Interment in St. Mary Cemetery, Lancaster. (Lancaster Eagle-Gazette obituary).

I have requested a copy of Harry's and Rosanna's marriage certificate from Kenton County, Kentucky. Knowing that Harry had been previously married may give some credence to the possibility that this Harry Hepler is Ida Gerner's husband/widow.

I hope that someone who is a descendant of Harry Hepler will contact me after reading this blog post.

  1. HI I am a decendant to Harry Hepler! I found your blog, I have been trying to find information on him as well! I can give you what I have, perhaps we can share data! I don't have much he has been hard to track and I don't actually spend that much time working on it, hit or miss...
    thanks
