Jacob Hepler

The Jacob Hepler and his wife look a lot like my great,great,grandfather Jacob Hepler.I have a picture of him and his wife,and their son Rankine. My folks are from Westmoreland County Pa.,I know that Rankine had a farm in Barren Run PA.Very close to Smithton and Mendon PA.

Hepler photo

Scott, Thanks for your reply! The photo belonged to my grandparents. My now deceased relatives identified all but three of the adults and one child. I do have a Jacob Hepler b. 1/7/1850, m. to Rachael Ovanda Hough with a son Aquilla Rankin. If this is your gg grandfather, he and my grandfather Walter Reynolds would be 1st cousins once removed. He was from the same area as your gg grandfather.
