Ulrich and Juliana Lahr
In 1891, my great grandfather Rev. William Weiler, age 14 and fresh off the boat from Germany, went to live and work with Ulrich Lahr and his wife and son William in Lafayette, Indiana.
Rev. Weiler spoke of them in his autobiography. I am posting this PDF of an excerpt about the Lahrs for any descendants who might find this.
Feel free to download the excerpt, as well as the full autobiography.
Please reach out to me. I’d love to get some better photos of them and of Lafayette from that time if you have them. We aren’t related, but our ancestors knew each other.
