Aron Schultz Kehler was born in Hochfeld, the third son, fourth child of the Berliner Kehlers. Like the others, grew up in the family farm in Ebenfeld.
On November 28, 1911, Aron married Elizabeth Hiebert of Hochfeld. It was a fruitful marriage that produced seven boys and four girls and lasted 56 years.
In spite of being overweight and a lifetime of heavy smoking, gruelling labour, Aron outlived all but one younger brother (Henry) and one sister (Susan). At the age of 78, passed away in the Steinbach Bethesda Hospital on July 25, 1968.
