This is a photo from a Brassfield family album. It did not have much for a caption, but it is from Oak Hill Cemetery, Cherokee, Iowa and shows the Evers family grave site. I think it dates to the 1920s. The family connection is that Ben Evers married my 2nd great grand mother, Nellie Brassfield. Ben was the step-grand father of my grandfather, Elvis J. Brassfield. These graves are the graves of his parents and other relatives.
Unfortunately the stones are not very readable, so I'll have to try to find out what they say at a later date.

|George Henry, Mary Hay and John Harrison Stotler|
Today I'm also posting some notes I found in the Newspapers listed on Newspaperarchive.com. People with IP addresses in Wisconsin can access the archive for free via http://www.badgerlink.net courtesy of the State of Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. These posts give a bit of detail on George and John Stotler from 1890 to 1902. I'm searching for more details about what happened to Rev. John H. Stotler after his brother died in 1902. According to these articles, Rev. Stotler moved around quite a bit from Ohio to Indiana to Illinois preaching at various Christian churches. There might be more to find, but I will look again another day.

Click the labels for George and Henry to see more articles about them. I'm still searching for more information about Rev. John Harrison Stotler. He was alive at the time of George's death in 1902 and after that, I lose track of him. I don't know when he died or where he is buried.

|Purdue University School of Pharmacy completion certificate, 1894|
They are somewhat interesting telling the cost of attending Purdue's School of Pharmacy for a semester. A semester was only $39, but according to the inflation calculator what cost $39 in 1893 would cost $934.10 in 2010. Still $934 for a semester is a pretty good deal.

|Rev. John H. Stotler|
His wife Anna Perry apparently died in Ohio not long after the 1910 census, but she was living with her family. John Stotler was not listed as living with her in Ohio. It is not known to me if they divorced (which seems unlikely for a Christian minister in the early 1900s) or if he died. I have been looking through the diaries of Mary H. Stotler-Ross, but she doesn't seem to mention her brother John. She does mention George, but not John. He is not buried with his father and brother at Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis.

|Stotler cousins in Kansas, June 1887|
To be honest, I'm not certain about the part of the caption that says his two brothers were also killed at Chickamaugua. I found an Civil War book that said the following:
- Henry Stotler, PVT, US Army, 115th Illinois Infantry, Company "B". Died in Cincinnati, Ohio, November, 1862
- William Stotler, 115th Illinois Infantry, Company "B". Died at Covington, Ky., October 21, 1862.
