    Hi Mike,
    At the website,, I posted a picture album called Kobler Ancestry which includes all the pictures I had that were relevant, with maybe a few stray Paxsons. I think there are about 40 pictures there. Looks like we share many of the same pictures. I love the picture of the straw-men, which I know you photoshopped, on the home page heading. Super job. I also received an ugly password 12 characters long complete with lower case, caps, and numbers.

      I added a link to your Kobler page to the Blogroll. You can change your ugly password to a very pretty one of your liking by clicking “Howdy, your name” and selecting Edit my profile.

    About the Paxson grandparents. As I am sure you know they were Quakers. Mother told about Grandfather Paxson milking a cow when the cow kicked and spilled the bucket. She said Cyrus stood up and had his milking stool ready to hit the cow when his Quaker upbringing kicked in and he stopped and said, “Get thee behind me, Satan!” She said the Paxon grandparents said thee and thou, etc. Also Grandmother Paxson named Sybil was called Sibby. For relaxation in the middle of the afternoon she would go upstairs to her bedroom and sit in a rocker and smoke a corncob pipe. When the kids would ask Grandmother Kobler about her mother doing this she would say, “Let’s not talk about it.”

    Dad said he was riding with Grandpa Paxson on the wagon. Dad’s straw hat blew off and landed under the horse(can’t remember horse’s name). The horse promptly filled Dad’s hat .
    Grandpa Paxson laughed and laughed. Dad didn’t laugh so much!!

      Hadn’t heard that one before. That is pretty funny. After hearing the stories from Mom about how strict the Quaker relatives were it nice to know Grandpa Paxson had a sense of humor!
