Peter S Kehler


My father, Peter Schulz Kehler was born in Ebenfeld on January 1, 1896.

His father was Jacob K. (Berliner) Kehler (1863-1923), his mother was Elizabeth Schulz Kehler (1866-1943).

Peter was the eighth child in a family of 14 children. Two brothers and one sister predeceased him in infancy. His siblings were born between 1885 -1904. Growing to adulthood were Maria, Jacob, Gerhard, Aron, Johan, then Peter, Susanna, David, Heinrich, Elizabeth and Cornelius. Peter’s birth place was the farm located just north of the Mitchell ball park.

Peter was a small baby weighing a mere three and one-half pounds, so he was told. Incubators were unheard of but with intuition and ingenuity, bricks were warmed in the oven to surround him with warmth. He survived and grew to be a slim, dapper-looking man in his younger years. He was not very tall and later filled out to be robust in stature. Continue reading “Rev. Peter S. Kehler”
