Perhaps it would help to know how we are related by posting individual Kobler lineage. Here is mine:

Mike Settles -> Lois Steeples Settles -> Marie Kobler Steeples -> Carl Kobler -> John F. Kobler.

  1. Kenneth Lee Lummus (Kobler) says:

    My dad was Winnie Kobler,son of Herbert and Carrie Kobler of Corvallis, Oregon. I went up there a lot when I was in high school and not enough when I went to college in McMinnville, Oregon. My first dad (Winnie) died on a B29 bomb run over Tokyo in May of 1945. He was the aircraft commander. His last words were, “bail out”, but the only crew member to do so was Harry Slater, then a wing burned off and they crashed with no other survivors. I referred to my “first” dad because the man that raised me from 3 years old, Al, was my dad also.

      Thanks for the story Ken. Do you have information about your grandfather Herbert (or 1st father) that would be good to post on the website?

      Hi Albert. Glad to see descendants of Albert James. If you have any photos or stories, I would love to post them if you want to email me.

      • Albert Kevin Kobler says:

        Just as a point of information, I go by my middle name – Kevin – mainly because both of my grandfathers were named Albert as well as first cousin Albert Douglas Hardman. Both Doug and I use our middle names to avoid confusion.

  13. Martha Rath Vincent says:

    Hi,
    I’m a Kobler too. My mother was Margaret Kobler Rath, daughter of Albert and Anna Kobler. She married Robert Lewis Rath, and they both grew up and stayed in the Morland/Hill City area. My two brothers, Tim, Philip, and I grew up surrounded by Kobler and Rath families. With such close-knit families, our childhoods were golden. Thanks to all of you for putting up this site and allowing us to stay in touch with our extended families.

    • Hi Martha, nice to see so many descendants of Albert and Anna who are finding the website enjoyable! Thanks for sharing your story. You are welcome for the site. It does seem that Ann’s Facebook group and this website are giving us new ways to stay in touch or in many cases to meet extended family members for the first time.

    Hope you enjoyed the trip to Montlingen.
