To all descendants of John Ruben Dershem and Louisa Imler Dershem:
I have in my possession a some old family photographs of certain members of this Ohio family as a result of being the grandson of Samuel Alfred Miover/Myover. Samuel Alfred Miover was born to Louisa Imler, daughter of George Imler and Sarah Betz/Betts, on December 24, 1859 (in Allen County, Ohio, we are told) before she married John R. Dershem in January of 1861. S.A. Miover was raised by John and Louisa, and was a half brother to all their children. He was called Alfred by the family and was a loving brother.
Some of these photographs I can't identify. However, I recognize pictures of their son Jesse Dershem whom my father knew and visited with.
I would be glad to send these photographs (or copies thereof) to any of this Dershem family's descendants that would like to have them. Please contact me.
Does anyone know if a Dershem family bible exists that might contain information as to the name of S. A. Myover's biological father? If so, please advise.
