Abner & Leora Oberholtzer


Abner and Leora Oberholtzer from Wisconsin. They were married ten days ago and are on their Honeymoon, at least what we call a Honeymoon. Leora was a Graber from Davies County Indiana. Her cousins are the Homer Graber clan. She was first married to John Kilmer who was a young widower and moved to Missouri. Later John & Leora moved to Withee Wisconsin. Abner was and is a Bishop from the same area. Both partners died within the last year or two and now these two are husband and wife. I am glad for them and wish them many years together.

  2. Oh wait a minute am I hearing this right and making the correct connection to people I used to be with occasionally in Davis County? Did she have two older brothersnamed Delmar Nd Marvin? And Cousins Katie and Anna? Katie, Anna, my sister Martha and I used to go to Davis County for visits many moons ago. Would be interesting to know if she is related to that Graber family. Yes, they do look very happy.

  3. Katie, this is what I find so confusing. Are they Amish? or Mennonite? He is a Bishop and he has his photo taken?

    1. They are Mennonites. His type of Mennonite have no beards. They dress Mennonite. I didn't know how they are on photos but I decided to find out by asking them if I may take their photo? There was no objection whatsoever and so I assume they have cameras and have no problem with photos. I admit I don't know this group of Mennonites very well but I am learning more about them as they also winter in Pinecraft.

    3. She promised she would not put picture on computer so in turn she did. Was this rude?
