Stella Rose Mohler Gilbert

This post includes the information found on the internet for the family of Stella Mohler Gilbert. The basic family structure was obtained from the Terrel Hayes Family WorldConnect database (see links below, in footnotes). An email was sent to the person who submitted the database to see if contact information was available, but she does not have addresses for any descendants. My next step will be able to obtain obituaries for the people for whom I have dates of death. Perhaps a descendant will see this post and leave a comment or contact me via email: kinexxions "at" gmail "dot" com
