Hi Judy,

My name is Roger Koehler. I am a direct descendant of Ernst (he always went by Ernst) Koehler. He is my grandfather. I was just thinking about him today, and I was wondering if anybody had posted any information about him on the internet. That is how I found your post.

Ernst has several surviving children, and we have family reunions every couple of years or so. I am beginning to think that this is not enough.

I take the train to work every morning, and this morning I was thinking about human relationships as I made my way through the crowd. I was passing by people I didn't know, and they were pulling their faces away from my glance to look at the ground or off into space. If per chance I was able to catch somebody looking at me in the eye, I would extend a friendly greeting which would be answered and then forgotten.

Family relationships are different. How wonderful it is to have everlasting connections with people that go beyond casual acquaintances!

Back in the era you are investigating, families lived together in tight-knit clans with a sense of community and common interest too often forgotten in today's society.

Your inquiry has given me the motivation to make more frequent contact with the Ernst Koehler "clan". What exactly would you like me to find out? I would be glad to help if I can.
