Re: Mohrs from Stahl Russia

Thank you for your reply Mr. Kerwin.

I'm trying to expand the Mohr family tree beyond the borders of the United States.

My maternal grandfather, Emil Mohr, was born 7/25/1883 in Stahl am Tarlyk, Russia, Samara Region. It is said he was christened in infancy in Stahl. He died 3/19/1970 in Belleville, Republic, Kansas and is buried in the Chester Cemetary in Chester, NE. He married Katherine Margaret Stroh from Frank, Russia 9/3/1904 and they lived a few years in Lincoln, NE before moving to Chester NE where he lived the rest of his life. They had 12 children together, three of whom died as infants.

I can go no further until I have information on his parents who I was told were born in Russia. I haven't any birthdates for them and only their first names.
His father was Jacob (common German/Russian name) and his mother's name is listed as Barbara. I'm assuming that's her first name however their have been instances in my research where that name appeared as a last name.

Any further assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Connie Waller (Mohr)
