The Shokler lineup, in order of birth

IMG_0751.th
The Shokler lineup,  in order of birth,  was Rose, Philip, Morris, Harry, Lillian, Fanny, Jean and Molly. I don’t know if the sketch was Phyllis.  Do ask her? Any more questions, please ask me or your mom.

Kolmen Shokler, my grandfather, came to the U.S.  to escape the czar’s army.. He met Ida Berg here and married her.  She had a sister, whom we knew as Tanta Yetta. Incidentally Aunt Fan often worked sewing at the fur store, which was the family meeting place in downtown Cinti. She also went on buying trips to N.Y. with Phil, maybe with her father, too.
