
The man shown standing between Ralph Sr and Robert Jr looks like
Lester Fluegel to me. Does anyone else see that?

The Courtship

We are given a glimpse into history!  It's a letter written by R.H. Mohr to Elsie Schlueter in 1910. The postmark on the envelope is March 21, 1910, and the letter, written on letterhead from the US Post Office in Morris, Minn, is dated March 21, 1910.

The letter begins:

"Miss Elsa Schlueter

Well Elsa I am in town and wish you was hear (sic) with me for we could have all kind of fun. I hope some day you will be in with me.

Hope you are all over that mad (or bad) spell my Dear. Try and forget it will you for I am allwas (sic) good to you My Girl. Well I will see what I can do for you about tacking (sic) you to town Friday. I will do it if can.

Good by (sic) Dear.

R.H. Mohr"

(Note: There wasn't much punctuation in the letter so some liberties have been taken.)

Invitations to this year's reunion are going out in the mail this week. Watch for it and start making plans to attend!

Robert Herman Mohr and Kathrine "Elsie" Mohr Trivia: Question 1

This blog was set up for the descendants of Robert Herman Mohr Sr and Kathrine "Elsie" (Schlueter) Mohr and to inform the descendants of the plans being made for this years' reunion.

From time to time  pictures and stories about our family will be posted here. If you have something you would like to share, please email them to MohrFamily2011@hotmail.com.

Now, a little trivia:  Does anyone know the date that Grandpa (Robert Sr) and Grandma Elsie were married? (No peeking!)

(I confess. I had to look it up.)

They were married on January 12, 1911 at Zion Lutheran Church. Early in their marriage they lived in Hancock where Grandpa (or Great Grandpa, depending on the reader) worked at Smokestead Elevator. Before long, they became farmers in Horton Twp, where they lived until 1950, when Grandpa died on October 23rd. Grandma continued to live on the farm for five years before moving to Ortonville, MN (that means she was 65 years old . . . when most people are retired) to work. In 1965 she moved to Morris.

Kathrine "Elsie" (Schlueter) Mohr

Reportedly, Grandma Elsie's waist size on her wedding day was 18 inches! Now that's something!

STORYTIME: Marladene Mohr (Robert and Aileen) remembers as a child spending summers on Grandma and Grandpa's farm. She recalled that Grandpa was a very hardworking farmer. Marladene also remembers a time when she and Dick Siebrecht (Marvin and Margaret) were given the task of collecting eggs from the hen house. As children will do they made a game of it and started tossing the eggs, breaking them. Understandably, Grandpa was not very happy with them! Those of you who are grandparents may have experienced similar times with your own grandchildren!

SAVE THE DATE:  Sunday, June 26, 2011, Pomme de Terre City Park, Morris, Potluck lunch at noon! Roast beef is on the menu! Followed by an afternoon of games and activities for kids of ALL ages! Hope to see you there!
