Rescued Photo: Heppler Family Photograph 1890s

Shelley Cardiel rescues photographs from flea markets, eBay, you name it. She does what research she can to identify the family and then posts her findings on mailing lists, message boards, and photo sites in an attempt to reunite the pictures with family. What she does is awesome. I contacted her recently to see if she thought including them here might help. I hope it does! Please contact Shelley if you have information about her photos or project.

I’ve “rescued” an old photograph of Ella HEPPLER which was taken at the Brown Studio in Cameron, MO in the 1890’s. Ella is listed as 12 years old at the time the photograph was taken. I’m hoping to locate someone from Ella’s family so that this wonderful old treasure can be returned to the care of her family. If you are a member of this HEPPLER Family, or you know . . . [Yes! There’s more!]

Bethel Cemetery, DeKalb County, Missouri

The Bethel Cemetery in Weatherby, DeKalb County, Missouri, has been updated and all of the photos taken by Kelly and her sister, Bonnie, have been uploaded and referenced.

This cemetery was established by deed from Earl Richards to George L. Bray and Russell N. Salmon, Trustees, dated 25 April 1961, filed 6 August 1962, book 146, page 283. There are no burials in this cemetery prior to that time. It is often confused with the Bethel Cemetery in the town of DeKalb in Buchanan County, which is much older.
