S: Alta Leatherman Pontious Iseler

BC: It all started with an interest in the 2'x3' pictures that hung in my bedroom while I was growing up in Pt Hope MI. As a Mom of three,I traveled to Indiana,Ohio,Minn. and Michigan on the trail of pictures of grandparents. Well,low and behold,I had to call in the reserves. Mom (Alta Ellen Leatherman Pontious Iseler) had a desire even as a young married woman of twenty years old to know the names of her ancestors. When Grandma (Lillie Kempton Frost Leatherman) came to Ft. Wayne, IND to visit Mom and her young family in 1940, Mom picked Grandma Lillie's brain as to the names of her ancestors as far back as Grandma Lillie could remember. Seventy years later Mom still has the notebook with her original notes from all the grandparents names that Grandma Lillie could remember. Dad (Robert Iseler),Mom and I went on trips each year starting in 1985. My vacations were with Mom and Dad and then with Mom,cousin Leona Frost,Derek Breault and myself.These vacations were spent in cemeteries,libraries,and courthouses ever since. We have been in cemeteries during rain and snow,in many different states. If it wasn't for Mom the pictures and notes for this photo history would not have been compiled. As we pass through life our chief concern is with the present. We think little of the future,and when we do it is usually with some thought, and perhaps fear of the near and distant future which concerns ourselves only. Into the minds of all too few,comes a thought of the distant past,and our debt to our ancestors. Thanks to Alta Iseler we know many detairs of our ancestors.
