Throwback Thursday: Noslers in the Cemetery

From earlier today at Mt Hope Cemetery in San Diego.  James Milo Nosler and his sister-in-law Esther (Rittgers) Nosler lie side by side in the G. A. R. 1 area.

This picture represents what must have been a horrible time for my 2nd great grandfather, William H Nosler (1840-1914) -- his youngest brother James Milo Nosler died of tuberculosis on May 8, 1886 and then William's wife, my 2nd great grandmother Esther Loretta (Rittgers) Nosler died a year later (of unknown cause) on November 14, 1887, after 23 years marriage and 10 children.

William Nosler later died and is buried in Coquille, Coos, Oregon.
