Loder Family Genealogy Forum
I've discovered some biographical information on several Loders who resided in the area of Waverly, Nebraska. The bios were published in 1916.
Ira A. Loder b. September 27, 1877, son of Alexander Loder and Margaret Landon (my connetion is through the Landon line). Alexander was born in Ohio on January 17, 1846 (another source shows him born in a different month). Ira married Jennie K. Martz on September 26, 1900. Jennie was born in Columbia County, PA, daughter of Nathan and Esther Melick. Ira and Jennie had two children: Ira Merle, b. March 18, 1902; and Albert Eliot, b. November 8, 1905.
Louis J. Loder was born in Coshocton county Ohio on February 13, 1835, son of William Loder and Margaret Maston. Louis was the 3rd of 12 children. Louis married Alice Walker in June 1866, daughter of Samuel and Christina Walker. Samuel and Christina came from England. Alice died January 2, 1913. Louis and Alice had five children: Edward, Edith, William and two who died in infancy. The bio includes a photo of Louis and Alice.
