Hello,

I am looking for information on the Moodler family:

Benjamin Moodler
Born: 5/28/1859 (Baden Germany)
Died: 6/13/1927
Buried: St. Bonaventure Cemetery, Olean, NY (Picture has recently been to to Find-A-Grave website)

Mary Jane (Wills???) Moodler
Born: 9/27/1858
Died: 7/25/1939 Erie, Erie County, Pennsylvania
Buried: ???? - The Erie County Public Library has online that the obit publication was 7/26/1939. I have sent in a form to receive the obit, but am waiting on it. St. Bonaventure Cemetery has also been contacted but I have not heard from them as well.

Children to Ben & Mary were:[/b]

Susannah "Susie" (Moodler) Elling
Born: 3/10/1882
Died: 5/2/1954
Buried: St. Bonaventure Cemetery, Olean, NY

Lillian J. (Moodler) Kellogg
Born: 10/28/1894
Died: 10/7/1984
Married: Asa Clifford Kellogg
Buried: Mount of Olives Cemetery, Erie County, PA

Emma (Moodler) Southworth/Scheloske/Johnson
Born: 11/26/1879
Died: 1/12/1959

Fred Moodler
Born: 7/13/1887
Died: 6/9/1898 (Drowned)

John Moodler
Born: 12/31/1875
Died: 2/25/1957
Married Lulu Cox

Susannah "Susie" Moodler is my great grandmother. Any information on Ben & Mary Jane Moodler would be appreciated since they are my great-great grandparents.

I believe that Mary Jane's maiden name is Wills for a number of reasons. When checking online for information on Lillian (Moodler) Kellogg, it stated that the maiden name to her mother was Wills. In an 1880 U.S. Census, Castenea Township, Clinton County, Pennsylvania. Ben & Mary Moodler had Frank Wills (age 13) living with them. So any information on the Wills family would be great.

Ben Moodler according to the census shows he was born in Baden Germany. In the 1870 U.S. Census it showed that Ben was living with John & Mary Moodler in Clinton County, PA. I have been able to confirm with newspaper articles that Charles F. Moodler who is buried in Pleasant Valley Cemetery is Ben's brother. In 1880 in Castenea, Ben was living in a house that Charles owned and it burned down.

There is a little more to share. If you think you can help, I'll be happy to provide that information. Thanks in advance for your help!

Sincerely,

Richard

Hello,

About a year and a half ago I was working on finding out more on the Moodler family. I continue to look for information on my Great-Great-Grandfather Benjamin Moodler:

Benjamin Moodler
Born: 5/28/1859 (Baden Germany)
Died: 6/13/1927
Buried: St. Bonaventure Cemetery, Olean, NY

He is buried at St. Bonaventure. His wife, Mary Jane (Wills) Moodler died and was buried in Calvary Cemetery in Erie, Pennsylvania. (unmarked grave)

Regarding Benjamin, my grandmother had stated that he had died in a hospital. From what little she said it sounded like a mental institution. Last night I found the New York Census from 1925 that has Benjamin Moodler in the Cattaraugus County Home on Lake Street in Machias, NY.

When searching for information about the Cattaraugus County Home I found out that the Cattaraugus County Research Library is now in the last surviving structure of the 19th Century Cattaraugus County Alms-House and Insame Asylum which became the Cattaraugus County Home/Farm and Infirmary.

I will contact the research library to see if they have any information. Does any one have knowledge or information of the Cattaraugus County Home/Farm and Infirmary?

Thanks in advance!

Sincerely,

Richard Clark
